Cancellation Notice, Holiday Break & New Year Programming
Hello Bears Families,

By now, you should have received notice from your coaches and managers in regards to this upcoming week starting Mon, Dec 14th.......

THIS WEEK Dec. 14th - 18th 2020 (bad news)
Over the last two days, we have received conflicting documentation from the PHU, OMHA as well as arenas.  PHU wants us to have 10 on the ice including coaches and OMHA allows for 12 (including 2 coaches).  Arenas do not have meetings for further direction until Mon/Tues so we will not receive any solid information until then to move forward.  We will also struggle with splitting ice times fairly among all teams throughout the week.  Timelines are tight and there are a lot of moving parts to make sure we are accommodating everyone and complying with protocol.  We are hoping to gain this one ice time per team in March as we are looking to extend the season as far as we can as playoffs will not take place.
 
Therefore, the board has made a unanimous vote to cancel ice time for this week ONLY (Dec 14th - Dec 18th)
 

WINTER BREAK - DEC 19th - JAN 3rd
 

JANUARY 4th, 2021 (good news)
The board has come up with a RED plan so that we can continue providing programming based on the parameters we are given.  Once we have solid information from PHU, OMHA and arenas, we can then present the programming to coaches on Wednesday at our coaches meeting.  We will discuss, answer questions and take feedback at that time.  Once we have finalized the programming that night, we will provide it to you the next day so you can understand what we are able to offer.

I hope you were able to enjoy this past weekend.  I know players have shown great growth and hope they have enjoyed their time since September.  Thank you to all coaches, managers, arena staff, players, families and the Board for everyone's hard work, compliance and positive energy. We will be in touch near the end of the week for Part Two!  :)

Tim Hortons
The Story of Tim Hortons. The Tim Hortons chain was founded in 1964 in Hamilton, Ontario. The chain's focus on top quality, always fresh product, value, great service and community leadership has allowed it to grow into the largest quick service restaurant chain in Canada specializing in always fresh coffee, baked goods and homestyle lunches. The first Tim Hortons restaurants offered only two products - coffee and donuts. The selection of donuts to enjoy was highlighted by two original Tim Hortons creations, the Apple Fritter and the Dutchie. They became the most popular donut choices in the 60's, and remain two of the most popular today. But as consumer tastes grew, so did the choices at Tim Hortons. The biggest change in the chain's product focus took place in 1976 with the introduction of the phenomenally successful Timbit (bite-sized donut hole), today available in over 35 different varieties. The chain's growth into the 1980's brought about a whole series of new product introductions: muffins (1981), cakes (1981), pies (1982), croissants (1983), cookies (1984), and soups & chili (1985). Sandwiches, which were originally introduced in 1993, were re-introduced as a new and improved line-up of 6 varieties, called "Tim's Own", in 1998. Also, in the 1990's, bagels (1996), flavored cappuccino (1997), Café Mocha (1999) and Iced Cappuccino (1999) were introduced. In 2003, the Turkey Bacon Club sandwich and Maple Pecan Danish were successful menu additions. In 2005 Tim Hortons introduced, Yogurt & Berries, Cinnamon Roll and Hot Smoothee to the menu. Many new great products were added to the menu in 2006 such as the Chicken Salad Wrap and the hot Breakfast Sandwich (eggs, sausage or bacon, processed cheese on a toasted homestyle biscuit). The chain's biggest drawing card remains its legendary Tim Hortons coffee. The special blend is also available in cans, as are Tim Hortons hot chocolate and English Toffee and French Vanilla cappuccinos, so guests can also enjoy these great tasting products at home. In addition to our regular stand alone restaurants, Tim Hortons locations can also be found in shopping malls, highway outlets, universities and hospitals, providing prominent visibility for the chain. Most standard Tim Hortons locations offer 24-hour drive-thru service, catering to consumers on the go. Combo unit locations, which house both a Tim Hortons and Wendy's, offer guests the convenience of both restaurants under one roof. In 1995, Tim Hortons merged with Wendy's International, Inc., giving new focus and impetus to the expansion of the Tim Hortons concept in the United States. The Canadian operation is primarily franchise owned and operated, and expansion plans call for the same key strategy to be implemented in the US and abroad. In March 2006, Tim Hortons completed an initial public offering of the company and was fully spun off as a separate company as of September 29, 2006. In December 2014, Tim Hortons became wholly owned by Restaurant Brands International, a public company whose common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol QSR.
