Our Fort McMurray Ringette Families

ymmfire

The Ringette Alberta community is thinking of our Fort McMurray Ringette Association Families during this difficult time. We have compiled a few ways to help those displaced by the fires below:

If you have accommodations available and can take in displaced families, please visit this website: http://ymmfire.ca/

If you can donate, the Red Cross is accepting monetary donations here: https://donate.redcross.ca/ea-action/action…

OR you can text REDCROSS to 30333 to donate $5

Edmonton Emergency Relief Services has put out a call for donations and volunteers. Specifically, they are collecting diapers, baby wipes, NEW toiletries (such as soap, shampoo, tampons, toothpaste etc.) and NEW socks and underwear. Please don’t bring them random old stuff! Take your donations, NOT to the Expo Centre, but to the ERS offices, downtown at 10255 104th Street. They will distribute them where they are needed most. If you would like to volunteer, please call 780-428-4422. Nicole Geoffrey is the contact there and says that if you don’t get an answer right away, please leave a message, and they’ll get back to you.

Edmonton Expo Centre has been opened up for evacuees. More info here: http://www.northlands.com/fort-mcmurray-evacuees/

Ringette Alberta has offered any kind of assistance directly to our Ringette families. We will keep everyone posted if there are any direct ways our Ringette community can help.

U19AA Team Alberta takes Bronze at Nationals 2016

Written by Elizabeth Merritt

Fifteen Alberta teams from U16AA, U19AA, and National Ringette League (NRL) made the trip to London, Ont. for the 2016 Canadian Ringette Championships.

Of the 15 teams six competed in the U16, six in U19, and three in the NRL.

Games were exciting to watch and the tournament showcased some amazing competition between teams.

The bronze medal U19 game was a close back and forth game between Team Alberta and Ontario’s Nepean Ravens. Team Alberta’s Kristin Demale opened the scoring four minutes and fifty-five seconds into the game. She followed it up with a second goal twelve minutes and forty seconds in. Following her second goal, Nepean scored nine seconds later. Goals went back and forth until the end of the first period for a score of 3-2 at half time.

Nepean tied the game two minutes and forty-four seconds into the second period. MacKenzie Lindholm took the lead back with what turned out to be the winning goal at fourteen minutes and twenty-seven seconds into the second period. The final score was 6-3 for Team Alberta.
