2018 Castleton Cup Pond Hockey Tournament Schedule
Tomorrow looks like it’s going to a great day for the tournament. Please be at the fields a minimum of 15 minutes before your schedule time. This is meant to be a fun day for all please be respectful of everyone involved. We also ask that you maintain a safe distance from the zamboni when it is in operation.
DUE TO THE UNFAVOURABLE WEATHER FORECAST THE TOURNAMENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO SATURDAY FEBRUARY 17.
Deadline fo registration is Monday, February 12 at 6:00 p.m. NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.
The weather is looking favourable for our annual Pond Hockey tournament scheduled for Monday, February 19, with great news. A second rink has been installed that has allowed organizers to offer a 19 and over division. Same rules apply. Contact either Jeff or Stacy to register (information below)
The tournament will run if weather conditions permit
Once again the rink is closed due to warm weather conditions. STAY OFF THE ICE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. We understand a free activity is attractive but if the ice is used before it has fully frozen again you are only making more work for our volunteers. No one is paid to make the rink usable, this is entirely undertaken by a volunteers. It has also been brought to my attention that certain users aren’t cleaning up after themselves when they are done skating. Our volunteers are putting in hours at night or early in the morning before they start work, they don’t have time to be cleaning up after disrespectful individuals. If you bring something in with you TAKE IT WITH YOU. Sadly if this situation is not rectified the rink will cease to exist.
Plans are being made to host a Pond Hockey tournament, complete with the Castleton Cup. Our tentative date is Monday, February 19, Family Day but Mother Nature will ultimately decide if this event will happen. The tournament will be open to players 18 and under. Updates and details will be posted here
The recent warm spell with rain has made the ice surface unstable. Ice has formed over pockets of water. Please stay off until further notice
A couple of reminders….final registration for baseball and soccer will be held Sunday March 13 from 10 – noon. Soccer jerseys are being handed out to registrants, be sure to get yours. Find necessary forms here
There will be no volleyball, yoga or floor hockey next week due to March Break. Have a great week with your children and stay safe.
There will be no floor hockey tonight due to an event at the school. Yoga continues at the town hall, 7:00 sharp, $10 per class
Favourable weather and dedicated volunteers have gotten the ice ready for use ahead of schedule. Please be aware that there are some spots where the ice is a bit thin but work will continue to improve the surface. We encourage cooperative use of the surface AND we ask that if you turn the lights on, you turn them off when you leave. Hydro is stupid expensive to leave the lights on all night.
The Sports Club assumes no responsibility for injuries due to the use of the rink
Work has begun at the fields on the ice rink. The weather is looking favourable and Jeff is hopeful it will be ready to use soon. Check here or the Facebook page to see when the rink open and ready to be used. Please do not use the rink until it is deemed ready.
