27th AprKIngsbridge And Salcombe HC: Team Astro row the Atlantic

Spectacular news!
Four members of Kingsbridge and Salcombe Ladies HC are building up to meet a fantastic challenge in a bid to raise funds for Devon Air Ambulance.
As "Team Astro to Atlantic", four hockey players from Kingsbridge and Salcombe Hockey Club, Devon are set to swap their hockey sticks for oars to row 3000 miles across the Atlantic from La Gomera to Antigua as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in December 2018.
In order to get to the start line they are seeking both product and financial sponsorship.
Can the hockey community of Devon help them to meet the challenge?
Please read on!
As part of the challenge, the ladies aim to break the world record for a female 4 crossing which currently stands at 34 days. They wish to empower women and prove that women are capable of anything, especially being 4 hockey players with no rowing experience!
The 2017 race has now reached its conclusion and of the 27 teams entered, only 3 were female. A scary statistic which they would love to challenge and inspire more women to step outside their comfort zones.
To cross the Atlantic is a huge physical and mental feat and requires significant preparation and training. The team will be charting it's training on social media platforms so would love any promotional support the hockey family in Devon and beyond can offer.
The team's chosen charity for the challenge is Devon Air Ambulance and once they have secured funds to reach the start line the team hopes to raise a significant amount of money for this very worthy cause.

1st Oct (2017)Orders from Silver FX

Message from Silver FX
Unfortunately, back in August, we had some issues with our computer systems which has caused our orders to be up to 2 weeks late. We were hoping that by now it would have all been caught up but unfortunately because of the delays caused by our computer systems, it has now delayed the factory too. Orders are being completed as soon as possible but there is a chance that this could affect October orders too, but not to the same extent. You may also have received part orders, as we are sending items out as soon as we’re getting them in as to get the items out to you all as soon as possible.
We are hoping that all orders will be caught up by the end of the month, but any questions, please let Silver FX know direct and they will look into it for you asap.

10th Feb (2010)Claiming Expenses for Cancelled Fixtures

If a game is cancelled and your have been appointed to it by DHUA please DO NOT enter any Match Feedback, including any transport costs incurred for the fixture in question as it causes all sorts of problems when we try an reappoint to the fixture in the future.

If you do incur any transport costs (e.g. because you travelled to the game and it was then abandoned before it was completed, cancelled before you got there, etc.) then please email the DHUA Treasurer with details of your transport costs (if applicable).

Also copy me in the DHUA Appointments Secretary so that your appointment for this game can be removed.
