Thanks for the Port (McNeill) in a storm

Our hockey team, The Oceanside Generals Peewee Rep team found itself stranded in Port McNeill

Dear editor,

Our hockey team, The Oceanside Generals Peewee Rep team found itself stranded in Port McNeill when the mudslides occurred early Sunday morning.

On behalf of our hockey team I would like to say thank you to the very kind people of Port McNeill.

We can’t say enough about how friendly and helpful everyone was to us.

At every turn there was someone to offer assistance from keeping us updated on the road situation to many offers of help with activities to keep our kids busy.

Thanks as well to the friendly staff at the Haida Way who were very patient with 16 hockey players running around their hotel for a day and-a-half.  We look forward to our next visit to Port McNeill some “not so rainy” weekend.

Dyann Goodfellow

Team Manager/Oceanside Minor Hockey Peewee Generals
