To all EMHA, EGHA families and supporters of minor sports in Selwyn. Please come to the Council Meeting THIS TUESDAY JULY 14 @ 730pm to show your support. Information is contained in the Email below from Steph:
Help Us Get Our Arena Opened On Time!!!
This year the Township of Selwyn has decided that the Ennismore Arena will not open until September 21st and will open Lakefield Arena on September 1st .
As a result EMHA and EGHA will be forced to hold tryouts and skill sessions in arenas outside of the Ennismore Community. The EMHA and EGHA represented by their presidents, Andrew Winslow and Stephanie Serra, are coming before Council to request that the Ennismore Arena be opened September 1st. as per usual, in order to hold our tryouts and skills sessions in our own Arena.
· Approximately 400 children play hockey for the Ennismore Eagles (typically EMHA registers 300 players, and EGHA 100 players)
· Last year the Lakefield Minor Hockey Association registered 150 players and the Lakefield Chiefs 24 players
· At the 2015 Scheduling Meeting in June:
o Ennismore requested 101 hours of ice for the month of September for both EMHA and EGHA
o Lakefield requested 30 hours of ice for the month of September for both LMHA and the Lakefield Chiefs
· Ennismore Arena is a larger facility and therefore costs more to operate than Lakefield Arena
If you would like to see the Ennismore Arena open September 1st – Please come and show your Councillors this is an issue that matters to Ennismore Eagles families! The more people we have in support the stronger our case will be.
