2016 CLFHA AGM Notice and Proxy

Posted by Astros Field Hockey Club at Oct 19, 2016 10:43AM PDT

Please find the 2016 CLFHA AGM Notice and Proxy attached as well as on the CLFHA website under MEDIA | Documents.

Please ensure to bring any completed proxies to the AGM for quorum confirmation.

CALGARY LADIES’ FIELD HOCKEY ASSOCIATION
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2016
TALISMAN CENTRE, RIVERVIEW ROOM
STARTING AT 6:30 PM

The document 2016 CLFHA AGM Notice and Proxy - Astros Club Reps was attached to this post.

With a huge roster turnover, but a good core of players to hold the fort, the Rush team had a steady 2016 outdoor season and finished round robin play in a strong 3rd position with 7 wins, 4 losses, and 2 ties … a mere 3 points out of 2nd due to a close 1 – 0 loss to Phoenix Red earlier in the season who held that spot. It would seem that both Rush and Phoenix Red would continue to battle for those spots throughout the season. In semi-final action, Rush would face that same Phoenix Red and, this time, would emerge with a 1 – 0 win to face the undefeated Roadrunners team in the finals. In the Gold Medal Final, Rush would work hard but unsuccessfuly against a determined and more experienced Roadrunners team who were trying to work their way back up to B-League after being relegated in 2015. Nevertheless, it was an awesome season for the Rush team, finishing in fantasic 2nd place in C-league!

Sonics had a tremendous 2016 outdoor season, which followed their breakout indoor season. The team finished the season on a high note in a thrilling sudden death shootout competition in the Bronze Medal Match against Cougars-1.
