Could we have the boys to the rink by 6:45pm on Friday?  We'd really appreciate it to have a little extra time before this game.

Thanks guys!

Provincial Notes

 Just a few notes concerning our upcoming Provincials Weekend.......

Bell Aliant is the major sponsor for the PeeWee Provincials and have provided us with some patches that HAVE to be sewn on the jerseys. The rules are they have to be present on the jersey for the player to play in the tournament. It was decided that they should go on just below the Hillside Motors patch on the front and offset if possible.....and no, I don't want to sew it myself, thanks....thanks for asking though:)

On the topic of jerseys, we will need the jerseys turned back in at the conclusion of our Provincial run. Hopefully, this will be late on Sunday.  Darryl has graciously offered to wash them all before returning them. 

The boys decided they would like to class the place up a bit over the weekend and have chosen to go with the collared shirt and tie look.  So, if we could have the boys all GQ-ed up for their enterance and exit of the rink, that would be great!

Finally, the $20 per family (I'm assuming everybody knows about this) to cover extra costs of running the provincials is due on Friday at the game. The sooner we can get this out of the way, the better. Thanks guys.

Year End Tournament

A couple of weeks ago we asked for your position on whether or not the Ice Hogs are interested in entering the year end tournament in North River.  After hearing from most families, it has been decided that we will not be playing in this tournament.  Thanks everyone for your input on this decision. 

February 5, 2012

Pownal Tournament Update

Well, it looks like it's no crossovers for the Ice Hogs, boys and girls.  We hope everybody had fun and have learned something that we can take to Hampton with us in a little over a months time.  Gonna be a fun time !!

Remember boys, being prepared and focused, executing our practiced team skills, and controlling our emotions during the game are the keys to our success. Please think about this as we continue on our way to securing a Provincial playoff spot.

Parents Survey

We are asking the parents for some feedback on the option of entering the North River Minor Hockey year end tournament.  We have not budgeted for this tournament and would have to approach each family for approximately $43 to take part. 

We have surrounded ourselves with some great sponsors this year which have afforded us the enviable position of not having to ask for any additional money from each of the players familys.  We take pride in this. We chose affordable tournaments for the boys to take part in this year and unfortunately, in our opinion, North River's didn't fall into this category.  That being said, we would like to know what your thoughts are on this. If the majority wishes to go into this 4th tournament for the boys this year, we will collect the money and go forward from there.

Please let us know your position on this by Friday, the 27th, so we can let the tournament organizers know where the Ice Hogs stand. 

Thanks again Ice Hog Moms & Dads!
