Christmas Tourney another Success
Submitted By Gino Patterson Admin on Tue 01 10, 17
Thank you so much to Niagara on the Lake and the Volunteers for a great tourney.

I would like to start off by saying thank you to all the volunteers and Sponsors who made our recent Christmas tournament a huge success.
Special thanks goes out to
Meridian Credit Union who graciously donated a check to help pay for the welcome bags and trophies/medals for the kids.
Phil from Phil's Valu-mart who supplied all the snacks and bags for our Last years touneys and this years also.  
Bryce Ivanchuk who came through with burgers, buns, prizes and raffle items.
Roger and Laurie Armstrong who helped print off all the schedules and still being there to help NOTL Hockey.
I would also like to acknowledge our major sponsors who have always stepped up and helped Niagara on the Lake Minor Hockey
Great Wolf Lodge, Meridian Credit Union, Niagara Trailers, SandTrap, Rankin Construction, Olde Towne Building Company, Simpson's Pharmasave, Trius Winery, Bryce Ivanchuk and Penner Lumber. Also this year, a special thank you to Zenon Konopka who donated Gift packs and raffle items for the tourney.
Of course the town of Niagara on the Lake and all the businesses for the donations year after year. You will be pleased to know all of you got mentioned in our handouts to the teams and the parents.
These major sponsors have helped us tremendously over the past 6 years and have always been there for us.
I am pleased to say the 2016/2017 NOTL Christmas tourney was another huge success. We had over 32 teams participating.  We saw 2 NOTL teams make the final Peewee AE and Bantam BB. Awesome Job. Almost every team has expressed interest in coming back which is great news.
A Special thank you to all of you who helped make it a great Tournament. Thanks to our Referees for a great breakfast, the arena staff for taking care of everything, Braden Rawsthorne, Alina Patterson and Jaden Patterson for helping run everything. Of course all the volunteers, Joe Zambito and Kenny Ostromecki for staying all day to barbecue even when they didn't have to.  Of course Tim Penner for all the work in organizing the refs.
I have to say it was extremely fun and the arena staff and volunteers made it happen.
We have a great town and I can't thank everyone enough for what they do for our Hockey organization and our kids of Niagara on the Lake.
Our March Tourney is almost full with over 42 teams and we are currently looking for donations to our prize table if you would like to sponsor our March Tournament. All sponsors will be given a place on our power point invitation that goes out to each parent and coach who participate. You also get a spot on our area map and your GPS info that goes to all teams and the families.
Please contact Gino Patterson at [email protected] and I will send you a sponsorship letter with all the info.
We will be posting the Volunteer Schedule in the next few weeks. Please make sure to check the NOTL Minor Hockey Home page.
Thank you again on behalf of the entire NOTL Hockey Board.
