Saturday June 20 - HotDog Day at Wilson Park
Players and coaches were asked to be in uniform. Recommended car-pooling and pre-arranging a time-and specific spot for each team's players to meet - it proved to be crowded! Lots of family and friends joined in and went through 1500 hotdogs - not a record but that's a lot of wieners and buns! Thanks Canada Bread, Food Basics and Zehrs for helping with the refreshments.

This was a real wrap-up celebration. With the conclusion of this event, our season is over & done! Players who missed it should contact their team's coaches - and vice versa - to arrange pick-up/delivery of their trophy, photo package and trading cards. We do not have them as all were given to the team's coaching staff.
Have a great - safe - summer, and keep practising. We'll start taking "early-bird" registrations for 2016 in December of this year!
