Grand Forks Update

Hello Smokettes,
   From what I understand Smokettes take 15 to tournaments, first to pay, get to play.  So at this point we have 3 spots left. For those that brought $$ last night, sorry I am sick or I would have been there. 

Hotel booked for Saturday night Nov 28th at Motel 99.  Cost is $79 per night plus tax.  If you would like a bed of your own please let me know asap.  Deadline for hotel cancellation is Saturday, November 21, 2015 so make note as I don't want anyone without a bed.

Still waiting on schedule.  I have asked, if possible for 2 games Saturday and 1 Sunday.  As well, I've gently reminded them of travel time etc, and Grand Forks said they would do what they could.  They come to our tournament so they know the travel, etc required.  Again fingers crossed but we'll take what we get.

I think that is it.  Have a great skate Saturday as I'm out of town but will be there Thursday Nov 19th :)

thanks for your patience

Creston - Fun, Fun, Fun, Now onto Grand Forks!!!

Hello Smokettes,
 Well I think we all survived Creston, barely lol   We won all three games, had tons of laughs, and best of all were treated to an outstanding, bar cheering karaoke rendition of 'Piano Man' that will keep us smiling for years to come.  Thanks Mary!!!  I will never think of that song the same again, fabulous :)

Which brings me to our next tournament;
  Grand Forks - Nov 27-29, 2015
  Cost $50 plus room
  Schedule - TBA  (I've requested if possible to play 2 games sat and 1 sunday)  
  Rooms are booked

So we have 9 skaters so far...sound familiar hahaha   If you are interested please let me know sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.  I have a feeling this one will be just as memorable!!!
thanks ladies

Saturday Nov 7th; 11:30am Bring A Buddy

Hello Smokettes and Buddies,

With the tournament in Creston this weekend it looks like our numbers are going to be quite low on the ice tomorrow so we have decided to open it up to bring a Buddy, male or female. Come on out and skate skate skate.

We do not have any goalies at this point because both Mallory and Janice are going to be in Creston. If you know of someone who wants to play sign them up and send an e-mail to just so we do not get too many goalies.

See you all tomorrow.

Bench App

Hi Everyone,

You will all be receiving an email (maybe in your junk mail) from BenchApp - it is a new app we are using for the Smokettes to try and keep track of how many players we will have at each practice/game. That way if we are really short we can always invite players ect.  The only way this will work is if people give their availability - so please click whether you are "In" or "Out"!  You do not have to download the App, as you'll get emails but it is nice to have the app to see numbers and the calendar of when our games are. Here is the link to download the app:)

I have added each of you to the roster, so when you go on the app - you can edit your information and put in your position, phone number ect if you would like. There is also a way to message each other with the chatter feature for just quick reminders.

If you have any questions or want to be deleted because you are not playing this year pls send me an email and let me know at h_schadeli at hotmail dot com.  Hopefully this will work out well!!
