Port McNeill Presents Hockey Awards

A roundup of hockey awards presented by Port McNeill

The  Port McNeill Minor Hockey Club held its annual general meeting and awards night.

The club’s bank balance improved significantly following sizable deficits in the previous three years. This positive outlook is due in large part to fund-raising efforts in November as well as a successful application for a $16,000 Gaming Grant.

As a result of these added revenues the association is in the position to reduce its registration fees next season and replenish its funding reserve to a comfortable position for the future.

The club ran the Girls’ Intro to Hockey Program for a third winter and had over 20 young ladies participating.

Participation this year was large enough to have an officially-rostered team at the Peewee level, which allowed the girls to participate in the  Port McNeill and Port Hardy tournaments as well as a tourney in Powell River and some exhibition games.

The club hosted successful tournaments at all levels but only had a full complement of 8 teams for one event. Regardless we had lots of compliments from those teams who participated.

The association’s 4th annual hockey swap went so well that its inventory of gear is way down. Everyone is encouraged to pay it forward and contact me to donate any surplus gear you may have in your possession. This fall’s swap will occur during the Fall Fair on September 12-13th.

For the upcoming season the club will be moving the registration deadline ahead to the beginning of the summer, instead of mid September.

This will allow more time to get teams and coaches organized prior to the season beginning in the fall. To reward those who get their registrations in before the new deadline, Lou Lemire will be hosting  a two-day FREE clinics for all registered PMMHC players. The clinics will be held on July 11th and 12th.

Registration packages will be distributed in early May and will be due by the end of June along with a first installment of $65. Remainder of fees can be paid via post-dated cheques dated for the fall.
