Invitational Hockey Tournament

As you are probably aware our 42nd Burlington Oldtimers Invitational Hockey Tournament is scheduled to be held February 21-25, 2018 at Mainway Arena.

Prize ticket sales are vital to the success of the tournament and they help to keep our BOHC operational costs down… so we are counting on your support. As you are also aware, a portion of the proceeds from this tournament will go to Carpenter Hospice in Burlington. Sold tickets should be turned in at Hectors’ by the 12th of February. 

We are also seeking Prize donations… the more we receive… the better the prize table and hence better raffle ticket sales. Please bring them along to the club.

We are also seeking “Sponsorship“ support and are selling banner ads at the tournament at the following rates… for $250, your company name/logo will be displayed on the glass in both arenas, displayed on the sponsorship wall in the auditorium and on information sheets on each table in the auditorium.  What a great way to advertise your firm… Availability is limited, so please act now! The deadline is February 10. 

We are also asking for Volunteers to help out as well. Please contact your Convener if you’re able to pitch in. We need all the help we can muster.

PS… we do have loads of fun as well!

Santa Claus Parade

Santa Claus is coming to town. Burlington's 52nd annual Santa Claus Parade will feature bands, colourful floats, mascots, and jolly old Gil Verwey himself riding the Zamboni. Gil has donated his time and the zamboni for 7 years now!
BOHC volunteer extraordinaire, Gunther Kaschuba is once again Chairman of the whole event. He puts in a lot of time here and is supported by a cast of 10-15 BOHC players who act as BOHC ambassadors collecting coins to help cover the event costs. If you’re out there this Sunday – please drop in a toonie for the helpful BOHC player volunteers as they walk along the sides of the route. And Gunther – THANK YOU for representing us so well in the Community!
This year's parade starts at 2:00 pm, Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017

BOHC Christmas Dance

Thanks as well to all the players and their wives for joining us at the Legion this weekend for some live music, dancing and a few games. We were close to full capacity this season and Lloyd Millar’s band Speakeasy were fantastic! Thanks to Colin Ashdown and thanks to all of you that lent us the support for a great event.

The proceeds from the tickets your team purchased helped start to build our Food Bank charity donation for this season. Please continue to support our BOWSER ladies as the Food Bank really appreciates everything you do for our families that need a little help.

Sad News - MICHAEL MOES Passing

Michael Moes

It is with a heavy heart that we announce Michael’s passing at Joseph Brant Hospital, Burlington on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at the age of 79.

Beloved husband for 55 years of Susan (nee Peacock) Moes. Dearly loved father of Kathryn Connell (Thomas) and Michael Moes (Cindy). Cherished grandfather to Ethan and Adam Moes and Alexandra and Peter Connell of Massachusetts. Predeceased by his parents, Gerry and Cecilia Moes and sister Monica Davidson (Dr. H.A Davidson) of Burlington. An uncle to Sandra Peters (Bill), Ian and Keith Davidson (Linda), Lisa and Susan Niedermayr.

A life-long resident of Aldershot in Burlington, Mike achieved success in all aspects of his life. As an avid multi-sport athlete he took particular pride as one of the early members of the Burlington Oldtimers Hockey Club in 1972, playing into his early seventies. In business he retired from RBC as Vice President with RT Investment Counsel only to spend another decade with TD Asset Management doing work he loved to do. His greatest role and success was as a highly devoted family man. He was blessed with many great friends and colleagues and a family who cherished and admired him greatly. Mike attended Hillfield College in Hamilton, McMaster and Carlton Universities.

Private Cremation has taken place. A Memorial Gathering will be held at SMITH'S FUNERAL HOME, 485 Brant Street, (one block north of City Hall), BURLINGTON (905-632-3333), on Thursday, July 13, 2017 from 4-7 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Michael to The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, Burlington Humane Society or charity of your choice, will be sincerely appreciated by the family.
