Donation to Carol Update

On a beautiful summer day in June 2013, Carol Enns experienced devastating injuries in a motor vehicle accident involving a drunk driver north of Colville, WA.

Carol was a long time member of the Smokette's Women's hockey team, and living the physically active life that so many of us enjoy in the Kootenays.

In February 2014, the Smokette's held their annual Rossland Round-Up Charitable Hockey tournament.  To support our teammate, the Smokette's focused on Carol as our main recipient of charitable funds from the tournament.

On October 30th, 2014, the Smokette's were honoured to present Carol with a cheque for $4426.00.  The Smokette's would like to thank their direct sponsors, Teck Metals, Nelson & District Credit Union, and Kootenay Savings Credit Union, along with all the local businesses in Rossland and Trail who provided donations for door prizes and raffles, and helped the Smokette's make a difference in our community again this year.

Ali, Kari and Carol

Playing in Nelson this Friday night! 9pm

Hey ladies we are slated to play Nelson Drillers in the old civic arena this Friday night from 9-10pm, so hopefully we fill a few cars and head over... maybe some dinner in Nelson before??
Also please add Friday Dec 5th 9-10 pm in Nelson as the schedule was handed out before these games were confirmed. I picked those dates because we don't have any ice those following Saturdays. (just happened to be the old rink ice times... oh well)
Nelson Drillers will be coming to our ice Nov.22.(they might not have too many, but will keep you posted)
Cheers, Beers, Brazieres !!

If you did not get the Doodle link please e-mail and I will send it to you.

Smokette Jersey Deposit or Purchase Information

Hello, Smokettes!

It was decided at the AGM that we need to address the inventory of our jerseys and perhaps purchase more if need be.
It was also decided that we hold a $100 jersey deposit from each player until the jerseys are returned at the end of the season (see AGM minutes posted on the Smokettes website). 
Of course, if you would like to purchase your set of jerseys, you need only pay $100 and they’re yours!

Carolyn will be collecting either $100 cash, or a $100 cheque (post-dated to April 15, 2015) from each player at our practices in the coming weeks.
The money/cheques will be returned at the end of the season when you turn your jerseys in – it’s that easy!

Also, there was mention of Smokette socks (these look especially nice in team photos, and when we play tournaments). Black socks with a thick white stripe (bordered by narrow red stripes) are available at Gericks in Trail.

The sooner we can collect the deposits and straighten out the jersey inventory, the better!

Thank you!!
