Lacrosse Tourney Being Considered

Wallaceburg Minor Lacrosse organizers want to bring the Rock the Box 2014 lacrosse tour to Chatham-Kent.

Board member Jason Nantais says it would be the only Canadian stop on the tour and box lacrosse is different from the american style of play.

“So it’s new to them, a funner, different style, a new way to play the sport,” says Nantais. “We’ve been playing it like this in Wallaceburg for 50 years. So it’s not new to us, but it certainly would be a nice way to bring a big event to our town.”

Nantais would like to hold the event August 23 and 24 to line-up with the Kinsmen Ribfest.
