Re: Cost For Teams

All teams in the West contract a bus company and a few have bought their own buses over the last 20 years to provide transportation for most away games (exception is where it is an easy traveling distance where players or parents can drive. When there was inter-conference play all teas had buses to ...

Re: GOJHL and their low standards

Back to the original thread of why the LaSalle-Chatham first playoff game was not entered properly and fixed as soon as some people would have liked. First, the LaSalle PS score keeper used the drop down imput box to indicate the tyoe of game and marked it as a regular season game instead of a playo...

Re: 19/20 Season Predictions

I was at the Maroons-Flyers game. Both clubs are strong. Chatham's Rychel-Robinson-Power line did all the Maroons' damage, but Chatham will have to depend more other players than just that one line. Both teams delivered some good hits - and for the Maroons the rookies did receive plenty of ice time....

Re: St. Marys

A history lesson on St. Marys franchise: In 1956/57 the Lincs along with Woodstock entered the OHA West replacing New Hamburg and Simcoe. (Between that tie and 1964/65 Stratford, Preston, Goderich, Ingersoll and Tillsonburg also played in the West.) St. Marys entered the Central B loop in 1964/65 an...

Re: Season Schedule

The GOJHL schedule is not usually done until mid-July. I would be very surprised if it has been completed. Most seasons (except last year) it is confirmed and finalized by the end of July and seldom posted until a week before Kick-off. Fans can only hope that perhaps there is a policy change and the...

Re: Waterloo, London Suthy Finals

Since 1980 only three other SC finals have went to 7 games: in 1981/82 St. MIchaels beat Sarnia; in 1997/98- Niagara Falls edged Elmira and...

Falcons new bench boss

The St. Catharines Falcons wasted little time acquiring new head coach after Chris Johnstone stepped down recently. Former Cambridge head coach Dan Fitzgerald takes over. It didn't take the club long to fill the vacancy.
Good or bad? Any views on the change?

For years we have all seen some really shoddy work done by Pointstreak operators - much of it is simply the fact that no-one seems to take accurate notes and proof read what goes online.

Re: Off season news

The main reason Riggin was head coach was because he worked for free. Anyone seriously interested in the head coaching job will want compensation - that puts an onus on the club's GM and the Rockets' fundraising. So the question now is: experienced coach or one with little experience?

Re: Bussing players to road games. Is it worth the cost?

As to using a bus for travel - most Jr. B teams use the comfort of a coach bus to travel to long distance games; when teams are fairly close to each other, it only makes sense to save by having the players drive themselves or get rides to the location. As for Strathroy's radio broadcasts - a couple ...

Re: cleaning house

The person involved notified me of what had happened. The situation there is unfortunate. There are better ways to run an organization but stepping on toes near season's end is rather juvenile. Egos and bias are probably at the root of what is going on. Unfortunately I only know half the story.
