Message from the Convenor, Raymond Parker:
I want to update you on this our Centenary season (2020-2021) and inform you of our plans for the biggest social night in our history.
Our President George Wilson and life member John Smyth have been working tirelessly for many months on the history of our wonderful club and we plan to publish by September ’21.
Our big celebration night will be the Men’s Centenary Dinner . It was to be on the 15th May ’21 at Clandeboye Lodge Hotel, Bangor. However with all the uncertainty of Covid 19 we felt it was much too risky and we have now confirmed SATURDAY 18TH SEPT 2021 at the same venue.
Although there are a number of points to finalise I wanted to give you early notice to ensure you put the date in your diary – a night not to be missed! Perhaps think about making up a table of friends or a particular team that you played on etc? Of course our plans are based on life being more normal by September, but let’s be positive and look forward to a very special evening.
We have collected a lot of e-mail addresses over recent months of members from over the years, we are particularly keen to see people who we haven’t seen for some time.
Do let me know by return (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you plan to attend, just to give us a feel for numbers and if you have any thoughts re forming a table etc. Feel free to call me any time on 07815 041409 if you have any queries.
Our Centenary season will be memorable for all the wrong reasons with all teams playing very few games , but it’s important we celebrate this great milestone and do so in style!
I look forward to hearing from you and I will be in touch with more details in the coming months.
COVID-19 Update (2nd Sept’20): BMHC Youth 2020 / 2021
Due to current restrictions we are down a significant amount of pitch time, unfortunately we will not have access to the BGS pitch and Aurora is closing earlier than normal in the evening. There are also restrictions on numbers attending sessions.
As a result we are proposing to postpone the start of U9 (P3,4,5) and U11 (P6&7) groups until the beginning of October, by which stage BGS will hopefully be available. We would propose to run this group for an extra month in 2021 to make up for the delayed start. U9 and U11 to continue on a Tuesday evening – venue and time to be confirmed.
We are aiming to commence U13 (Y8&9) and U15 (Y10&11) groups in September as follows:
- U13 Aurora Tuesdays 6pm to 7pm beginning 15th September
- U15 Aurora Thursdays 6pm to 7pm beginning 10th September
Unfortunately due to current restrictions in place and reduced pitch availability we may have to restrict numbers, therefore we require pre registration via Spond (link on Junior Hockey page) in order to gauge numbers, confirm places and finalise details.
