I've been doing fundraisers for 3 years now, and the most profitable is a liquor draw.
Basically spend $200 on various bottles of booze, and sell tickets for the draw. 3 tickets for $5, and you'll need to sell 40 tickets to break even. That's like 4 per team member to break even. Everyone loves the chance to get a $30 bottle of Rum for $5.

With 15 team members last season we made almost $1500 on the booze drive alone, and that's after taking into account the $300 in booze we offered.

For league fees most guys will just pay up. But a booze drive could cut those costs by a few hundred bucks, and you don't even have to stand outside of the Save On selling apples.

I'd rather just pay the league fees than fundraise for it. There's so much planning/logistics involved with fundraisers that unless the whole team is paid for, it's not worth it.

For jerseys, I think it's easier to find sponsors than it is to do a fundraiser.

Obviously my personal opinion.

*edit - that raffle idea is pretty good. Liquor might get sticky if govt gets knowledge of it.. iPad is another good option.

I played a scrimmage with a 19+ div A team last night.
Talk about skill, they had me moving in net faster than I have in a long time. And man, could they ever shoot the puck. Every one of the guys had a wicked shot, and was able to place it in the corners. I played well, but as you can see my glove hand timing was a bit off.

You know it's a hard shot when it bruises you through the equipment.


The funny thing is, I don't bruise easily at all.

Hey I've got a quick question guys, would I be able to play as a skater if I am a goalie on the roster list of my team for Ice 604 and vice versa? I can't seem to find it on the ice604 website

Our backup goalie plays out as well. If you're on the roster it's not an issue because you're insured.

damn son.

Time to get a new C/A! LOL.

I hate those shots. I Get them too, cuz the CA's don't really cover that area enough. Another one that kills is when I get one on my blocker arm, same area but opposite side. =(

That was an awesome skate hotjoint.
I'm still glowing off that killer 2 pad stack. Couldn't wipe the smile off my face after that one.
