Street Hockey Report for Sunday 15th February 2015

We have had a lot of new people join the group in the last few months, so I just want to say welcome aboard to all of them. Looking forward to seeing you at the rink in the near future.

This newsletter has six items. Most are the same as last time. Of highest importance is that there is no game this Friday (Feb. 20th). We had a few people sign up after the deadline, but that doesn't help since I cancel immediately after the deadline hits. So, please remember to sign up before the deadline, which unfortunately falls at 8pm on the Wednesday in the week before the week in which we play Friday hockey (yeah, it's confusing).

Cheers,

Chad

-----------------

1. Game off for Friday, February 20

We were a few signups short by the deadline, so no game this coming Friday (20th). Please sign up for the 6th BEFORE the deadline so we can play.

3. Upfront payment

At the last game, so guys were offering to pay up front for a series of games. I am cool with that, so here is my proposal:

-12 games = 29,000 (2,417/game)

-6 games = 17,000 (2,833/game)

If you choose this route, please bring the money to the next game (Mar. 6th). I will credit you with the games you pay for, but you will still need to sign up as usual.

6. Call for photos

Over the next few months, Dave and I will be working to bring the website into the new millennium. Since the current website use quite light, low resolution photos, I am calling on you to share some of your HD pics so that our new website can be much more web 2.0ish.

If you have some GOOD photos of us hockey folk playing, drinking, etc. I would love to get them. HOWEVER, PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL THEM TO ME!!! Rather, share them with the hockey address (info@tokyohockey.com) through Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.
