The 8th annual King of The Wheels is coming up and emails were sent out to team captains.  The deadline for registration and payment is November 21st.  It will be held at Skate Safe in Old Bethpage from December 5th to December 16th.  Each team will play one day the 1st week (round robin) and one day the 2nd week (playoffs).  All teams will play 3 games the first day and at least 2 games the second day.

Forms can be found here: Flyer and Registration Form

The round robin will be played from December 5th to December 9th.  Please list in order what days are best for your house on the registration form.  Please indicate any days that don’t work for your house that week on your registration form as well.  We are planning on using Wednesday December 7th, Thursday December 8th and Friday December 9th for the round robin.  If the rink schedule changes or we have an increase in teams from last year then we will use different or additional days. Once the schedule is made it can’t be changed.

Please check on any house functions, boys night outs, weddings, ice hockey schedule and anything else that might cause a conflict. The playoffs will be held December 12th to December 16th and the day you play will be determined by how your team does in the round robin.

Playoffs could be any day the week of December 12th.  It is looking like Thursday December 15th and Friday December 16th but these dates could change due to the rinks schedule.  An additional day may be added if needed to accommodate more teams.

The rink is under new management so some things have changed and we might need to adjust to the new management.  That is why I’m uncertain of some of the days.  They need to see what rink time on what days they need for kids clinics and classes they offer every day.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT GAMES COULD START AT 8AM THIS YEAR FOR BOTH ROUND ROBIN AND PLAYOFFS

We are doing a pre-order for T-shirts again this year.  We are taking Pre-orders to help reduce the price and over ordering.  The form for this years shirts will be sent out shortly as we are still working on the design of the shirt.  Any pre-orderd shirts will be $10 except for xxl which is $12.  Any shirt purchased at the rink will be $15 ($17 for xxl).
Please mail your pre-order shirt form with the registration form as pre-orders are due by November 21st as well.  T-shirts and registration payment can be on one check or two seperate.  However you want to handle it.  The shirts will be 50/50 blend.
