Region 4 Meeting – Joe – Hartmeyer is improving their Rink to get a larger sheet of
ice. Sun Prairie is looking at adding on another ice sheet. Oregon is building an ice
rink. Team outlook – Jeremy will be nominated as VP for Region 4 next year. Jeremy
spoke with Waunakee and Dodgeville regarding teams.
Midgets – Waunakee is committed to a program with us for next year. Waunakee will
have about 5-7 skaters. Also include Middleton, which will have about 2 skaters
needing a place to go.
Bantams – work with Waunakee & Dodgeville
Peewees – Waunakee is just shy of 2 teams. A thought is to have everyone try out and
have the top team play at Waunakee (they are a level 2) and the other team play a as a
Sauk Prairie team.
Squirts – Dodgeville has an issue with players. A possibility is having 3 teams, 1
Dodgeville and 2 Sauk Prairie teams.
WAHA is supportive of co-oping with other associations. Jamie has a committee that
will work on this.
Concessions – Everything is pretty well cleaned out. In good shape.
Have 3 names of people interested in Board positions. Have to have a vote of the
members. Annual Business Meeting – need to pick a Saturday. Saturday, April 19.
Will ask Becky H. to send out a communication to the membership and ask them to
drop off their ballot at the rink between 9 am and Noon.
