Sperry hockey resumes in Charlottesville when the Main Street Arena rink re-opens August 20, 2013. Sperry will be one of the first groups to christen the new ice! We have 2 90-minute sessions the first week. Please look for signup messages to go out when the games approach. Meanwhile, please mark your calendar for these two games:
- Tuesday, Aug 20, 7:45 – 9:15 PM (90 minutes).
Cost is just $20/player for the extended session. Insane!!!
- Thursday, Aug 22, 7:15 – 8:45 PM (90 minutes).
Same cost as above.
Sperry Hockey Resumes Its Weekly Thursday Slot
In addition, our regular weekly slot will be 9:30 PM on Thursdays, starting on Thursday, August 29, 2013. We had trouble filling the Thursday night slot last year, but this is 15 minutes earlier than last year, so we hope you’ll be able to play. The good news is that we have a full hour of ice time, instead of being shoehorned into a 45-minute slot like last season. The hourly ice rental fee has risen 10 percent, so the cost is likely going to be $15 for our regular Thursday night game.
In other news, Bob DeCusati has moved to Richmond, so he won’t be helping to collect money at the Sperry games any longer. Bob, thanks for all your help the last few years!
Finally, there are some changes in store on the Sperry web site (www.sperryhockey.org). We hope to gradually transition to a more automated signup system and allow people to pay in advance by PayPal or credit card. Contact Joe Nasevich (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any suggestions or comments.
Enjoy the rest of the summer, and we’ll see you on the ice in August!
