CELEBRATING 25 YEARS!!!
The EIHL since 1992
A few items for you all to read.
- First of all – the EIHL season – Season 48 will start in late March or early April. More details to come soon, but it will be a 7-8 game season and we will have 4 teams.
- The season may seep into early July – but too early to tell. Will aim to end it in June.
- Please review the attached draft list – if players you know want to play or can’t play please advise us as soon as you can. We want to make this a comprehensive list that is accurate. You can contact me or leave a message on the message board. This list will be finalized by the end of February. Also indicate if you are a part-time player. Those who are too part-time may be removed.
- Entry fee will be $10 flat for all players – $20 dollars for captains and those picked in the first 2 rounds. Goalies will be free.
- Key Dates to consider
- EIHL Draft list to be finalized by March 5th
- EIHL Banquet to occur – mid-late March @ Royal India
- EIHL Season to start March 26th or April 3rd
- The EIHL banquet – date has not been confirmed – but will occur in early March – Current dates being considered – March 10, 11, 17, 18 or 24, 25. I will post a poll in the coming days once I confirm a few things.
- It will be held at our same location and we will try to stick close to the same price – $45 dollars for drinkers and $25 for non-drinkers. We will also hold a 50/50 draw this year.
- Additional improvements will be made to the new EIHL courts – Harpreet has secured benches for the league and in addition he has secured storage (yes we will not have to lug nets around), they are also considering installing a water fountain for us. Great work again.
- If the EIHL players have feedback on rule changes or other things we should do please let us know and we can try to incorporate. The time is now to speak up.
- Potential Game dates currently are noted below. These are subject to change and I will be adding a Friday to ensure that we have an 8 game season. There may also be a double header weekend if required. If there are dates that do not work due to major attendance by EIHL members (wedding etc.) please let me know ASAP. I will not change it for other hockey games.
