Hockey Tournament Update

Thank you everyone for a great tournament, here are some updates of the upcoming tournaments:

Hello Smokettes,
Tournament updates…
1) Max Ice Tournament - March 11-13th, 2016
Castlegar – Unfortunately not enough interest as of deadline.  We’ll try next year.  However, Cougars are looking for skaters to possibly throw in a mixed team.  If you are interested please let me know and I will get you a contact. 
2) March 18-20, 2016
A) Revelstoke – Women’s division is full.  Unfortunately, we did not have enough interest so maybe next year.  This looks like a good one to try.
B) Nelson Thorman Drillers – Again, not enough interest at deadline so we’ll try next year.
C) Grand Forks Black Betty’s Game & Party!
The Grand Forks Black Betty’s have invited us to play on Friday, March 18th, 2016 at 5:30 pm between their men’s league final.  We can go as a team, or if only a few skaters are interested then it will be a ‘throw in the sticks’ and away we go. Cost of ice is covered.  As well, a dinner/dance has been organized next door at the curling rink with a band and DJ ready to go.   If you are interested please email
DEADLINE: Wednesday, March 2, 2016 to register
3) Blueliners Tournament - April 1-3rd, 2016
Nelson – We had enough interest, but the Women’s Division is already full.  We are on a wait list if any teams cancel.  Again, we’ll try next year.
thanks everyone,

Serving It Right Bar Schedule

Hi ladies,
So just trying to check off a piece of organizing for our tourney. We need people to sign up for bartending shifts that have a 'serving it right' certificate.
We need Friday night from 5-7 ish I can do this slot if no one can,
Also Saturday day from 10-7
And Sunday we have covered but if anyone can help this day from 10 - 4 that is great because we will be making Caesars and I'm sure it will be busy!
Also looking for a few people to help transport alcohol to the arena when I pick up. This time is TBD.
If you guys want to message me your availability that would be super! Thanks so much! Looking forward to the fun.

Volunteer Schedule

Hi, everyone!  The tournament is next weekend already!!  Here is what I have for the lounge sign up sheet so far.  I know a few of you told me when you wanted a shift but I've totally forgotten so if you don't see your name on the list, shoot me an email (bridgetkivell at  I also need 10 people to sign up to bring a salad.  There is no $10 discount to tournament fees for doing will be out of the goodness of your heart...and also because you paid a reduced fee because you were going to help out with the tournament :)

Less than 2 Weeks Until our Tournament

Hello Smokettes!

    The countdown is on, less than
Janice 2 weeks until our tournament, the most fun you can ever have in an arena!  We need your help to make it happen.

1.  I need 6 Smokettes to purchase 6-15 packs. Bring your reciept and the drinks to the arena Friday or Saturday, and Janice will reimburse you with cash. E-mail Janice janice.n at telus dot net for more info

2.  I need a Smokette to coordinate some serious Smokette salad making!  We will need 12-15 salads for the dinner Saturday night, and we don't want them to all be the same.  If you are making a salad, please make a small card listing the ingredients, for allergy concerns and food preferences. Email janice.n at telus dot net

3.  Sign up for your game times!  E-mail Christine christinevenus721 at or Tracy yotrace at with your preferences.

4. Sign up to help in the lounge.  Many hands make light work, plus it's fun.  E-mail Bridget  bridgetkivell at for the task schedule, or Leanne leanne.hall at if you can help set up on Friday, or tear down on Saturday.

5. Nicole needs help picking up alcohol, mix and ice on Friday, and getting the bar set up.  Nicole has worked really hard at getting this organized, lets make this part easy for her!  Email niklangille at

    Let's not forget to have fun!  So excited to be spending a great weekend with you all.
