Geotech Drilling has in­creased their spon­sor­ship of this year’s East­gate Memo­rial Hockey tour­na­ment to $12,000. The com­pany’s man­ag­ing direc­tor Gary Bar­nett said they have de­cided to in­crease the prize money to cater for teams that are com­ing in to play.

“This is the third year of a three year deal we are do­ing with Marist Hockey so we de­cided to give them $12, 000,” Bar­nett said. “Geotech has spon­sored lawn bow­els and hockey as every­one else in the ma­jor sports seemed to get a lot of pro­mo­tion. So we just help out as our cor­po­rate re­spon­si­bil­ity. We are look­ing for­ward to the com­pe­ti­tion next week­end and hope the teams en­joy them­selves.”

Marist Hockey pres­i­dent Peni Si­ga­bal­avu said they are hop­ing to make it a fun-filled event. “At the mo­ment we still have a num­ber of teams ex­press­ing their in­ter­est to come so we do not have a con­firmed num­ber as yet.” Si­ga­bal­avu thanked Geotech Drilling for their con­tin­u­ous sup­port which has al­lowed them to as­sist the teams tak­ing part in the tour­na­ment.
