Graham Smith is optimistic that ice can go back into the Armour, Ryerson and Burk’s Falls Memorial Arena next month in time for summer ice programs. The manager of the arena says staff are targeting June 18 as the day they want to start up the ice plant, which would make ice available for the public by July 4. One of the biggest users of the Burk’s Falls arena is Winning Techniques, a summer camp business that operates out of Emsdale and engages young people in a variety of physical activities like water sports, horseback riding, adventure dance, figure skating and hockey. Winning Techniques rents the Burk’s Falls arena to run its ice-related programs. “We’ve talked to Winning Techniques and they’ve given us a deadline of June 1 to confirm if they will have hours for a summer camp,” Smith said.

The Provincial Junior Hockey League has officially announced the cancellation of the 2020/21 sea-son. This year will pretty much be a blank page in the record books.Teams got in a few exhibition games this year, and even that was difficult. Teams couldn’t cross heath districts to play, meaning their competition was reduced to a couple of teams. There were no fans, the rules were changed, and teams had to split their lines and play in a re-duced capacity. The Alliston Hornets managed to get in a couple of games. “We played Orillia and that was before Christmas,” said Hornets captain Ben Beausaert earlier in the season. “We were playing with no contact, different rules and there was social distancing on the bench. There were no face-offs either. It definitely was a different game. It was more like a scrimmage. We only had two lines on the bench and there was no stoppage. Luckily were we all practicing before that so we were all in shape.” The League issued a statement on … [Read more...] about PJHL officially ends the season – Hornets done for the year
Plans are moving forward for the Ed Broadbent Waterfront Park. Oshawa City Council voted unanimously to move the project forward at its April 26 meeting. Regional Councillor Brian Nicholson says the overall concept is an extremely important addition to the city’s waterfront. “It gives an obvious tribute to Ed Broadbent and his contributions to our city,” he says, adding the sooner the project can be fully completed the better it’ll be for the entire community. City Councillor John Gray says it’s important to have a park that’s different in that it’s a passive park and that all residents of every age should be able to enjoy the parks in the city. “Obviously, recreation is something that has no age limits. We do recreation for the very young, through our teenage years, and then as active participants in the community, and then we become seniors,” he says, noting the city is doing a good job when it can cater to all age groups. “We’ve done a great job in recreation in the past … [Read more...] about Ed Broadbent Waterfront Park plans moving forward
