To MN Hockey Neighboring State USAH Organizations:
As you are likely aware last night the governor of the state of Minnesota issued an executive order in Minnesota that effectively pauses all youth sports in Minnesota. As the governing body of Hockey in Minnesota, MN Hockey will follow the governor's directive. Effective 11:59 P.M. on Friday November 20, 2020 MN Hockey and its associations as well as teams are on pause.
All Minnesota Hockey Association Rostered teams are not allowed to play during the designated pause time period. This includes play outside of Minnesota in bordering states. Play is defined as practice, scrimmages, games and tournaments.
It is my opinion that any MN Hockey Team that plays during this time period does so as an unsanctioned team and not representative of MN Hockey nor USAH. Playing a team from MN Hockey during this pause time period is playing a non-sanctioned team as defined by USAH.
I am hopeful that you will forward this information to those necessary to ensure no violation of USAH rules occurs by a member affiliate of your organization.
Due to Governor Burgum's proclamation last night, all hockey Hazen Winter Sports activities are suspended beginning Monday through December 14th. More details to come.
The Hazen Winter Sports Board of Directors is pleased to announce that we have formally approved a project to replace our aging ice plant/refrigeration system. The budget for the project is $950,000, and will include the new system and its installation, as well as a separate new building of approximately 30'x40' to house it. The new system will be expandable to accommodate a 2nd studio/smaller practice rink in the future if HWS ever decides to pursue such a project. HWS has enough savings and investments in our portfolio to cover about 2/3 of this project ourselves, but we are targeting $250,000 in a fundraising campaign to cover the rest. This fundraising campaign is being spearheaded by Mandy Senske and our Events/Fundraising Committee, and is well underway. HWS has a GoFundMe page set up for your convenience, but to save the GoFundMe service charge you can also mail your donation directly to HWS.
