To those that attended the AGM on Feb 19, thank you for sharing your comments and concerns during the information session that evening. A lot of questions and concerns were raised and where possible, answers were provided. For those that were not present, members of Simcoe Minor Hockey and Port Dover Minor Hockey were at our meeting to assist in providing answers and in-sight into the Amalgamation Proposal.
See Rest of Article.
Their assistance was greatly appreciated. Since this meeting, some notable effort has been put towards the attached communication memo, signed on behalf of all three (3) associations to encapsulate the concerns raised and to provide a written response on key matters of concern.
There has been lots of 'speculation' and we felt it vital to be clear on how this proposal changes or (perhaps more importantly) does not change the way in which hockey operates in Waterford.
The attached memo contains information that is intended to improve everyone's understanding of the proposal so that you have a clearer understanding of what you are voting on, on Monday February 25. For those that were present, you met some key individuals who work hard at delivering great hockey programs for ALL hockey players.
The proposal allows for an elevation of the game in Norfolk while preserving the foundations of Local Hockey operations. Every child enters the ice though a door and over their life of hockey, many doors will open and close. This proposal presents 'another door'; but not at the price of closing a door. We trust you will find the memo informative and clear. If you have any questions, toss them out and we will do our best to answer them. Hope to see all on Monday, February 25 at 7:30pm.
