37th Annual Ron Stamm Memorial Midget All-star Game
Date: January 24, 2016
Location of the All Star Game: East End Arena
Time of the Game: 5:30 p.m.
This All-Star game is dedicated to the memory of MR. Ronald Carl Stamm as a reminder of the importance of volunteer coaches, managers and assistants to the game of hockey.
Ron was a proud, devoted individual the same as the people overseeing the two teams playing in this game. He was known to accept input from his assistants and managers and to offer his constructive criticism to any player not giving one hundred percent… but quick to commend a team effort. His coaching was simple and to the point commanding respect to playing the game aggressively, effectively and with demonstrated camaraderie toward the opposing team. Ron was widely known to the youth of Fort Rouge/Fort Garry area through his dedication to the game of hockey and baseball.
Ron served nine years with Lord Roberts Community Centre as a coach, vice-president and president and started those years as a volunteered coach that played 70% of the time outdoors. (This meant scraping and flooding the ice and sharpening the skates.) He coached Lord Roberts’s baseball, working with the youth and ladies house league. His coaching path took him to devoting two years to the South End Chiefs organization. His energies were also freely given to being a founding member of the Lord Roberts Wildlife Association.
Ron’s last years were with the Fort Rouge Minor Hockey Association as a coach, vice president and two years as a president.
Ron particularly enjoyed coaching the South Division team in the Third Annual All-Star Midget game and to have the honour of selecting the Most Valuable players at the second and fourth All-Star Games.
Today, and in subsequent years, the M.V.P. will be presented with the trophy dedicated in memory of Mr. Ronald Carl Stamm.
All of those early morning practices at the rink. Waking them up, loading the equipment into the car, your coffee traveler filled to the brim, the weather report calling for snowstorms – and that’s just the beginning.
The 5th annual 680 CJOB Minor Hockey Road Show is presented in part by Royal Sports.
680 CJOB will provide commentary during the games, calling goals, assists and penalties – and introduce each player as they skate out onto the ice. And, other 680 CJOB personalities will be there to join in on the fun of course.
Each age group (7/8 House League, 8, 9, 10, and one all girls game) will get to play one game of three 12 minute periods, with a two minute warm up prior to puck drop. And, before the puck hits the ice, the National Anthem will be sung – just like in the big leagues.
