We would like to recognize one of our local gals and express our thanks for her part in organizing league hockey in Alberta. For the past 12 years, Jodi Christensen has been serving in an important position with CAHL (Central Alberta Hockey League). Jodi’s official title is league/web administrator but her duties are many fold. She organizes the game schedules, design web displays, manages the data entry staff and assists the league governors. This league has experienced a 40% growth over the last few seasons and extends from Rocky Mountain House in the north, to the US border in the south- from the Crowsnest Pass in the west to the Saskatchewan border in the east. This huge geographic area includes 450 teams from novice to midget age players. This year Jodi was able to enlist the help of daughter Jennaya to assist in the initial stages of her work. Great job Jodi!
