Ice Times Cancelled As a Result of Anti Mask Rally Saturday
As a direct result of the anti mask freedom rally planned at the EECC for this Saturday, the EECC has cancelled all ice times at the complex.

The AMHA board has inquired if we can continue with regularly scheduled ice times on Saturday, that are not taking place around the same time of the planned protest. We will let those teams affected know if anything changes prior to Saturday, but at this time, the cancellations will remain.

In addition, the Town of Aylmer has declared a "State of Emergency." How this will affect our operations beyond Saturday, we are unsure of at this time. However, the board has been clear with its members to date, that if you choose to participate in any AMHA functions at this time, there are certain requirements to be followed. 

1. You must screen your child accurately within 24 hours of your child's ice time. 
2. You must follow the guidelines set fourth by the Ontario Government, the Southwestern Public Health Service, the various sport governing bodies, including Hockey Canada, the OHF and the OMHA, as well as those set out by the EECC.
3. While in the complex, you must behave in a way that does not put the health and safety of fellow participants, our member families', and the EECC staff at risk. 

Though we cannot control what families participate in outside of the complex, the board is in discussions regarding what consequence may be appropriate, should any member bring undue risk to the operations of our association and the health of our members. Our primary concern is the health and safety of our member and their families.

Regardless of your perspective on what is happening in our community, we are simply asking our members to follow a few rules at the rink, and be courteous to each other.
