OTHC Hockey Update- Winter 2018 Week #8

OTHC Members,
Huge Thanks to The Vipers for starting off things with a Great opening of Hosting Tailgating with 24 ft of delicious Subs from Cangianos Deli….great Job Guys!! And another Big Thanks to the Brewins with a last minute Line Change for Hosting Tailgating tonight, exchanging dates with the Blue Squid for a later week.
We just ask that Players keep it contained to the Lobby and don’t take food all over the building and into the Locker Rooms. Please lend a small hand in keeping things clean and not leaving a trail of chips all over the mats. The whole idea is to socialize as a Club and to promote camaraderie in OTHC…. with just One week of hosting leading to SEVEN weeks of enjoying Tailgating is a pretty good deal!

Remember there is always one team dedicated on Clean-up, which if the whole team pitches in, should take only 5 mins…Thanks for your compliance

OTHC Members,

SCHEDULING ALERTAll Games are moved up by 30 Minutes!  Referees & Scorekeepers are already in place for the 5:00pm start for Tonight, and Captains of Early games are amenable, so we can get everyone an earlier start, since so many folks were already following an incorrect time change See Schedule below ->

Please keep it to the Lobby and don’t take food all over the building and into the Locker Rooms. Please lend a small hand in keeping things clean and not leaving messes that ruin a good thing for everyone.

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.

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,

OTHC Alumni Night- Tribute to Chewey

OTHC Members,

 
Just a brief News Update on Alumni Night and what to expect. No changes to Game Times or Schedule….all is expected to run on-time. We would really like to have good Participation from ALL of our Members. I want to Thank an OTHC Alum himself, Stew Hatchell for offering his Write-up(below) as a tribute to his old teammates.
 
Alumni Night & Fund Raiser:
 
This Sunday is our  “OTHC Alumni night”, where we honor our Original Members that have been key to success of this league:  Mike Chastwyck aka “Chewey” and Jimmy “Tubs” Tubridy. Tubs had a Family commitment pop up, and we will honor him(and others) at a future date.
 
Sun  Nov 26, 7:00pm
 
Little Knights Fund Raiser will Supply Food
 
Bring Cash for Donating for a Plate.
 
Sterry & WVIHL have offered Free Beer from IronMan Kegs
 
I hope all of our fans & friends will join us for helping with a Fund Raiser for the team, Cooked up by the Little Knights Hockey Parents. All are welcome and the Food begins getting served around 7:00pm to 10pm. It’s just $7 a plate, where can you get a deal like that? Right here at the local Rink- Revolution Ice Centre, and be amused watching the Over The Hill Club play. Where most players are better at eating the Biscuit, rather than passing it!
The menu
-Ziti -salad -bread/rolls -Meatballs -veggie tray -water -dressing -Parmesan cheese -desserts
 
Tribute to “Chewey & Tubs” :
 Inline image

 
Today, two veterans in long standing are retiring from the OTHC. They’ll both be missed in so many unique ways. We will miss your presence on & off the rink. We will miss your good humor, your willingness to participate  – especially when we were facing some real obstacles but we will miss most of all your personalities. Thank you for that. Thank you for all you have contributed to this organization.
I remember a Lake Placid tournament in 2004 with the VIPERS, and a younger Chewie was our goalie. I was trying to nap in my room but Chewie – who was in the adjacent room – would have none of that, and knocked incessantly on the wall while chuckling until such time I woke up, got dressed, and went out for a few jars with him. I had an awesome time that night, and really got to know him so much better.  Thanks Chewie! That is him in a nutshell, and I’ll never forget that. He is a terrific teammate, and I don’t think I ever saw him get rattled. The same goes for Jimmy Tubbs. JT is a stalwart who never left anything on the rink – he always gave you 100% and you never saw Tubby come unglued. Goals and assists didn’t matter. He played intense, and was one of the most honest players I’ve had the pleasure of sharing ice with. And he could hoist a beverage or three!
I want to wish you both well. I know you plan to relax on Sundays now. I hope you enjoy and find new meanings beyond Sunday night hockey. You deserve all the best. May you find it. Thanks for your friendship – I’ll never forget you guys. 
Stew
 
Big Thanks to Captain Stew’bing!!  Stew has confirmed his room at Becker B&B and will be down from Montreal for our local Outdoor Pond Hockey Tournament. See “Wally Ice Fest” info below-à Stew is a Free Agent and looking to Hook-up with anyone forming a team in the Muskie Division, or whatever works.

