|Oct 15th, 2015||Bottle Drive|
Bottle Drive - The bottle drive will be advertised on the Town sign and on the webpage advising the community of the event. We have found that some people will have their bottles out ready for us to pick up. Every player meets at Pembina Place at 930am for map of your required area of Redwater. Typically we have aprox. 4 kids per truck. At 10am the players will go door to door to asking for any bottles to help support Redwater Minor Hockey. We ask that if they player have Redwater Minor Hockey attire that it be worn. Once you have completed your area, you return to the bottle depot to unload your bottles. A few people may be required to help empty the bags onto the table for the Depot.
Cash Calendar - manitory for all players
Cash calendars is a new idea we are trying this year to raise money to pay for the referees. The calendar is replacing the 50/50 square boards therefore the first calendar is not part of our fundraising. All minor hockey players must sell the calendar, even the non fundraising kids. Each player is required to sell 4 calendars at $20 a calendar. How the calendar works, is we will be giving out cash prizes for the whole month of November the least amount being $40 and the most being $300, If you win your name goes back in the draw to have a chance at winning the rest of the days.
The 2nd Calendar is for fundraising parents only and those familys that opted to pay the $400 fundraising will be exempt from selling this calendar.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
It is important for hockey parents to understand that registration fees do not cover the cost of our children playing hockey. Further, in order to grow the Redwater Minor Hockey Association (RMHA) and to continue to improve the conditions for our children to play hockey, it is necessary to either substantially raise fees or to do several fundraising activities throughout the hockey year.
In the past, parent surveys have revealed that the majority of families wish to keep the fees at a reasonable level and to volunteer their time and do fundraising. With this in mind, fundraising activities will be required for the current hockey season.
The RMHA executive will be going through some committee changes and we feel that it is important to allow the upcoming committee the freedom to research and implement the possibility of new fundraising activities. Therefore, for current season the following will apply:
RMHA will evaluate and implement activities that will meet the fundraising requirements for the successful operation of Redwater Minor Hockey. These activities may include (but not limited to) Casinos, Raffle tickets, Bottle Drive. Other activities as determined by RMHA. Each family will be required to meet the fundraising commitments as determined by RMHA. Due to Alberta Gaming regulations, volunteers for some activities must be a minimum of 18 years old.
Ø It is expected that families follow through with activities that are signed up for. Should an emergency arise, it is your responsibility to trade with someone for another activity and to notify the RMHA Fundraising Coordinator or your volunteer cheque will be cashed.
Ø Please note that although RMHA encourages and appreciates the volunteer time of coaches, managers, etc., team volunteer time (such as 50/50's and Team Boards) does not count for revenue-generating volunteer time. Hockey executive and committee members will also participate in revenue-generating activities.
Fundraising Requirement Options
Option #1 (Required per family)
- The following cheques will be required to accompany your child’s registration:
- $600 volunteer deposit - dated for the next spring - March 31 (will not be cashed if volunteer time is provided) It is your responsibility to return any sold ticket stubs and money by the assigned due dates.
I understand that I will be required to participate in all fundraising activities for 2013/14 as determined and approved by RMHA. If fundraising requirements set by the RMHA executive are not met your cheque will be cashed and only Option #2 will be available for the following hockey season.
