UPDATE RE: COVID-19:
BURG POSTPONED UNTIL FALL 2020
It is with heavy hearts that, in response to the continued evolution of provincial COVID-19 directives, and to ensure the continued safety of our community, we at this time announce the postponement of the 2020 BURG Classic Charity Hockey Tournament & Community Event. We did not make this decision lightly.
Teams, Sponsors, & Community Partners
Those who have been identified as captains/team leads will be contacted by the committee in the coming days, and our committee will be engaging with those businesses and individuals that have sponsored or donated to the BURG Classic to discuss the implications of the postponement.
Dance Ticket Holders
All previously purchased dance tickets will remain valid, as the dance will be rescheduled in conjunction with the rescheduled tournament. Please hold on to your physical dance tickets! Should those who purchased tickets seek a refund, we will follow-up with a date and time when refunds can be collected once the risk of COVID-19 has subsided. Physical tickets will need to be returned to the committee to receive a refund.
We encourage everyone who sponsored, donated, or purchased a ticket to honour your donation to the BURG Classic so we can follow through with support for those individuals who have applied for support in 2020. Other ways you can continue to support the BURG Classic:

The BURG Classic has become an event that not only raises funds for those who need it most, but brings thousands of people into the town and generates business for local businesses throughout Lunenburg and surrounding communities. We sincerely encourage you to continue to support local and we look forward to getting together with all of you in the fall!

To date, The BURG Classic has donated over $165,000 to well-deserving individuals and communities across the South Shore.
