The 2nd Annual Michael Lemieux Hockey Tournament & Fundraiser will be Saturday, October 25th at the 3 local rinks. It has been over a year since Michael's accident, and the good news is that he is expected to leave Spaulding Rehab Center in Boston and return to Portland in the next couple of weeks. I hope he will be able to stop in to each arena.
The Oldtimers (*50 & over) will be held at Family Ice in Falmouth starting at 12:20pm.
The Men's League (*50 & under) will be at Travis Roy Arena at NYA starting at 5:30pm.
The High School players (must be boys in high school) will be at PIA starting at 4:10pm.
(*Note: The Oldtimers and Men's League players may play up or down if within a few years. Please note on your check with which group you wish to play.)
Each tournament will have a maximum number of 48 players with the same 3 - 30 minute game round-robin format. The cost to play will be $50 each for the Oldtimers & Men's League, and $25 each for High School players. This will net us a quick $6,000 for the The Michael Lemieux Supplemental Needs Trust.
To participate, please make your check payable to: The Michael Lemieux S.N.T. and mail to Gordon Wakelin, 180 Pleasant St. Yarmouth, ME 04096. Again, the first 48 checks received in each of the 3 divisions are in. You may certainly write your check for an amount larger than $50 or $25. All donations are appreciated. [Please write your email address on your check.]
Portland Ice Arena, Family Ice Center and Travis Roy Arena have each donated the ice time, and the referees will do their thing at no charge. Thank you in advance to each of you.
If you hope to play, please send in your check quickly. I'm certain this year's events will be sold out.
WHEN: November 15, 2014 - 9:00 AM
WHERE: Falmouth Middle School
74 Woodville Road, Falmouth, ME
Race-day = $25.00
Pre-Register = $12.00
The Falmouth Ice Hockey Association has a long tradition of exciting, high caliber, and competitive teams. The fees that each family pays covers a portion of the program’s costs, however, over 1,800 hours of volunteer time is required each year to reduce family costs while running this top-flight program. In order to meet that demand, the FIHA policy requires each family to volunteer 15 hours of time per registered player during the season.
Key information and details on opportunities are outlined in the document below.
