Considering the cancellation of our end of the year banquet, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our Board members for all their hard work this season. These volunteer positions require a huge commitment and countless hours in order to sustain the solid reputation that the Quinte Red Devil organization is known for. It has been my pleasure to work alongside a group of passionate individuals who truly strive to make the minor hockey years in the Quinte region both meaningful and memorable.
Thanks to our coaches and team staff for providing our players with the best development opportunities and learning environments possible. I appreciate all the work that goes on behind the scenes to ensure that things run smoothly and that the players and families are enjoying the hours they spend at the rink. I recognize that no season is ever seamless, but I commend you all for the work you put in for the betterment of our developing hockey players.
To our players, novice to midget, thanks for bringing your best efforts day in and day out. Although the season came to an abrupt and disappointing end, leaving many goals left unattained, it doesn’t take away from all the hard work you put in to get to where you were. There are certainly many successes within the organization that deserve to be celebrated, including our overall organizational record of 271-123-38. The Quinte Red Devils also held the highest record in the ETA organizationally with over half of our nine teams finishing the regular season in first or second place. Our Minor Midgets successfully hosted and captured the OMHA Championship title (back to back!) and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Brent Woods and his team for their commitment and hard work in organizing such a successful weekend. It is with incredible pride that I reflect on the year and what all our QRD teams accomplished. It further suggests that we have a bright future ahead of us.
Although we are all anxious to plan for our next season, the health and well-being of our families is of the utmost concern. We are all uncertain as to how the next few months will unfold but as you are aware, we are following the direction of the OMHA, OHF and Hockey Canada. We will continue to communicate through our public facing website and through our current managers as information becomes available.
