Congratulations to the Caribous. They
defeated the Whalers 6-2 in a game that was 1-1 after the first period.
The Brampton Newfoundlanders & Friends Hockey Association is an old timers
hockey league operating since 1982.
Games are played on Sunday's
11:00 or 12:00 at the Chris Gibson Recreation Center.
Players interested in getting into our league should be on the "Spare List". This gives us an opportunity to evaluate players and keep the league
competitive. Most new players are invited into the league as replacements for someone.
If you want on the list and born
1974 or before can call Steve @ 647-223-2364 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our New League Council
Thirty-six years the League has been administered by the President and 4
Team Representatives. Our rules spelled out what was expected and for
the most part we complied.
#2. It is the duty of each team Rep to administer all league decisions
and be responsible for his team.
#3. It is the duty of the league President to promote healthy
competition with-in the league, and impartially enforce league rules.
We made it this far, so something has been working but we are all
getting older. Ideas and the game are changing. People get set in their
ways. Maybe it’s time to change things up a bit. To spread the
responsibilities and the initiative to more than a small group.
I have invited several members (listed below) to participate in the end
of year review of our rules and policies with myself and the four team
Reps. This inaugural League Council will bring more transparency and
give the general membership more participation and influence into our
league decisions. They will have the opportunity to set agenda items and
bring new ideas and changes to the table. To have a say in how your
league is run. The plan is to have 2 or 3 meetings a year to discuss
business, rules and policies. Getting four together for a meeting was
sometimes difficult so one of the first items will have to be setting a
quorum as to how many need to be at the meeting to pass any resolutions.
I envision this as being a dynamic council, with members dropping off
the list or new ones coming aboard. There are people who probably should
be on this list and aren’t. I just had to keep it a manageable size. The
council will have to decide how large it needs to be. Anyone can ask an
issue be put on the agenda of things to be discussed. Just send me an
email. If it is appropriate, I will add it. I imagine the first meeting
will end up with more questions than answers, but we need to start
Your ideas, opinions and criticisms are welcome but “Problems are easy
to find. We are looking for solutions.”
