Hockey Day in Canada
Saturday February 11th, 2012 is Hockey Day in Ottawa! From 1PM to 3PM your BHCA will be serving free Hot Chocolate at our 3 outdoor rinks, graciously donated by the new Arby’s at the corner of Montreal and Ogilvie roads. Skate on over to one of our three beautifully groomed skating parks: Eastvale rink (between Annunciation of the Lord church, Henry Munroe Middle School and Ecole LaVerendrye), Jasmine rink (located on the east side of the east end of Jasmine between the apartment buildings and Lester B. Pearson High School), and Fairfield rink (located on the west side of St. Gabriel’s church on Appleford). Bring your hockey sticks, pucks and helmets, and join the thousands of residents participating at one of Ottawa’s 237 outdoor rinks.
The North Gloucester Giants/Ottawa Colts Football
The North Gloucester Giants/Ottawa Colts Football Club is recruiting players from Tyke to Midget levels for its upcoming 2012 season. You can register early by contacting the club registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org and visit our website www.nggiants.ca for more information.
The Giants are also hosting a winter football conditioning program for players aged 8 to 14 starting February 16th, 2012. For a very affordable $30 fee for 10 weeks, this program will help improve your speed, agility & ball handling in the off season all while hanging out with old friends or making new ones and having fun once a week!
Even if you have never played before, this is your chance to see if you might enjoy football in regular season.
Please contact Louise, club registrar, email@example.com for more information.
We look forward to having you come join one of Ottawa’s great tackle football teams! GO GIANTS!
Phase 2 of the consultation process is expected to take place in February. Roche-Genevar, the consultant conducting the Environment Assessment will be presenting corridor designs that incorporate mitigation measures (for noise, traffic, etc.) based on input from the Community Values Workshops, web/street surveys and World Café events held in June 2011. When we have more information on dates/times/places, we will send out an e-mail and post on our website.
We are asking that people to be mindful of area road speed limits especially along major thoroughfares such as Eastvale, Ogilvie Rds and those residents that use Casey to get to/from Shefford Road. There have been some close calls with pedestrians/school children these past few months. Note that the majority of our streets have a posted speed limit 40 km per hour.
