Hello FFM Families,
We regret to inform those students who had signed up to play in this year’s Richmond Hill Winter Carnival Hockey Tournament that we received word at 3:25 p.m. on Friday, January 10th, 2020 that the tournament has been cancelled. Please see the e-mail message content from the convener of the tournament below:
“I just received word from one of our YRDSB schools that their union steward informed them that with the increase in job escalation, any out of school competitions cannot occur.
Half the schools competing are YRDSB, so we will not have the opportunity to alter the schedule for the remaining schools.
With this in mind, the tournament is cancelled.
Thank you all for putting together teams, and making all the arrangements to get the kids to the arena. RH Winter Carnival appreciates your support of this great local community tournament.
Please do your best to let your students know as soon as you can. Fortunately only three schools are scheduled to play Monday. I’ll be at the arena just in case to let them know.
Thanks again for your support. See you at the Mill Pond Park for the Carnival.”
All monies/cheques sent in to cover the cost of the tournament will be returned to students on Monday, January 13, 2020. Thank you for having expressed interest in representing FFM’s Junior or Intermediate hockey teams!
