6 ’1 ‘ he was posted. Isnici spun NEW The Richmond Hill Arena As- sociation has acquired the ser- vices of William McDerment as Manager of the Richmond Hill Arena. He comes to the village with a great deal of experience as an arena manager. Before the war he was manager of the Ravina Gardens in Toronto. hand- ling the Arena and the Swim- ming Pool. During the War he served with the RCAF for seven years as Barrack;0ificer and su- pervised the various sporting ac- tivities of the stations to which After leaving the Air Force he spent six years as Manager of the Collingwood Community Arena. Mr. McDer- ment did an excellent job at Collingwood where he introduc- ed and promoted professional wrestling. In co-operation with the Canadian Legion his Arena operated Bingos which drew re- cord crowds. He also introduc- ed Little N.H.L. Pee Wee Hock- ey with ten teams operating on a regular schedule. This gave all the boys a chance to play hock~ ey. During his stay in Coiling- wood. “Mac's” Arena teams won seven Ontario Hockey cham- pionships. The Association wel- comes Mr. McDerment to Rich- mond Hill and they feel that he will contribute a great deal to Community Recreation 'by his skillful operation of the Arena. The Association expects to have ice by October 15 and the ice will be in for approximately six months. This is a welcome change from the 10 or so days of Skating that we used to get with natural ice. A few renovations have been going on at the Arena. There will be four new dressing rooms each equipped with a shower. Hockey players will appreciate this convenience. There also will be two dressing rooms for pub- ,. WILLIAM McDERMENT, M.B.E. Manager Richmond Hill Arena lic skaters. The entrance to the Arena will be wider to facilitate a better movement of crowds. Special storage cupboards will be installed for the minor hock- ey teams to store their equip- ment. Something new in the sched- ule will be “Tiny Tots" days in which children accompanied by an instructor (probably a par- ent) can learn to skate. All boys interested in playing hockey will get a chance in the Little N.H.L. group which takes in the ages from 8 to 12. The whole idea of this league will be to see that the players get a chance to get on the ice no matter how good or poor their ability. Of course. the girls will probably be inter- ested in the figure skating. and at present the club will operate seven hours a week with profes- sional instruction. A plan that has been used suc- cessfully in other towns is the one whereby the children get free public skating sponsored by a local merchant or merchants. When any item is purchased at a local store you get a free pass for an hour's skating at the Ar- ena. This has possibilities in Richmond Hill. Hockey of the Junior calibre is still a question mark at the time of this writing, but we would be classified as Junior D and would be in" a lea- gue with Aurora, Beeton, Noble- ton, Stoufi'ville and ,Unionville. The Association is interested in hearing from any terested in promoting hockey. If interested. contact Mr. Mc- Derment at the Arena, TUrner 4-1368. Well it should be a good year with everybody getting a chance to skate and to watch hockey and carnivals without worrying about the weather as in the past. sponsors in~ “Hilltop Sports” Bob McCui-ry On Monday September 12th the Richmond Hill Boy's Athletic Society hcld its first meeting of the school year to elect new officers for the coming season in sports.

It is divid- ed into Junior and Senior age groups. thereby making available those sports such as basketball. volleyball, soccer hockey etc. to all those who wish to compete The organization endeavours to provide adequate sports for a school on a shift system. To give a chance for sports to all. irregardless of their excell in this field.
