Rideaus Alumni Scoreclock 2017
2017 will not only mark Canada’s 150th anniversary but also the 50th anniversary of our local team.
This is where the Rideaus Alumni, Families and Friends can come in – to mark our 50th anniversary season it is our hope to raise funds to install a new, centre ice hanging, score clock/scoreboard in the arena. It is our ambitious goal to raise $50,000 through this Go Fund Me Page to honour our “old tin barn” and purchase what will be named the RIDEAUS ALUMNI SCORE CLOCK. It won’t be easy, but through social media and your help we truly believe we can reach out to thousands upon thousands of people that can donate and just important “ spread the word”.
Our goal is to secure the funds, order the clock and have it installed by SEPT 2017, then unveiling the clock at our RIDEAUS 50th anniversary party to be held the night of our team’s regular season home opener. This can make for one heck of our party, let’s make it happen !
Ideas that have been suggested for Alumni weekend :
- FRIDAY SEPT. 8th/2017 – RIDEAUS regular season home opener.
- SAT. SEPT . 9th - 8 am to 11 am Golf then lunch 11 am to 1 pm – come to golf, or just come for lunch.
§ 2:30 – 4 pm Alumni game (s), depending on #’s 1 or 2 games.
§ 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm – tail gate party at the arena, BBQ refreshments. 5:00 to 6:00 free Family skating.
§ 7 pm RIDEAUS game, “dedication of scorecloack”, including opening puck drop with Alumni Reps, League and Village Reps.
- SUN. SEPT 10th – brunch buffet 10 am to noon (. Chance to visit with friends again before everywhere hits the road.
The sooner we hit our goal, the sooner we can order the scoreclock and plan our Alumni Celebration.

Don't wait, Don't hesitate, Tomorrow is too late !
To those that have donated, we thank you, now let's reach out and nudge along the others, we know you all want to get on board.
Sorry but so many have "talked" and said what a great idea but nobody is doing anything about.
Going to use the next 30 days to get this idea moving.
If we can't, we have to "re-adjust" or thinking, set a smaller goal, but remember this is not just a fund raising GOAL, it is the whole 50th Anniversary Alumni Weekend that we are looking to you for SUPPORT !
