First, I’d like to say Happy 40th, Lakers!

It’s been an interesting year so far. From being in the stands last season as a father watching his son playing the game we all love, to becoming president of the association.

Wow! I’ve got to tell you that without the dedication from all executive members, along with the same dedication from coaches and mangers, this undertaking could have been a lot harder and more stressful. Thank you.

So, it’s Jamboree time again – the 40th, in fact. Thanks, Jodi Hieta.

I hope to see the community in the stands enjoying the Lake Cowichan youth playing the game you have so strongly supported through their numerous fund-raisers. Your generous donations provide players the chance to partake in tournaments and other activities throughout the season.

That goes the same to you, Bruce Ingram and Keith Nelson. The Bantam and Midget teams thank you for sponsoring them this season. What you give can make the differences of going to a tournament or not. As a hockey father, these tourneys make for some life-long memories, whether the team wins or loses.

So, to the Cowichan Lake community:

Come on out and catch a few games, on us.

There are games from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, January 22. Don’t miss the Skills Competition, as it is always entertaining when we’ve got the Initiation players out on the ice with the young-adult Midget players, all vying for the bragging rights and the trophy to hold until next year.

Every player in the association is on the ice at once, so it makes for some great pictures. The atmosphere is really something to see. As our association is one of the smallest on the island, it really shows the support and spirit of the Lake.

Hope to see you there, and enjoy the day.
