2009 Fourth Annual Hamden/West Haven Hockey Alumni Game
The 2009 Hamden/West Haven Alumni Hockey Game will be played at the Bennett Rink – West Haven - on Friday night February 20th from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM
We are working on all of the details right now and you will be seeing posters go up in a few weeks. This year we have opened up play to anyone that played for either team that is now 25 years old or older. The format for play will be similar to what it was last year. We are focused on getting everyone as much ice time as possible (or as little as possible for we older players).
We are also forming a Hamden/West Haven Hockey Alumni Club which will be open to all players that have played for West Haven or Hamden through the years. The purpose of this club will be to promote the sport of hockey and to perpetuate the raising of funds by our alumni group for causes such as Parkinson's disease and Cancer Research. The yearly fee will be $25.00 and most of this fee will go to our selected charities with some going to expenses related to running this club. We are in the process of setting up a web page and will be posting pictures, video etc. once we get the site up and going. The web site will be another way for us to communicate information regarding our annual event.
We have held the price at $50.00 for players again for this year’s Alumni Game. We would like to have more people playing and urge you all to seek teammates that may be interested. We are pre-registering players again this year to avoid the jam of players on arrival at the rink. Players should arrive no later than 6PM game night. Please mail checks to my address listed below. Checks should be made out to HHS Hockey Alumni, LLC. You can send a request for a jersey number with you check and we will consider that on a first come first served basis. Players are invited to a get together after game at a location to be announced at a later date.
Please stay tuned for more information. In the mean time please start talking this up. We have opened it up to 25 year olds this year. There are a lot of guys that have played that did not leave us email addresses. If you know of anyone that played or that would like to play and you have their email address please pass it on to either Kyle Bensen or me as we will be the primary contacts in West Haven and Hamden respectively. We will be calling anyone who we can't reach by email but email is preferred.
