On July 1st. 2017 Bothwell is celebrating 150 years of history. Part of that rich history is none other than that of Bothwell Minor Hockey. Established for the 1973-74 season Bothwell Minor Hockey quickly rose to become one of the most successful small town organizations in the province.
It is for that reason that we intend to hold a minor hockey reunion in conjunction with the towns celebration. We are inviting any-7one who has had any association with our minor organization to join us on this day.
We will gather in the morning of Sat. July 1st. 10 AM at the Bothwell Area Sport Centre.
Name tags will be provided with registration and memorabilia will be on display. Mingling and meeting old acquaintances will begin immediately.
Ceremony will commence at 11:30 AM which will include guest speaker Brian Wiseman coach of UofM Wolverines Hockey Club.
We intend to conclude our portion of the celebration by 1PM, so those in attendance can enjoy all the events that are scheduled during the afternoon and evening.
We encourage everyone to keep their name tags on for the day and continue the reunion comradery throughout.
