Ceebees focus on fundraising
Team holds first golf event; Crocker will be back as head coach
Supporters of the Conception Bay North CeeBee Stars held their first annual golf fundraiser June 23 at the Pitcher’s Pond Golf Course in Whiteway.
Supporters of the CeeBees had the opportunity to hit the links with some of their favourite players, like Matthew Thomey, Ryan Delaney, Keith Delaney, Daniel and Chris Sparkes, Mark Tobin and Kyle Doucet, in aid of the club as it prepares to enter its season in the Newfoundland Senior Hockey League.
It may come as no surprise that the CeeBees would put off a day of golf in support of the club. It is a well-known fact that hockey players enjoy hitting the links once the final buzzer has sounded.
The club drew in 16 teams of four for the event, which was two teams under the capacity of 18. The cost to register was $400 per team.
Peter George is the assistant coach with the CeeBees. He said the event went great.
“We had 16 teams show up for our first annual golf tournament, so it was very successful,” said George.
Corey Crocker (background) has confirmed he will return for a second season as head coach of the Conception Bay North CeeBee Stars. He is shown here on the bench during a February 2012 Newfoundland Senior Hockey League game with team executive/assistant coach Peter George.
