Wednesday Nov 16th, Thursday Nov 17th and Christmas Party

We did well this week in splitting up the teams, may be too well as Wednesday we had 13 skaters and one goalie, Thursday was 10 skaters and two goalies!

This week we have both Wed Nov 16th and Thursday Nov 17th, please check out Bench App and come play hockey!

Christmas Party this year has been booked for Saturday December 17th, potluck at the Rossland Arena Lounge!


2017 Rossland Round Up. It's never too early to sign up!


    It must be time to send out the invitations for our Annual Rossland Roundup Tournament, because I am already getting requests about dates and spaces.

    The Rossland Roundup will be held on Feburary 17th, 18th and 19th, 2017.  Due to an increase in ice rental costs, your entry fee this year will be $800, which includes 3 games, beer tickets after every game, dinner and party on Saturday night and all the fun you can have.  As always, the hijincks will include 50-50 draws, door prizes from the amazing businesses in the Rossland/Trail area, and a raffle for signed NHL jerseys and high end hockey swag.

    We have had lots of inquires about our tournament, so to hold your spot, please get us a deposit cheque of $200 no later than December 15th, 2016.  There are 4 spots available in each division - Men's Open, Men's Over 45, and Women's Open.  Priority to returning teams until November 30th only.  Please mail cheques to P.O Box 1973, Rossland B.C, V0G 1Y0 or e-transfer to janice.n at telus dot net. Don't forget to include your team name, and division preference.  An e-mail with your intentions would be appreciated!

    We are so looking forward to seeing you all again!

Wednesday Additional Ice Times and Cougars Nov 13th

Hello Smokettes,

Due to our amazing enthusiasm for women's hockey and the great numbers on Thursday's we have added some Wednesday nights. The idea would be for the weeks where we have both Wednesday and Thursday, ever Smokette would attend either the Wednesday or the Thursday. Hopefully we are able to self regulate and generally even out the two nights. If this informal system does not work and  we all end up on one night, we will have to reassess the situation.

My estimate from BenchApp is that we should have between 15 and 18 people committed as some do not use BenchApp.

The additional Wednesday's are on the kids ice in Trail at 7:30pm:
November 9th
November 16th
December 14th and
December 21st

If the number keep up and this works we will add more Wednesdays in the new year.

No change to Saturday's as we have not had 38 skaters yet!

One more additional ice time:
The cougars would like to host us on their ice time, Nov 13 at 445 pm to 6 pm in Trail on the Big Ice.  We have invited them to Rossland for the 10th of December at 730.

Bring A Buddy - Sat Nov 5th Rossland 7:30pm

Saturday in Rossland is now Bring A Buddy since a lot of the team will be in Creston and the Wildcats numbers are very low. If you are available, come play!

A great turnout tonight Smokettes, I think we had 38 skaters and 2 goalies, I think this is a Smokette record!

If you seem to be missing a glove Dixie ended up with extra in her bag, it is Nike, let her know if it is yours. Cell: 250-two3one-9466
