Volunteer Appreciation Night – January 18
2018 was another successful year for our organization! One of the main reasons we continue to grow and succeed as an organization is due to the countless number of volunteers that dedicate their time to ensuring our events and activities run smoothly.
Some of the events we were able to host as a result of our volunteers include: Winter Stag; Hockey Day; Poker Tournament; Park Days; Ladies Night; Mother’s Day Roast; Big Picnic, May; World Cup games; Super Sunday Picnic, August; Youth Awards Night; Golf Tournament; Kotlovina challenge.
To honour and recognize individuals that have helped as volunteers in ANY of our events or activities, we are hosting a Volunteer Night for anyone who has supported us in 2018 or is intending to help with similar events in 2019. The details of this event are below, and once again, a big thank you to everyone so let’s take some time to celebrate!
We hope to see as many volunteers as possible next week as we gather to celebrate all they have done for our community!
Date: January 18, 2019
Time: Doors Open at 5:30pm – Food at 6:30pm
Location: The Club at 166 Green Mountain Road East, Stoney Creek
*Volunteers will be provided food as well as a few complimentary drinks at the bar – all volunteers are welcome!

HamCro Hockey Day 10 – February 17
As is the annual tradition, for the tenth year in succession, HCHD will be held on the Sunday of Family Day weekend – Sunday, February 17th!
REGISTER – If you are interested in registering, please email Frank Perin at firstname.lastname@example.org or better yet, directly at Hamilton Croatia Forum here: http://hamiltoncroatia.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2860 for Frank to easily keep track of registered players.
As your name will be drafted to make even numbers on teams, if you register please prepare to be there or let Frank know if you can’t make it. You’re either in or out – NOT BOTH.
The random draft will be done Friday, February 15th at the Annual Winter Stag at GMR following the raffle that night (11 p.m. is the rough start time of the draft).
COST — Friday stag ticket and Sunday Hockey Day combo is $40/guy. Payment must be in prior to the stag, or your name will not be entered in the draft. For those that don’t want a stag ticket, cost is $30 for hockey (and obviously the gourmet buffet provided by BBQ MVPs)! There will also be a donation box at the BBQ area for anyone not playing hockey to help chip in for the food!
SIGN-UP DEADLINE — Thursday, Feb. 14 at 8 p.m. (but please – earlier the better)
The rink at Fifty Point is rented from 11AM-4PM and like every year, rain or shine, we’re on! Wear long johns!
2019 Summer House League Soccer & Turf Project
Please stay tuned for early bird pricing dates for registering your children with our House League Soccer registrations. As you know, this year will be amazingly different with the installation of turf soccer facilities.
The construction of the turf fields was somewhat delayed in late 2018 due to all the rain and inclement weather; however, we are fully expecting to be back on schedule in 2019 and will post additional updates and progress reports as they are available.
