Ice installation delayed and other information!
We have today been advised by the Town that the opening of the rink has been delayed until the week of October 4th, as the  hydro upgrades and the ice plant refrigeration units being installed are behind schedule.

We realize this is disappointing news to be sharing but please know the GMHA Executive is currently working hard behind the scenes to get our season up and running ASAP. 

While we maybe a little late in starting the season our season will be extended. This season hockey will go to the beginning of March, as the OMHA has mandated that meaningful hockey go until then, followed by playoffs and tournament weekends. 

The EOMHL League (REP hockey) is expected to start the weekend following Thanksgiving, and the start date for the ICHL (house/local league hockey) is expecting a similar start date.

We will still be expected to follow COVID-19 protocols this season.  We are in the process of finalizing our guidelines for here in Gan and this information will be passed along as quickly as we can.  As well, as we will be travelling again this year to other centres we will be putting together a guideline spreadsheet for the COVID-19 protocols for other arenas.

Please continue to watch our website and FaceBook page for further updates.
