IMPORTANT GAHA UPDATE: PEWEE A WIN DISTRICTS!
GREENWAY RECREATIONAL ICE FISHING TOURNAMENT This 2nd annual event (previously the Jen Guyer tournament which began in 2003) was held on January 31, 2015 on trout lake. It was coordinated by Kim Venema to benefit the Greenway Sports Complex. Kim's evaluation of the event is that it was even better than last year! See the results and coverage by clicking HERE.
by GAHA webmaster: "January 15 was a night to remember for GAHA mini-mites and mites. They got to skate with their idols, the Raiders High School hockey team! There was a great turnout and many smiling faces. The high schoolers did a fantastic job of leading the minis and mites through several drills and a couple of games of pom-pom-pullaway. Although, we're not sure who enjoyed that game more...the little Raiders or the big Raiders. A big THANK YOU to Joe O'Toole for organizing this event! And, thanks to all of the high school players who participated...you all set a great example for the young players."
