We have a new website and Domain Starting this year
Come Check it out :)
Just a quick request. Zehrs is having a Winter Fun Day on December 10th, 11 am - 3 pm, there will be $5 photos with Santa and a sleigh ride.
The folks at Stamford Lions Club (where we had our Trivia Night) are collecting donations of "new, unwrapped" toys to pass on to Toys for Tots.
The Niagara Falls Ringette Association would love to help them out. We will be collecting toys every Tuesday until December 6th at the Gale Centre Arena, and at the Chippawa Arena Saturday mornings including December 10th. On the 10th we will give our donations to the Stamford Lions Club on behalf of all the families of Niagara Falls Ringette and help make a difference this Christmas.
Thanks for your continued support!
Come Try Ringette

One more event will be held on Saturday, September 17th from 4-5pm at the Gale Centre in Niagara Falls. Brendan Sylvia reports.

Niagara Falls Daredevils Ringette Banquet
Thursday April 7th at St. Antoine Hall on Portage Rd
Doors open at 5:30 and dinner is at 6pm
Players, bench staff and executive are free
Additional adults $10 and children $5 – pay at the door
Bar will be open
If you would like to bring a dessert for after dinner, all donations in this respect are more than welcome.
Coaches, please try to collect jerseys at the end of your least game this weekend, but otherwise, please bring you jerseys, or any loaned equipment to the banquet. If you cannot make it out, please contact Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org to make other arrangements.
Registration for next season will be available at the banquet. We encourage you to register early so that we will know what teams we are icing before we sign our ice contracts for the coming season. Some incentive to do so, is the following. First, if you register with 25% down at the banquet, it will lock in our current registration fee for next season. These rates may be subject to change if the new executive for next season decides to do so. Second, if you register with 25% down at the banquet, you will also be placed in a draw for a free registration for next season – a $400 value!!
We customarily do our elections at the banquet for our executive for next season, so we ask that you read over the positions attached in a word document, and pasted below too, to see if there is some way that you can help out. You can even sign up for a position with a partner! We have had some fantastic people that have been helping for many years, and a few of them may be moving on to other things. We have also had some new faces on our executive this year, that have done an outstanding job in their positions, and we are very grateful for their help this year. Thank you! Just like our girls do on the ice, our executive works together as a team, to get things done for the kids. If you would like to be nominated, or would like to nominate someone else for a position, please let me know, at the banquet or ahead of time. If you are currently holding a position, and would like to remain there, please also let this be known.
