50/50 NEWS

Welcome to the 2023-24 hockey season!! We would like to tell you about an amazing way to help reduce the cost of hockey. Your team is part of the successful Cape Breton Minor Hockey Partner's 50-50 group. The following Minor Hockey Associations (Blizzard Female Hockey, Cape Breton County, & Sydney) as well as Major Teams (CB Lynx, CB Jets, Joneljim Cougars, Mitsubishi Rush, Membertou Jr. Miners) have joined forces to create better hockey opportunities through the funds generated from ticket sales. 


Tickets are $1 each and there are 10 tickets in a book.


For every ticket sold by minor hockey players:

• $0.50 goes to the winner
• $0.25 goes to the player
• $0.20 goes to the association (for development, cost reduction, extra ice times, etc.)
• $0.05 goes to administration costs (tickets, printing, supplies, workers, etc.)

Ticket PICK-UP for REGISTERED PLAYERS ONLY is on the following dates at the Membertou Sport and Wellness Centre:

• Wednesday Sept 6th - 5:30 - 7:30 pm 
• Thursday Sept 7th - 5:30 - 7:30 pm 
• Friday Sept 8th - 5:30 - 6:30 pm 
• Saturday Sept 9th  10am - 12 pm (noon)
• Tuesday Sept 12th - 5:30 - 7:30 pm 
• Wednesday Sept 13th - 5:30 - 7:30 pm 
• Thursday Sept 14th - 5:30 - 7:30 pm 



PLAYERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL TICKETS TAKEN OUT.  Please take what you need weekly so we do not have an abundance of extra tickets at the end of the season.  It is also less likely they are to be lost or misplaced this way. There is a ten cent per ticket charge for unreturned tickets at the end of season.


DRAW VOLUNTEERS - There is an opportunity to earn $40 per shift if you volunteer to work the weekly draws.  It is a time commitment of approximately 4 hours on ticket draw dates.  Shifts are divided on a rotational basis based on your availability and need for volunteers. You can email smhacathy@eastlink.ca to be added to the volunteer list. Money is credited at the end of the season to your child's player account. 


Draws take place every Sunday at approximately 4 p.m. The first draw of the season is Sunday, September 24th, 2023.  There will be 27 draws this season ending on Sunday, March 31, 2024.

Happy Selling!!!
