Effort put into staging tournament appreciated

I would like to thank Jody King, this year’s KPHA Peninsula Winter Games Tournament Director! She did a wonderful job, and it was her first year! This is a massive, massive job and she managed everything gracefully. Also a big thank you to all the parents and coaches that volunteer! These events count on parents to run the clock, keep score, man the penalty box, manage locker rooms and hospitality rooms, prepare tournament bags and posters, and the list goes on. These parents and coaches give their time for the benefit of our kids. Many have full time jobs, other children and a myriad of other life duties … yet there they are, giving their time again and again. As a parent who can’t always give as much time as I’d like, I want them to know how appreciated they are. How lucky we are to have folks to teach this sport, along with determination, sportsmanship, and focus to our kids. How lucky we are to have moms and dads manage the administrative side of things. Thank you, thank you! I’d also like to say thank you to Stanley Chrysler for their very generous sponsorship of the tournament as well as to all the sponsors and donors! We are so fortunate to have such a supportive community! Go Ice Hawks!
