Summer 2018, week 3 update

OTHC Members,

 Hope everyone enjoyed their Holiday. Back to Hockey tonight at 6:30 and 8:00 for the rest of July. I would like to welcome ourRookies into OTHC summer season. We have a unique collection of newbies spread out on all our various teams and they have great things to say about the league. Announcing: Gary Myers & Rob Cruz of Mustangs, Gerald Shemanski of Chiefs, Wayne Frey, John Skursky & David Mooers of Wolverines, and Matt Considine, Chris Hartmann, and Lucas Mark(son of Alex) of the Bombers. Long-time member Alex Mark is appreciating a unique opportunity to play with his son. And speaking of long-time members, “Chewey” has made a come-back out of retirement with a new hip; to play between the pipes once again. A lot of great stories here…

This is Gary and Gerald’s first time ever playing organized Hockey. And I covered how proud I was that the Mustangs have embraced Gary and they work at developing and setting him up for big plays. Not to be outdone, we saw the Chiefs setup Gerald Shemanski the same way, and he came through with beuatiful Game-tieing & Game Winning goals under encouragement from Coach Santa & the boys in blue.

This is the culture we are trying to foster here, so please take note and give the new guys a little extra room to make a play. Nobody will really remember who won the Beer league Cup in summer of 2018, but all of our members will know who the good-natured guys are, and have respect for how they play the game. That’s the Locker Room that guys want to be in, the one that is fun and shares each game as a real TEAM.

          Please make sure you have a Matching Team Jersey, and a unique Jersey Number!

                   Stop in the Pro Shop, we may even have a Loaner…and if you borrowed one from us, PLEASE return it…Thanks.

                                A 2 min Minor for Delay of game can be called on heathens that can’t dress properly.

TAILGATING/FOOD:
 **NOTE: You may see Food assignments above, However we have not yet begun Hosting. Highlighting left in place for illustration to Captains of what Food-Hosting could be for One-Team-Each scenario if we begin on 7/17.
Many of the guys are missing the food, so we encourage everyone to bring a little something along until we can find a Food Truck or something of the sort. We are trying to get the Knights parents to come Host, and any ideas or connections to a Food Truck are appreciated. We may have each team Host at least one time. I know Danny K is ready to break out his apron.

League Chirps:

Feel free to send me anything you want to contribute anything to be shared with the rest of the Members. Even advertising for your Business, as our Members like to deal with Guys they know, and who won’t check from behind!

NOTE: For Summer season, we may not be sending regular Weekly Updates unless there is news or content to Report. If you see something, say something!
