Over the years the Easter Weekend Hockey Tournament has been spending more and more money to be able to rent the ice and arena facilities in Geraldton.
In 2014, Daniel Letourneau (Volunteer/Coach/Geraldton Minor Hockey Alumni) wrote the Municipality of Greenstone asking to have a reduced fee (not free) for the weekend that generates business in all aspects of local economy and is a local fundraiser for the Geraldton Minor Hockey League. This request was DENIED by Council.
Due to this, the 2015 Easter Weekend Hockey Tournament had a LOSS of $110.00, even after one of the teams (Tuna Fish Sandwiches) donated their winnings back to the cause. Now that is what sportsmanship looks like!
It is time to collectively speak out and advise our Municipality to give back to a community is serves by being a team player and helping their children enjoy sports, recreation and a healthy lifestyle of hockey. If assisting with a fee reduction is the least they can do, they should!
