Good Deeds Cup – Vote Now!

Its time to vote in the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup! We need to support the South Winnipeg Kings Peewee A2 Gold team.  They are Manitoba’s Regional Winner and need to get into the top 3 for a chance at winning the Good Deeds Cup and $100,000 for their cause of choice.  Here is more information on their efforts:

The SW Kings Peewee A2 Gold team has fundraised almost $8000 for Reese Ketler who was injured while playing a game for the St. Vital Jr. Victorias of the MMJHL.  They submitted a video of their feat to the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup and have reached the Regional Finals and are chasing a spot in the top 3 where the winner receives $100,000!  If they win they will be donating the money to Reese and his family to help further support his transition into his new reality. 

We need YOU and everyone you know to view their video to help propel them to the top.  Follow the link below, scroll down to their video and take 52 seconds to support their team. (watching the video counts as a vote)

Volunteer Recognition Award – LSMHA

Hockey Winnipeg is honouring the contributions of volunteers by presenting awards on a monthly basis.  There will be 14 awards presented, including one for each Area Association as well as the AAA Council, AA Council, Female Council and a Hockey Winnipeg general.

Award recipients are chosen by their Association/Council.  In order to be eligible, the individual must have spent at least five years helping in their community.

For September, Lord Selkirk Minor Hockey Association has chosen to present Nick Reeb with the Volunteer Recognition Award! LSMHA President Chad Balmer had this to say about Nick:

Nick has been a valued board member of LSMHA for over 5 years. Nick started with LSMHA as the Community Club Rep for East Selkirk, Nick was instrumental in improving the relationship with LSMHA and East Selkirk.

Nick then became the Atom age director for LSMHA for 2 years and was the primary contact for all Atom Teams out of LSMHA. During his time as age director Nick was also doing many other tasks for LSMHA, he was the lead board member during evaluations ensuring the elevation software that LSMHA worked for all ages and reports and information was sent to all age directors and board members, many times running reports late at night to ensure timelines were met. Nick also was a key member in the centralizing all registration and data collection for LSMHA during this time, from running reports to creating forms. Due to Nick’s commitment and time he put in not only as an age director but also all the other tasks Nick did for LSMHA our association would not be where it is today.

Nick took on the Role of VP Registration which was a newly created position. In this position Nick continued to stream line and ensure our evaluation software was convenient for age directors and communication to all parents and players was done is a timely manner ensuring reports were sent and players and information were uploaded into LSMHA systems. Many times Nick would be answering e-mails and fixing issues all hours of the day and ensuring things were done to meet deadlines and members expectations. On top of the evaluations Nick was also responsible for creating all registration information in the HCR and LSMHA’s sportsengine system to ensure all members could easily register for hockey and that the collection of information was provided to the LSMHA executive.

Nick has been a huge part of the changes to the LSMHA evaluation and Registration processes and other areas of LSMHA and has put in countless hours to ensure both members and executive can save time and focus on supporting their teams. LSMHA is lucky to have him on our team.

Congratulations Nick!
