Dear Chaminade Hockey Families,
We hope you have enjoyed your summer and are ready for school to start in just a couple of weeks. As the first day of school approaches, so does the hockey season and what better way to start the season than with a celebration of 50 Years of Chaminade Hockey!
We are asking that all hockey families attend or volunteer for our 50th Anniversary celebration this Tuesday, August 7th at 7:00 PM in the Skip Auditorium at Chaminade. We will revisit our history and talk about the future as we celebrate the tradition of Chaminade Hockey. All current players are welcomed at no-charge as we would like as big of a turnout as possible for our honored guests.
As you probably know, we are retiring the numbers of our Chaminade Hockey Alumni that made it to the National Hockey League. This will include Chris Butler, Chris Wideman, Ben Bishop, Yan Stastny and Paul Stastny. Following the number retirement presentation, the Blues Andy Strickland will moderate a panel discussion with Butler, Wideman, Bishop and two other Chaminade alumni Connor Dunlop and Neil Komadoski who both went on the play for the U.S. National Development program and Notre Dame before their professional careers. Neil has been a scout with the Vancouver Canucks for the last 6 years as well and has a lot of insight about where the game is today. With this unique opportunity, the audience will be encouraged to ask questions of their own to further their knowledge of the game and the journey these gentlemen took to get there.
Following the presentation, there will be a reception just outside the auditorium with beer, wine, soda and water for our guests. We truly hope you attend this once in a lifetime event with your sons and make an evening out of it. Hope to see you there!
