Registration Tuesday for BSLA Hockey Association It's time again to dust off the ice skates and strap on the pads, as the Big Stone Lake Area Hockey Association gets ready for another season of action on the ice. Registration for this year's program will be held Tuesday, Oct. 13 from 7-8 p.m. in the commons area of the Ortonville High School. All children in grades K-12 are eligible, and those children born in 1992 or after are free. The $45 fee covers the cost of registration and basic insurance. Equipment will be on hand to rent for the season for a minimal fee. A parent must also attend to sign a consent form, and a copy of the child's birth certificate must also be provided for registration. Tom Kaye, one of the organizers of the BSLA Hockey Association, stated the area-wide group had about 60 members last year, and he expects to see even more children turn out this season. "Even if kids cannot skate yet, we will be offering a learn to skate program," Kaye said. "The future of this program will be coming from the younger children, so we want to get them started out on the right foot." A new improvement to the Ortonville Ice Skating Rink this year will be a liner to hold the water and make a better skating surface. Kaye says this should make for improved and safer ice for the children this season. Volunteers are still needed for the program, and anyone interested is asked to contact Tom Kaye at 839- 3617.
