Dear HWBC Membership
First and foremost, Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays, and on behalf of the entire board, we wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2024! Let's make it the best year yet!
Now for some club news: We have a hockey trip! As you saw on the front page of our website, the HWBC is going to Newark, NJ on Saturday, March 9, 2024, to watch the New Jersey Devils host the Carolina Hurricanes. Round trip bus transportation, plus a lower bowl seat to the game is just $182, and is available by sending a check or money order to the club's PO Box. Please note, there is a deadline for the trip, all monies for the trip must be in by January 31, 2024. If you have any questions about the trip, please reach out to myself or any board member.
A friendly reminder that it’s time to renew membership dues. Dues for the season are $10 and can be paid online at www.whalersbc.org, by check or money order, sent to HWBC, PO Box 273, Hartford, CT 06141, or in person at a membership meeting.
Regular membership meetings will resume in January, and as a reminder, to eliminate the possibility of cancelling due to weather, the Board of the club has decided to have the January, February and March membership meetings on Zoom. Please save January 8, February 12 and March 11 on your calendars, as they will be the dates for these winter membership meetings.
As you may be aware, there has been a change in the St. Patrick's Day parade schedule, it has been moved up to March 9, 2024 on your calendar. That is the day the HWBC will march in Hartford's St. Patrick's Day parade, the day where we all wear our green and blue, and remind everyone that we are still a NHL city, and that we want our team back! It is my hope that for those that can't join us on the hockey trip, they will attend the parade instead.
April 13, incredibly, will mark 27 years(!) since the Whalers last game in Hartford. The club is planning on holding our annual FANiversary party on that date, please keep this date open so you can join us at a location to be announced.
The board thanks you for your continued loyalty, and as always, if you have any suggestions as to how to improve the club, please do not hesitate to contact myself, or any other board member.
