Hello Hockey Enthusiast!!
I had a meeting with CRPA and the contractors today to discuss the rink's availability and starting our season. Good News, we're REALLY close!! If anyone has ever built a house, today was sort of a "punch list" discussion. There are a few things that need to be done and we should be able to start our season. I am hoping those items will be completed before the week's end, but I can not put out an official schedule of practices until the CRPA gives us the official "ok" to use it. With that being said and IF all things go according to plan, here is a "tenative schedule" for the remainder of the week.
Wednesday 9/24/14 6:00pm-7:00pm Returning AHL players (all players that previously played in the AHL last season)
Wednesday 9/24/14 7:00pm-8:30pm Returning IHL players (all players that previously played in the IHL last season)

Thank you for everyone's patience. Obviously based on what I am told in the next couple days, this schedule may change and I certainly appreciate everyone's flexibility as we are taking these delays in stride and making the best of what we will have. Please be sure that you have your AAU number updated and registration complete before coming out to the rink. If you need to borrow equipment, please arrive at least 30-45 minutes prior to your scheduled practice time slot. This will be a little hectic and each piece of equipment will need to be signed out and accounted for.
