The season is upon us and I want to give you a quick equipment update!
It’s been quite the offseason with the major renovations going on at GPRC, now referred to as “The Lodge”, new home of the Langley Rivermen. Our equipment storage room was moved into the skate shop and a storage container! As expected the reno is running a little behind and equipment handouts are going to be a little more “creative” this season but the Township is being great about helping us out where they can – and the ice is officially in so let the season begin!
Because of this, if things seem a little disorganized this season, please be patient. Some of the jerseys will be a little dusty when you receive them. We ask that you please help us out and give them a quick wash before wearing. We appreciate your help as washing 2500 jerseys prior to the season seemed a little overwhelming! We are arranging for as many coaches as possible to come pick up their jerseys over the next two weeks so that should give you a little extra time for that quick wash.
On another not, I am excited to announce that the The Hockey Shop is going to be our new apparel supplier this season. I know The Hockey Shop will do a great job for us. We will have our LMHA Apparel web page up and running shortly with contact details and product information.
The Hockey Shop will be coming to Langley for fittings starting on September 17th and 18th for our Rep teams. Please stay tuned for details and reminders closer to that date. We may also be arranging apparel fittings for our House teams and will keep you posted on that as House teams are formed. Teams and members are always welcome to go into The Hockey Shop (Surrey) if it is more convenient.
Here is a message from Brad Whiddington, Manager of The Hockey Shop…
“The Hockey Shop Source for Sports is excited to announce a new partnership with Lmha as their official apparel supplier for the 2016-2017 season. We are looking forward to partnering with LMHA. The Hockey Shop (Surrey) hopes to streamline their team apparel and equipment orders. The Hockey Shop has an entire department in our store dedicated to Team Sales and we feel confident we will be able to meet and exceed the expectations of your members. Attached, The Hockey Shop has extended an additional $25 off coupon to all members of LMHA that can be used on regular or sale priced items (expires on September 18, 2016).”
Thank you so much and I look forward to another great season!
