   2021 BHA Hiking Challenge

Dear BHA Families,

 

It’s been an interesting year and a half where change has become the new normal.  Within the BHA we were happy to play half of a hockey season, with the focus on getting the kids back out on the ice and being part of a team.  In most cases the teams were able to have a few games, and we were happy to welcome back our out-of-state players towards the end.  One thing that did not happen, however, was the Green Mountain Girls Hockey Tournament, which is the BHA’s primary fundraiser.  In a normal year, hosting that tournament generates 10% of our annual budget, which allows us to keep our player fees the lowest in the area.

Looking towards the 2021-2022 season we expect to be able to return to a normal hockey season with full rosters, out-of-state games, and a typical calendar and schedule.  Although we do hope to host the Green Mountain Girls Hockey Tournament in 2022, we don’t expect it to operate at full capacity the way that it has in years past.  So, in preparation for that the BHA has gotten creative with a few new fundraising ideas.  The first of which is the BHA Hiking Challenge.

The goals of the BHA Hiking Challenge are the following:

  1. Encourage kids and families to take advantage of the abundance of open space we have here in the tri-state area.
  2. Motivate our kids to get outside and participate in 60 minutes of active play as often as possible.
  3. Raise additional funds for the BHA so that we can continue to offer youth hockey at a reasonable cost while still offering scholarships and making the sport accessible to everyone in the community.

The idea is that you share these materials with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. and ask them to sponsor your child in achieving these goals.  As a sponsor they will challenge your child to complete a selection of hikes in the tri-state area (or beyond).  Your child (and family hopefully) will then have until next fall (likely around the time that our rink opens) to complete as many hikes as they can and collect their pledged funds from sponsors.  We hope that the outcome of this will be a healthier BHA community in all aspects.

To help facilitate this challenge we have organized the following materials which we hope you will find useful:

  1. A list of various family hikes in the tri-state area with facts, ratings, locations, and descriptions.
  2. A sponsorship sheet which you can share with family, friends, etc. so that they may challenge and sponsor your children in this event.

All of these materials will be posted to the BHA web page along with Facebook for participants to reference and share.  Also, they will continue to be updated with new content as the challenge continues.

Along the way we’ll be organizing group hikes, sharing favorite hikes to Facebook, adding new hikes to the list, etc.  We hope that you’ll participate as well by sharing photos of your family hikes, suggesting new hikes for the list, and so forth.  We’ll be active on social media throughout this challenge and hope that you will be as well.

We hope that you will take this challenge to build a healthier BHA community and we’ll see you at the start of a new hockey season in the Fall.

 

Sincerely,

The Brattleboro Hockey Association
