Unclaimed 50/50 Prize Pot
On Saturday January 19th 2019 we ran a 50/50 Raffle during the 2nd day of our Atom A Tournament at the Memorial Sports Centre Ice for Kids Rink in Fort Frances. The prize pot for that day was $222.50. The draw was done at 2:10pm with the winning ticket number drawn being 672003. The prize remains unclaimed.
If you have the winning ticket, please contact Travis Enge, Treasurer FFMHA, at 807-276-4733 or email@example.com. The prize pot will be kept available to be claimed for 30 calendar days from the date of the draw. If it is still unclaimed at that time, the proceeds will go to the Fort Frances Minor Hockey Association to help pay for our ice expenses.
Please find below a great link to a Hockey Canada document entitled "Hockey 101". In this document you will find helpful information about equipment requirements, basic rules and respect in the game.
