Just a reminder that tomorrow, Wednesday 12/12 is our last Summer Juniors. Thanks to all U7 and11 who replied to my email. U7 and U11 will run at 5pm, any older siblings waiting for 6pm start, can join in. U15s will commence at 6pm. If it is only drizzling, hockey will be on! Bring a towel and a change of clothes and come and join the fun in the rain. If the rain is heavy or we have thunder and lightning then I will put a post up for 5pm by 4.20pm, and 5.30pm for 6pm. See you there!
We hope that all our Hockey Community has a great break and a wonderful time with their families.

Note: Excerpt from 2018 MHI Competition Rules re Grand Finals: 14 B [xi] Semi-Finals and Finals will be taken to extra time with drop off and golden goal rule, as for the Grand Final (see 14B[xii]). If the score is still even, the team with the higher position on the table from the preliminary rounds will move forward to the next round. 14B [xii] If at the completion of the extra time for Grand Finals for all grades the score is still even, the drop-off rule to 9 players, then to 7 players and playing for 5 minutes each way, with golden goal rule, is to be played instead of penalty shoot-out. If it is still a draw, then the “penalty shoot-out 8 seconds competition” will determine the outcome, except in the Under 13 and below Grades, where the Grand Finalists will be declared Joint Premiers.
TROPHY MONEY DONATION: The teams have decided that this year their trophy money will be donated to Rural Aid /Buy a Bale, to help drought stricken local farmers. There will also be a bucket collection for Rural Aid on Grand Final Day.
