McNeill hockey sign-up deadline today

PORT McNEILL - Minor hockey registration, gear swap takes place Saturday at Chilton Regional Arena

Young hockey hopefuls have their final chance today to register to play in the Port McNeill Minor Hockey 2011-12 season before a $50 late fee kicks in.

Registration will be held at Chilton Regional Arena from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, part of a larger event that includes the association’s second annual hockey gear swap and hockey gear cleaning by Tufts Fresh Gear, which brought its mobile van to provide ozone cleaning of pads and gloves.

Families who picked up registration forms earlier may drop the completed entries at the arena to avoid the late penalty. Forms will also be available to pick up and fill out at the arena.

Tufts will provide gear cleaning for $25 for a full set of player gear and $35 for goalie gear.
