      Hello From The BAHL Office! 

       

      We have a pretty light schedule this weekend.  Saturday at 2:45 pm and Sunday at 10:15 am our U16 team has home games.  Saturday evening the Billings Bulls host the Bozeman Ice Dogs, game time at 7:30 pm.  Come support your Billings Bulls as they enter the final month of the season!  Just a handful of Bulls regular season games remaining, with playoffs scheduled to begin March 1st!

       

      We need your help!  Our annual fundraiser, Casino Night, is in jeopardy of not happening.  This is a fairly large project that needs a team of members along with our board to put together.  Please consider helping out with this important event.  Without fundraising efforts, much-needed projects in the arena will not be completed.

       

      Speaking of fundraising, the magazine fundraiser is in full swing and due to finish up at the end of next week, February 11th.  This is a very easy way to raise money for our off-season projects so please consider participating.  If you did not receive a magazine packet, extras are available in the upstairs office hallway.  Return your packet to the league office on or before February 11th.

       

      Annual Meeting:

       

      My last update stated an incorrect date for the annual meeting.  The annual meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 5th at 6:00 pm.  Later this month we will begin taking nominations for the available board positions next season.  Please take some time to consider running for a position or nominating someone you feel would be a good asset to our leadership.

      Member Feedback Wanted:

      Please take the time during your listed practice to give the board feedback on your hockey experience this season and make suggestions on ways we could improve our program. 

      February 22:  Varsity @ 4:45 pm; Squirts @ 6:00 pm

      February 23:  Mites @ 6:30 pm; U16 @ 7:45 pm

      Februar y 24: Peewee Travel @ 7:15 pm, U15 House @ 8:30 pm

      Thank you:

      It has been fun watching our Learn to Play skaters each week learning new skills from the Bulls coaching staff and players.  I am not sure who is having more fun, the new kids or the Bulls players!  A huge thank you goes out to Chris Hartley and his players who volunteer each week to help out with this vital BAHL program!

      Boys & Girls Festival:

       

      The annual festival will be held March 10-13 in Helena.  On the main page of our website is a download link for more information on the festival and the application necessary for attendance.  The festival is open to players born in 1993-1998.

        Hello From The BAHL Office! 

         

        Ice looks great, the arena looks great and the number of skaters on the ice has been good this week.  One more week of our September schedule which is mainly drop-in sessions and then we move to our October practice schedule.  Don’t forget that you can view the arena schedule at any time through our website at www.centennialicearena.net, just choose the “view schedule” tab on the left side of the page. 

         

        Do you have a skater who is at least 16 years of age?  Does this skater need or want a job during the hockey season?  The arena is hiring for skate guards to help during public skate this season.  We will work around travel team schedules.  Send the office an email if you or your skater is interested.

         

        Peewee Tryouts:

         

        This weekend is the Peewee Travel Team tryout sessions:  Saturday @ 7:00 pm, Sunday @ 10:00 am and Sunday @ 5:00 pm.  Peewee parent meeting will be held during the Sunday 5:00 pm session.  Remember that your skater needs to attend two of the three sessions.

         

        Public Skate:

         

        Our regular season public skate sessions start this weekend!  Saturday and Sunday afternoon 1:00-2:45 pm both days.  Next week our Tuesday and Thursday noon sessions start as well (12:00-1:45 pm both days).

         

        Mouthguards:

         

        Ostby Orthodontics will offer a free mouthguard fitting which includes a free mouthguard on Sunday, October 7th 3:00-5:00 pm.  This fitting will take place at their heights office which is across Wicks Lane by Wal-Mart.  All BAHL and Learn to Play skaters are welcome to take advantage of this offer!

        Rental Equipment:

         

        Did you miss our equipment date yesterday for the first session of Learn to Play?  Cristina will be available on Saturday during the Learn to Play session at 12:00 to fit your skater.  Please send me an email if you are in need of equipment to get started for this first session. 

         

        Mite and Squirt players who need equipment for this season – we will schedule an equipment date for later in October to get you covered.
