Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey’s 8th An­nual Golf Tour­na­ment, one of the only two ma­jor fundrais­ers for the club, took place on Au­gust 16th un­der cloudy skies at the Dufferin Heights Golf Club. Or­ga­niz­ers were a lit­tle un­happy with the re­sults as only ten teams played in the end and few peo­ple at­tended the din­ner and dance, held af­ter the tour­na­ment. “The turnout was dis­ap­point­ing but those who went had a good time. We’d like to thank all the busi­nesses who do­nated for hole spon­sor­ships and door prizes and the teams who took part,” said Emily John­ston, the vice-pres­i­dent of the league.

The hockey sea­son will be­gin with a cou­ple of free skates for young chil­dren who would like to try skat­ing. “Any­one in­ter­ested can come out on the ice and give it a try. Some peo­ple think if their child can’t skate then they can’t play hockey. But our coaches are there to teach the young ones how to skate,” ex­plained Emily. The free skates will take place at the Pat Burns Arena on Septem­ber 6th, 13th, and 20th, at 9:00 am each morn­ing, and will last fifty min­utes.

The hockey as­so­ci­a­tion is also in need of ref­er­ees and score­keep­ers. Any­one in­ter­ested in earn­ing a lit­tle ex­tra money as a ref­eree or score­keeper dur­ing the hockey sea­son, as long as they are 13 years old or older, is wel­come to con­tact the club for more de­tails. Those in­ter­ested must take a one­day course in Sher­brooke for which they are re­im­bursed af­ter work­ing a cer­tain num­ber of games (about 10).
