As you are all aware, the concerns about the Coronavirus threat has forced our hands in cancelling the balance of the current hockey season. Many of us had Provincials, tournaments, year end events and other wrap up activities we were looking forward to. It is with sincere regret that we must cancel all these activities. We are a community that supports one another and generally does things for the right reasons. Today, we are putting the health and wellbeing of each member ahead of our sport. It is important to remember this past season fondly. There were many positives even though it ended rather abruptly. We trust that circumstances will improve, and we will be on track for next season.
We have several loose ends to address. Due to the health-related concern, we will delay our upcoming AGM by at least 30 days and will provide an exact plan to you shortly. Our yearly awards banquet will be canceled. For those of you that have tablets, please contact our head manager Sheryl and arrange to return them. We ask that managers collect laundered jerseys and hang onto them briefly. We will work with our equipment manager to arrange dates to return them once the obvious threat has abated. You will receive an email from Terry, our treasurer, confirming details about finances, closing out team accounts and so forth. He will be specific about needs and requirements in his correspondence.
Please direct any issues of concern to your team manager or division manager. They will consider your inquiry and provide information to you as requested. The situation is fluid and new information is coming our way regularly. We will keep you all informed. While this season is over, we will move forward with appropriate planning for next year with the hope that we may all return safely to the rink. I would like to thank all our volunteers including board members, coaches, managers, team officials and anyone that helped us in creating memorable experiences for our children this past season. Each of you made our association better. To all members- stay safe and come back next season. Thanks for your understanding during this challenging circumstance
