Another season has been completed.  We continued with the practice of scheduling all of our games at Gateway and East St Paul.  Terry Sawchuk and River East were used strictly as practice facilities except for a handful of playoff games that were scheduled there in March.  Garson ice is used strictly for practice time as well.  This continues to work well for everyone involved.

There was a change this season regarding allocating game ice for the female AA program.  As with the male program, we were required to provide game ice for the entire season.  In the direct entry program, game ice allocation is broken down between two halves; October to December and January to February.

Novice aged female games as well as our house league programs continued with the practice of using split ice.  Since this is the second season involving this process, it has been a little easier when it comes to scheduling however it does remain time consuming.

Exemption requests remain an issue with some teams making multiple wishes.  The requests impact both the game and practice scheduling. 

We had an extremely busy playoff schedule as we hosted 5 divisions which required a lot of ice and some creative scheduling.  We were fortunate that additional ice became available at East St. Paul arena for the playoffs.  The additional ice was invaluable in allowing us to fulfill our requirements.  Ties in playoff games remain an issue although Hockey Winnipeg did make a slight change going to a four on four format.  Regardless, it remains my opinion that no playoff games ending in a tie be rescheduled.  There are many ways a winner can be declared in a tie game and they must be decided on the day they are scheduled.

I would like to thank the following who volunteered as convenors for the playoffs.  They spent many hours at the arenas making sure the playoffs ran smoothly: Keith McLennan, Grant McLennan, Brent McIntyre and Lisa Schick.

In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the REMHA board members for their assistance and cooperation.  In addition, thanks to Sherri Quesnel from Gateway and Cory Kulchycki for scheduling the practice times.  Brent Wilkinson, VP East League, who helped out with the East League game schedules and  John Delacruz VP House League for his assistance and input into house league games.  Last but not least, Nancy Plustwa from East St. Paul.

Have a safe summer.
