APRIL 2013

The hockey board met on April 4, at Brewster’s.


The annual league meeting will be held at the Ground Round, in Tomah, on April
10. Jim Brown will be this year’s recipient for the President’s Award. This award
is given to an individual to recognize their effort and dedication to the hockey


A laptop for the finance committee was purchased from Ironsides for a cost of


We received a check from Koenecke Ford for the Drive for Your Community event.
The amount we received was $4,700! A big thank you to Koenecke Ford, Joe
Kozol, and all the Polar parents who helped to organize this fantastic fundraiser.

The parks and recreation committee will be meeting on April 16 to choose the
organizations that will have the Game Day concessions.


Most of the equipment and uniforms has been collected. Uniforms are still
needed from some of the Squirts and Bantams. An estimate for 20 sets of new
jerseys is approximately $1,100. Various estimates for many projects are being
gotten at this time in order to prioritize projects and to determine a budget for
next year.


Erlene Ostrander has agreed to be the person in charge of ordering supplies for
the concession. Thank you, Erlene, for volunteering for this position.


Teardown at the rink went very well. A huge thank you to Andy, Jim, and the
crew of volunteers who made this possible. The defibulator at the rink will have
the battery and pads replaced by next season. We are looking into the possibility
of having an electronic sign, to replace the current sign board. We may be able to
share the sign expense with the city and the Jaycees.

Lenny Mayer does not think that the furnace needs to be replaced at this time,
but it will need some repair.


The WAHA annual meeting will be held May 18, in Stevens Point. Any association
members may attend this meeting.

Reminder that our annual meeting is April 12, 6:30, at the VFW. Please bring your
suggestions and questions.


A motion hearing was held on March 20. Both motions by the District Attorney
were accepted and both motions by the defense attorney were denied. The trial
is still scheduled for August, unless a settlement/agreement is reached first.


This was Sandi’s last meeting, as she is not running for re-election. Sandi has
been the board secretary for several years. We sincerely thank you, Sandi, for all
the work, time, and dedication you have given to our hockey association.
