Smokette Tournament Ice Times

Hi, ladies!

It’s time to make up the teams for our home tournament Feb 16th – 18th.

Team 1 will play 2 games. 
The cost is $40
Saturday 9:00am
Saturday 6:55pm

Team 2 will play 3 games.
The cost is $60
Friday 9:45pm
Saturday 11:50am
Sunday 11:50am

Please reply to Carolyn A at cjamantea at gmail dot com indicating which team you would like to play on.
Last year it worked out with good numbers on both teams. That being said, if the numbers are super lopsided this year, we will draw names to see who gets to play on which team.

Once we know who is playing on which team, I will start collecting money – either by cash at practices, or by etransfer to the team bank account (details to follow).

Please don’t forget that everyone needs to sign up for 2 volunteer slots and also bring either a salad or dessert to the supper on Saturday (details on this later).

Shaping up to be another excellent tournament!

Trail Ice

Hi, everyone!  It has come to my attention that someone has been calling the City of Trail to complain about our Trail ice.  As I am in charge of booking the Trail ice I would prefer that people send their complaints to me and that way the City is only having to deal with one contact person.


Ice Time Tomorrow, Sunday 4:45pm with Cougars

Last minute ice time tomorrow with the Cougars, no charge.

Trail 4:45pm big ice.

Pass on the word as not everyone will read their e-mails.
