      Hello From The BAHL Office! 

       

      Congratulations to the BAHL Varsity team!  This past weekend they skated hard at the MAHA High School State Championships taking second place after entering the tournament in fifth.  Fun weekend of hockey!

       

      Speaking of fun weekends of hockey – we have a number of weekends coming up with a lot of hockey happening at the arena.  First up is our Mite tournament, March 16-18, followed by the Squirt house tournament March 23-25 and closing out the month of March is our first adult hockey tournament.  The arena will be pretty quiet for Easter weekend April 6-8 but then we fill up again with the second and largest adult tournament April 13-15 followed by our last event of the season, Big Sky State Games. 

       

      Schedule Changes:

       

      Learn to Play Hockey session for March 17th has been moved to 12:00 pm.  This change is due to the Mite tournament taking place that weekend.

       

      Survey:

       

      The 2011-12 BAHL survey is available.  Please take a few minutes to complete this survey for us.  A summary of the survey results will be available at our annual meeting April 10th.  Copy and paste this link to your browser for access to the survey:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8SDJCYB

      Annual Meeting & Elections:

       

      The BAHL annual meeting and elections will take place April 10th at 6:30 pm.  Location:  Mansfield Center (Saint V’s Facility).  Drawings will be held during the evening for door prizes which will include three grand prizes of half off next season’s fees!  You must be present to win.

       

      This season there are three available board positions to fill.  If you are interested in running for one of the open positions, please contact a member of the nominating committee, George Bentzel or Layne Martin.  You may also contact the league office for more information as well.

       

      Due to the later date for this meeting, our regular board meeting will take place on April 16th instead of our  regular date of April 9th

       

      BAHL Casino Night:

       

      Planning is well underway for our biggest fundraising event of the year!  We have had a lot of expenses this season including a new compressor, extra Zamboni expenses, cooling tower repairs and more.  Adding this to a warmer than usual season which increases our utilities and decreases our number of public skaters, we are really hoping to raise a significant amount of money at this event. 

       

      You can help make this event a success in a number of ways:  volunteer on our committee to help plan and organize the event or provide a donation of an item or service for our silent auction; and/or attend.  April 28th, 6:00 – 11:00 pm at Yellowstone Country Club.  $35.00 entry gets a fantastic prime rib dinner and a fun evening.  An extra $100 gets you a seat at one of the poker tables!  Online registration will be available soon – tables will fill fast.

        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.
