As the 2015-2016 MJHL season is about to open up for the Neepawa Natives, the planning and preparation has been ongoing for many months. The ice is ready to go, the bus is serviced and a lengthy list of volunteers get set to embark on the new season. Players will be re-uniting with their billets, new players embarking on their junior hockey career and the loyal fans finding their familiar seat at the Madhouse on Mountain (aka Yellowhead Arena).
The organization is seeking some help from the community in terms of the Booster Club. In the past, the Booster Club has played an important role in helping the junior hockey club off the ice. There are still some areas that need attention such as the Holiday Social, Year End Banquet, Cash Draw, and a few other items. “Neepawa has an excellent volunteer base and people always jump up to help. The Booster Club is an extension of the organization and part of the team. We already have an extensive list of volunteers that help all the time”, stated General Manager Myles Cathcart.
The Booster Club can meet on a regular basis at the convenience of the volunteers to plan activities important to the success of the club. Cathcart went on to mention, “The Booster Club will not take up a lot of time. Take in a few projects, ask some friends to help and it becomes a social outing much like a service club.”
If you would like to help the team out in the area of joining the Booster Club please contact Kevin Cook at 204.476.4016.
