News and Announcements
Dear Association members,
As you have undoubtedly heard already, our friends and partners at The Hockey Shop in Surrey suffered a blow this past Friday when the store caught fire and sustained major damage to their in-store inventory: http://bit.ly/2xJmvBM
The important thing to note is that no one was injured in the blaze and that they are planning on reopening ‘bigger, better and stronger’.
While the store will remain closed for the months to come, their Team Sales Department remains dedicated to service our Association’s needs. Many of the items that are part of our team order list were stored off site or requiring shipment from third parties anyway, and their decorators are standing by to apply our logos on pieces as needed. I spoke to Brad and he assures me that he and his team sales staff are commited to ensuring that we are taken care of.
Orders may not be completed in the same extraordinary turnaround time of 4 days that we have come to expect and love from the Hockey Shop, but we would still have our orders completed within a reasonal 1 1/2 to 2 week window, which is on par with the industry norm. For my team, we will continue to go through Brad. However, it is understandable and acceptable, under the current circumstance, that your team would choose to seek out a temporary alternate for your apparel needs this season. If that is the case, team managers – please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and copy Tracey Smart (email@example.com) and we can arrange offline.
Check out our tourney website! Come down and support your Panthers in our first home tournament of the season.
Steph will be holding a small registration night on Tuesday, August 29th between 7:30 and 8:30pm in the arena lobby. If you know anyone who might be interested in a last chance to register, please pass this message along. She won’t have a photocopier on hand so she asks that everyone bring their documents pre-copied. Thanks,
The countdown to the season is on! Camps have started this week and will continue into next week, and then the start to the season is just around the corner. Times for all camps as well as tryout times are posted on the website calendar.
If you are trying out for the rep teams, you should have been contacted by your divisional coordinator. If you have not been contacted, please contact your coordinator directly as per emails below. Please note that this year the Bantam & Midget skills sessions are no longer a part of the tryout process. Your coordinators will also be sending you a complete rep tryout document later this week that should answer any questions you may have. However, if you have further questions, please get in touch with Sharron Tulk, firstname.lastname@example.org directly.
The season for the C teams will begin the week of September 4th. Schedules should be coming your way by August 28th, so please be prepared to go on the ice anytime from Tuesday onward.
Initiation ice times will begin the week of the 18th, and schedules will be sent out by your initiation coordinator.
Last but not least, if you are looking to get geared up, our friends at The Hockey Shop in Surrey are offering the PMAHA membership $50 off your next purchase of $250 or more. To redeem your coupon, go to www.thehockeyshop.com/pmaha.
Thanks everyone, and enjoy the rest of your summer!