Fall 2016 Playoff Update Dec 18th

OTHC Members,
Playoff STANDINGS are Updated/ Posted Below->  All Games expected to be on time tonight.
Playoff UPDATE: The 3rd Points-Based round has one more Game(early Game for SteelHeads) to be completed. We have many close finishes in the middle of the pack, so the outcome of this last game could have implications on how the Squid and Loons will finish. Because the “Goals Allowed(GA)” becomes an important determining factor, it could change things if the Steelheads lose by 4 or more Goals.
 –
For Tonight’s schedule(below) you will see Two Options for the Teams playing in the 8:15 and 9:30pm games. 4th and 5th place depend on whether the Steelheads Win/Lose in the 6:00pm game.  The Blue Squid will be present for the 8:15 game and are prepared to wait if they must to play the Brewins at 9:30, as they earned the position to play the Lowest Seed. The Loons determine their own destiny and hope the chance to stay alive. Over-Time format will now shift in this Final Round(12/18 & 1/8) of play to a Sudden-Death format. Here is a good look at your Schedule for tonight:

Banquet / Awards 
 
No replies or interest shown… please bring your own Christmas Cheer… You get an award, and You get an award, … everyone gets an award for being awesome. In absence of our members voting, I have some of my own Awarding to do, that all will surely agree with:
 
 One Award that is an easy choice is Commissioner’s Appointment as IronmanTed Hosler, in his first season as a Captain he has kept the Steelheads swimming upstream. After picking up a broken team with 4 missing players, he managed to put all the pieces in place, in 2nd place for regular season…and dropping a few notches to 4th seed in Playoffs. While some of the team are out big game hunting and spawning around, #26 will rally the troops for a real challenge this week, in the face of elimination.
 
Honorable mention is a tie going to two Goalies- Jason Hoffman and Charlie-Chuck Ritchie. These guys helped get the Loons through a season with their regular Randy Heller. Not only that, but they back-up anyone else that can’t make it. Solid guys, they both can be counted on, to be at the rink Hours before the actual game.
 
“Goalie Who Always Shows Up” Guy
We all know that goalies and referees are a necessary evil in Beer League. Yes, goalies can be weird but it balances out. You put up with them being weird and they show up so you can play a weekly beer league game. In all seriousness, goalies put up with a lot of crap from players. Each game they likely see at least 4 breakaways, multiple 2 on 1’s, and countless giveaways to opposing snipers in the slot. Finding a goalie that always shows up and doesn’t threaten to kill every d-guy on the team each game is critical to becoming the ultimate beer league team. There is only 1 thing that’s more important than “Goalie Who Always Shows Up” Guy.
 
7th Man Award (Blue Squid)-In case you are unfamiliar, “great leadership qualities to his team, on and off the ice”    Daryl Speicher has been a big part of keeping the Squid alive. Playing through affliction, “Santa’s got the Gout” has been heard too often this season, so he hobbled into the locker room the last few weeks with tender, swollen feet. Then, was able to get the skates laced, only to step in front of a Clapper…taking it, where else? You guessed it, right on the “G” in his Grafs, or is that for the Gout? He is solid on the forecheck and gets in the way a lot…in a Good way, the Shot-blocking way.  Santa has a lot in his Lap, with busy schedule this time of year, but he’s the first one to type the “In” response back to Captain JK.
 
With the above announcements, I urge the Captains to follow suit and get back to me with their choices for “7th Man” on their teams. I will also ask that all members send me Votes for the following:
·        Lady Byng, most sportsmanlike=
·        Chuck Norris, best D=
·        Hatchell best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey=
·        Vezina, best G=
·        Calder, best R=
·        Rocket Richard, Top scorer=
·        Conn Smythe, MVP=
 
 
Tailgating / Locker Room Talk 
 
Well, maybe we should add one more to the above choices?
 
The “Always Brings Beer” Guy
Does anything need to be said about this guy? This guy is a cornerstone of the team. He loves hockey, he loves his team, and he shows his appreciation by bringing the adult league nectar of the gods…. Beer!  
 
Something was said, by ‘Danny Elbows’-    “Donated beer leftovers to the Brewins this week.  Some of these were in there.  Just sayin…”

“A few years ago, I began noticing many of my friends and family members giving up traditional soda for flavored sparkling water,” said Canadian Mike, OTHC member and part of the innovation team behind Truly Spiked & Sparkling. “I started playing around with alcoholic versions as a side project over a year ago, realizing there was a need for something clean, crisp and sparkling, like traditional sparkling water, but for times when you want to imbibe! After much experimentation, we created the recipe for Truly Spiked & Sparkling and knew we had something great – refreshing, with a hint of fruit, but doesn’t fill you up or break the calorie bank.”
 
 
Thank You,
OTHC Commissioner

Last Regular Season Week

OTHC Members,
Tonight is our last week of the Regular season. Looks like it is a very tight race in the middle of the pack…the Pollsters and Pundits have been known to be wrong before!  STANDINGS are Posted Below->  Next Sunday begins OTHC Playoffs. Since we are not yet 100% sure of the finishes, we’ll finalize the complete Schedule after tonight Results are confirmed. We do have enough to at least project what next Sunday’s Schedule will be(keeping it as it was originally listed). However, the remainder of the Schedule (beginning with 11/27) was only a Placeholder and will naturally, be very different than the original Schedule at the beginning of the season.
I checked in with Dave at-Triple S Gourmet to see how it went with the Food Truck (the only week I was not present). Unfortunately, it was not enough business for them to cover employees & costs. I appreciate our staunch regular supporters showing up and doing their best, but the Truck won’t be coming back anytime soon. Maybe we can talk about a Banquet for the last week of Play to make it interesting?
