PIHL - WPHOA Partnership http://www.wphoa.com/news/72-pihl-wphoa-partnership http://www.wphoa.com/news/72-pihl-wphoa-partnership

Dear WPHOA Members,

It is with extreme enthusiasm and delight that I am able to announce to you that WPHOA has reached an agreement to re-establish our partnership with the PIHL for the upcoming season!  This restores WPHOA as the primary provider of officiating services for all PIHL games in the Pittsburgh, Wheeling, Morgantown, Johnstown, Altoona, and surrounding areas.  WPHOA also intends to work closely with Erie Ice Referees Inc (EIRI) regarding the games in Northwestern Pennsylvania, as WPHOA and EIRI are also discussing a formal partnership for this season.

While it is the hope of both WPHOA and the PIHL that we are able to extend into future seasons and multi-year contracts, we are starting with a one-year contract for the 2013-14 season.  It is our association’s duty during this term to successfully apply all of the positive changes (and more) that we have made over the past year into our PIHL operations.  Our gameday performance will be our biggest measuring stick for the upcoming season, which will then lead to a continued partnership with the PIHL for many years to come.  The mission of each of us should be to see that through by way of our standards, our professionalism, and our consistency.

Please read the attached FAQ for further information on this partnership.  With this deal in place, I now look forward to working with all of you on the most-successful year WPHOA has ever experienced.

Another year gone and another successful Zebra Cup in the books. Once again officials from the large cities and small towns of northeast America gathered in the south hills of Pittsburgh for what has quickly become the closing highlight of the season. Years past have seen strangers become teammates, teammates become friends, and good times had by all. The 2013 Zebra Cup was no different.

Roger Oldaker: Father and Friend http://www.wphoa.com/news/52-roger-oldaker-father-and-friend http://www.wphoa.com/news/52-roger-oldaker-father-and-friend


I am honored to say that I am the person responsible for hiring Roger Oldaker as a coach with the Canon-McMillan Hockey Association, a job and organization that became near and dear to his heart. I’m even more honored to say that Roger became one of my closest friends from that time and beyond. I can best sum up Roger by describing my relationship with Roger’s son Brett.
