NYHA Family and Friends,
As we say goodbye to another wonderful season of hockey in the mountains, from all reports, it was a great success from the Learn to Skate program to the Bantams and every level in between. That's a testament to you, coaches and team managers, countless hours of behind the scenes efforts by our volunteers and most importantly, the kids.
It is with the kids and next season in mind that we come to you today and ask for one final helping hand. One of our biggest fundraisers each year is the Silent Auction, which historically has been held at the year-end Banquet - attended by our hockey family only. This year, we are really trying to build on past years success and ramp it up even more. We are going after more items and items that will draw in more of the local community. That's where you come in! The board will solicit donations from local businesses as we have done in the past, but this year we are reaching out to the extended hockey family for donations as well. We are looking for items with a retail value of $25 and up - anything from local art, gift cards, services, furniture etc. Anything that will draw some interest, we would greatly appreciate.
Sample items that are already secured for this year’s Silent Auction are:
Whatever you, your friends, family or business can give to support our efforts!!!
Also, we are changing the location and set up of the event to ensure more of the community will see our items. Wild Mountain Smokehouse will host the event on Friday, April 12th, from 4 – 8 PM.
Our goal is to raise enough money this year to eliminate the need for smaller fundraisers throughout the year. So, please get out there and help the kids with whatever items you can donate. Your efforts and generosity are greatly appreciated and keep our league and our kids moving forward in this great game that we love.
Thank you in advance for your support,

Ned Hockey Family,
In an attempt to improve our fundraising efforts this year, we are trying to set up a booth at Frozen Dead Guy Days. We have come up with an idea we feel can bring in some good money and be lots of fun for patrons and volunteers alike. We have some baseline information, but need your help to get the idea brought to life and implemented.
The idea is simple - How hard can you shoot a puck? (just like throwing a baseball at the county fair). We have secured a radar gun from the NPD and are testing it out as we speak. Assuming it picks up a hockey puck and will register the speed, we are half way there.
Date: Saturday March 9th
Time: 1:00 - 4:00 (tentative)
Cost: Buck a shot, 10 for $5, 20 for $10
Prizes: NYHA swag including T-shirts, hats, bumper stickers and the like
What we need from you:
Thanks in advance for your help!!
