SEASON REPLAY

The IceCats would like to acknowledge the recent passing of John Cotugno.  John graciously volunteered countless hours of Coaching and serving on the Executive for several years.  Two weeks before John passed I informed him that our IceCats would have a helmet sticker in his name and he was truly touched by the gesture.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to John’s family and friends.  He will always be an IceCat. 

 

On a positive note our organization was granted a name change to NEW TECUMSETH ICECATS.  The logo and colours will not change.  This has been a very long, frustrating process but I am optimistic that our identity on where we play is more direct and the name change attracts new players. 

 

Our IceCats Day in December was a huge success.  A big thank-you to Jenny Frans and the volunteers who put all of this together.  Several visiting teams that I spoke with said things like “our organization would never do anything like this.”  The team themed baskets were awesome and it made for a very memorable day for many IceCats and their families.

MAJOR PENALTY

 

The Town informed us that the Beeton Arena is in need of major repairs and will not be used until the building is deemed safe.  This being said the Town has allocated specific ice slots to our teams this season and some ice spots may need to be rotated through amongst our teams.  Teams will not get their first choice of ice times.  It is very likely we may need to get more hours of ice from a different facility. 

 

OVERTIME

The New Tecumseth IceCats need you!!!  We are looking for volunteers to help us grow and fill various roles within our Association.  My tenure as VP is coming to a close and it is imperative a new Executive Board is put in place.  We need people in place for both voting and non-voting positions.  One or two people simply cannot run this Association.   If you have any interest in volunteering please message fredemslie@sympatico.ca immediately.

Our AGM will be Tuesday September 19th at 8:00 pm.  Details will follow.
