OTHC Hockey Update- Winter 2018 Week #5

OTHC Members,

USA Women’s Hockey & Men’s Curling teams have brought home the Gold. Not hearing much discussion about it? Does anyone watch the Olympics anymore? …Is this thing on? There seems to be certain circles of people that do like the Thrill of Victory, even some dwelling on agony of defeat(Sorry, Dr Mott & Canadian Mike!).  Our spirited circles are full of fun and interesting people, we just need to expand and include more of our members. This is what a Hockey Club is about….not just showing up to play a game and depart 1.5 hrs later. We are looking to share the spirit and comraderie of the league with ALL of our members.

We’ll start off by sharing some Traditional Tailgating on 3/11 with Vipers hosting. At the bottom of this Email you’ll also see a “Special Events” heading, where we are looking to get some members together and rent Ice for some bonus League gatherings. Think about it, and add your input on what could be interesting for our Club.

REGISTRATION:

  • Registration Period Closed
  • Any player not completing Registration will now be removed from Rosters. Your Name must appear on Roster and You Must SIGN-IN,  in order to take the Ice.
  • Notify Marge at the Rink ([email protected] or 570-883-1100, ext 0), if questions.

SCHEDULE:  (to April)

Easter Sunday– No Games

Special Events:

I am looking for more OTHC involvement in bonus events for our Hockey Club. Ice Times are available to do our own Rental and hold some extra On-ice events. Possibilities are endless: All-Star game, Alumni games, OTHC vs Bethlehem/Binghamton/Reading +35 League guys.

I typically get a “Hey Beck, we should do ???” and So, I have tried to put many things together and attendance has been poor lately, like Stew’s retirement party where even Stew didn’t show up! If anyone has a strong idea and some Member’s support and involvement; I’ll surely help promote and make it happen.

For now, we’ll start with bringing Tailgating back by popular opinion: March 11th faces off with Vipers Hosting.

 

Thanks for Participating & Enjoy the Club,

Easter Sunday– No Games

Wally Ice Fest Pond Hockey Tournament:

BIG Thanks to all that came and supported our very first Winter Classic event. It was deemed a success, and should grow into a regular winter event.

I am looking for a few good Volunteers to collaborate/share ideas and help with Ice Crew & Reffing, and would love more OTHC involvement. Special Thanks to Jeff Stackhouse for the awesome Drone Footage.
