      Hello From The BAHL Office! 

       

      The gun raffle is picking up speed.  Please come by the league office and pick up a packet of 10 tickets to sell.  This is a great opportunity for our league to raise funds for our off-season maintenance items and a strong chance to win some great guns!  Only 1,000 tickets will be sold.  The winning tickets will be drawn during our Casino Night on April 28th.  Winners do not need to be present, but it’s a great event and the guns will be on display that evening.

       

      Responsible Sports parent tip of the week:  ”Commit to conducting yourself by a code, which Positive Coaching Alliance calls "Honoring the Game". To remember components of this code, remind yourself and your children that Honoring the Game means respecting the sport's ROOTS, where ROOTS stands for Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates and Self.

       

      The BAHL office will be closed February 15-20.  I will be out of town and unable to return emails or phone calls until my return on the 21st.

       

      Thank Yous:

       

      Last week I mentioned our arena and league sponsors.  This week I would like everyone to know about those individuals or businesses that provide us with discounted services or products throughout the season or helped us with a specific project.  These discounts and donations help us keep our fees for skating as low as possible.  If you find yourself in need of any services or products that these business could provide, please consider giving them your support and telling them thank you for their support of our league.

      BAHL Casino Night:

       

      Mark your calendars for April 28th!  This is our annual fundraising event – Casino Night.  The BAHL relies heavily on the money raised during this event to help fund repairs and improvements to the facility.  We can use everyone who is willing to help make this a successful event again this season.  Last year’s event earned just under $10,000.  If you are interested in helping with this event, please contact me or our Marketing Committee Chairperson, Glen Korf.

      Ice is still available for rent the weekend of February 18-19.  This is a long weekend for our kids – great time for an extra practice or maybe a scrimmage.  Call or email for times.

        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.
