Beach rugby has long been involved with Ted Reeve Hockey! Alum Rick Chambers is directly involved with TR 65 Reunion. Please contact Rick for more info!!!

The Ted Reeve Hockey Association is celebrating their 65th anniversary the weekend of Oct04 and will be having an alumni party to reunite as many former players that we can. It will be held at the Balmy Beach Club. Please see the attachment for details.

Ted Reeve Hockey Assoc 65th

If you know any former players that are not on the list, please forward this note to them. We are putting together a slide show, so if anyone has pictures, etc. from the past, please let me know or scan them to me. If you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer them. Tickets go on sale the early part of September but we are trying to get as many players/coaches from early years as possible, so the powers to be are giving you a chance to reserve your ticket in advance. There is only a limited number of tickets that can be sold, so send me an email so I can hold a ticket for you.

Request from Huggy! I’m writing to ask for your help by reaching out to your connections on my behalf to inquire about potential paid co-op job opportunities. Currently, I’m searching for a co-op job as a Business Analyst, or similar role with a September 2019 start date. My preference would be an employer within the technology sector or within the technology functional area of a company. I realize that you do not have technology backgrounds but you might have a friend, family member or other connection who does.

I’ve been following your weekly e-mails but haven’t managed to attend a Beach home game yet because I have a Saturday morning class at George Brown College that carries over into the early afternoon.

I’m writing to reach out to the Balmy Beach RFC Alumni for their help. Currently, I’m completing a post-graduate certificate in Information Systems Business Analysis and am required to complete a paid co-op internship.

My goal is to secure a co-op job that is directly or indirectly related to business analysis. The roles in the job postings by my co-op coordinator have been fairly diverse. Mostly, they require using analytical and problem solving, decision making, time management, verbal and written communication, teamwork skills, etc.

I’m searching for a co-op internship to commence this September. To date, I’ve applied to just over 20 positions and have not received a response from an employer for an interview. I’m hoping that there’s someone from the alumni who may know someone who knows someone, etc. that has a suitable employment opportunity within their company. There is a provincial tax credit available to businesses up to a maximum of $3,000.

If there is someone who may be able to help, they can contact me at or connect with me on LinkedIn:

Thank you! Cheers,
Huggy – Up the Beach!!!
