The Week Ahead
I need volunteers for all games for the penalty box this weekend. Also, I need 1 volunteer for each game to sit in the box as a Sabre representative.
AHF provides a scorer, however each team must provide a team representative in the score box to assist. Let me know if you plan to help out so we aren't scrambling before the games.
I need each family to provide me with jersey, sock and shell sizes. I have a sizing chart that I will bring with me this weekend if you are unsure of what size to order your player. I would like to collect all sizes before the end of the weekend.
(Greg this is for 12U)
As most of you know I have nixed the Nashville idea for this year. This particular tournament is in Clarksville which is actually an hour past Nashville so I didn't see a need to drive 11.5 hours or spend money to fly and most likely sit in a Hotel and at a rink in the middle of nowhere TN when we can do that anywhere. If the remaining twelve families come back and tell me they absolutely want to do this tournament then I will reverse course.
So...where does that put us? Frankly this is turning into way too much of a hassle so at this point I am inclined to shitcan the March Tournament idea in it's entirety but I will give it one more go with input from you all.
As I see it, here are our options (please give me your opinion)...
1) No tournament
2) Buffalo outdoors (A or AA)
3) Do the Hershey AA but currently only team registered is one of the Montgomery AA teams (don't know which one).
4) Register for the AA tournament at Iceworks in Philly. (have no idea if they have enough teams or who would be there)
St. Patricks Day Tournament
I do not believe that Hershey is an option for St. Pattys day any longer. Currently only have 1 team registered at 12U AA (Montgomery). Will be looking elsewhere and will try to nail something down soon so you all can plan accordingly. If this change affects you desire to play/travel, let me know ASAP so I can add to the roster. If I can't come up with anything by next weekend, we will forgo the March tournament.
Hotel link again
Heard from a couple people. Having trouble finding the link. I'll resend now.

Hotel link for 2/11/23
I booked a hotel for the team on February 11th at the same hotel we stayed at last time we were at Ice Line. Fairfield Inn Philadelphia West Chester/Exton for 109 USD per night. While you are not obligated to stay there I wanted to make sure I gave everyone the link. We have 2 games on the 12th and 9:15 being the first game so an early start for sure. Our family plans to leave Laurel game on Saturday and head to PA. We can plan a fun activity to do Saturday if anyone wants. I promise I will stop sending so many emails, eventually!
Hello and Happy Thanksgiving! Below is the dropbox link for pictures Emma and I have taken this season. I recommend downloading them from dropbox vs saving/screenshotting from your phone.

Last call- if you want to let Jesse know the size of shell, jersey and socks this is last call. If he doesn’t hear from you he will make his best guesstimate.
