ICE RINK UPDATE- the latest as at 6 January
Alexandra Palace Ice Rink management informed us that HJIHC can get back to their home ice on SATURDAY 22 January! HURRAY! This means we return straight to a U14 Haringey Hounds game. It will be tough as the teams haven't had ice since December 9th. Nevertheless the excitement of being back at THE PALACE should give the team a boost. Hopefully everyone will come and support our Hounds.
Practice at Alexandra Palace will commence on Monday January 24 and practices will be Mondays and Fridays. Specific training times for each age group will be posted soon. Just have to get the details from coaches.
GALA OPENING FRIDAY EVENING 21 JANUARY HJIHC has been given a slot to showcase their skills ahead of the main show. We hope to show some good drills, strong hockey stops, hard shots and maybe a x-ice scrimmage to entertain the crowd and drum up interest for new members.
COMMITTEE MEETING Thursday 13 January. The committee is made up of Chairperson, secretary, treasurer, head coach, head of tryouts and team managers. If you have anything you want raised at committee please let your team manager know. U10 Liz, U12 Peter and Joe, U14 Lucia and Mimi.

HARINGEY ICE HOCKEY GOES TO SCHOOL!
Haringey Junior Ice Hockey Club were out in force at the Fortismere XMAS Fair and Coldfall Winter Festival recruiting for new players in anticipation of the reopening of Alexandra Palace Ice Rink in January. Potential players took shots at goal and tried on helmets and gloves to get a taste of ice hockey. The Club will be holding an expanded TRY OUT ICE HOCKEY and LEARN TO PLAY programme to boost the membership in the club which plays in the EIHA South league. The club is recruiting players age 6 to 15 to play in age groups U10, U12, U14, u16 and U18. We will post the training times once the ice rink confirms opening so keep an eye on this site.
Thanks to all the players and parents who helped out. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Sessions are held every Wednesday for U14 Team Members and Thursday for U10's and U12's.
Both of these sessions are held at Sobell Leisure Centre from 19:15 to 20:15,
We also have a mixed age group session on Saturday mornings from 9:45 to 10:45.
U18s, although registered with Haringey, are training and playing with Lee Valley this season. Hopefully we can get over there to cheer them on from time to time. They will be back training at Ally Pally in 2011.
The fixtures for the season have been published and can be found on the EIHA website.

There is a new registration system up and running. Sandy Ippolito is our club secretary and registration secretary so any questions should be directed to her.
BANK STANDING ORDERS
Don't forget to contact your bank with the new Standing Order instructions so payments in September are correct.
The palace refurbishment is now back on schedule, after a couple of hiccups, with an expected opening in December.
There will be a brand new 56mx26m International sized ice surface, and new boards (sadly no plexiglass just yet) The number of seats will remain unchanged and the toilets and changing rooms will receive a much needed spruce up.
