Drillers Tournament Interest Required by Friday Noon

Hello Ladies,

Kari K has been contacted by the Drillers for their Tournament on March 27th to 29th.
If interested please sign up by email kari directly at kuznecov at
If we get enough interest by this Friday Feb 27th (YES THIS FRIDAY BEFORE NOON)  then she will sign us up and details will follow. She was hoping this info could go out in an email asap, and be talked about Thursday eve at hockey, could someone bring it up for her?  Can someone text her friday and let her know the general feeling about playing in this tourney, that would be great. No pressure, just thought it would be a fun one!

Note from Kari "This is just my take, I think the Drillers tourney would be really fun for ANY AND ALL of the Smokettes, (it is classified as intermediate, like Creston tourney) It does fall the last weekend of spring break, though"

spring tourney MARCH 27-29
We are going to organize both men and women’s teams for this tourney.  Please forward to your spouse/partner’s team contact so they can join us.  I need to confirm how much ice we will need for this awesome tournament.  Our complex is requesting payment for our ice slots for this tournament by March 1st, 2015 as there are many other user groups wanting more ice in March.  So if your team wants a spot we will need payment by March 1st in order to have ice time for your team to join in.  We would love to have six women’s teams so please pass this onto other teams you think would like to join in.  Intermediate level hockey.
 Saturday night – dance in the curling club – crawling distance from both rinks.
 Fee $750.00/team
 I need to know ASAP if you are in so please send your cheques to:
Theresa Montpellier
2206 Silver King Rd.
Nelson, BC  V1L 1C9 or email transfer to this email address.
Make cheques out to Nelson Women’s Hockey.
The main rule for the men’s teams is it is a 30+ tournament so very strict on that rule!

Nelson Looking for Players for Cranbrook Tournament

Janice received this e-mail from the Nelson ladies, they are looking for some players. If you are interested please contact Gabrielle: gabrielle.herle at

Good Morning Marnie and Janice,
And happy new year to you both!

It's Gabby from Castlegar (Nelson Blueliners) emailing you in hopes that you both and/or some ladies you know in the Trail/Rossland area might be interested in playing in the upcoming Cranbrook tournament. I'm trying to put a team together. The tournament is February 28-March 1, just those two days, and will be a three-game per team, fun, recreational tournament (no finals, and only six teams going) 
One of our players in Nelson (Franny) has offered accommodation directly beside the rink we will be playing in, a house that can hold 8 people-- and more, I'm sure, provided you bring a sleeping bag and pillow! 
There is a banquet dinner on the Saturday night, and for teams travelling the furthest away, the tournament organizer said she will try to save the earlier games on the Saturday for the closer teams.
It will be a lot of fun, so please spread the word and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me! 
Please let me know if you can make it as soon as possible, so that I can tell the organizer if we have a team or not.
Thanks so much, talk to you soon.

Gabrielle Herle
