Welcome to the Gillette Hockey Association (GHA), home of the Gillette Grizzlies. GHA is an amateur, non-profit 501(c)(3) tax exempt youth hockey organization based in Gillette, Wyoming. The Gillette Grizzlies youth hockey program offers a fun, safe opportunity for Gillette youth to learn the game of hockey.
GHA will be conducting the Gun Raffle fundraiser again this year. Thanks to all of our efforts we raised over $32,000 last year! That goes a long way toward keeping our fees in check. Once again, we were able to keep our registration fees the same.
Raffle ticket pickup will start next week. Tickets will be available for pickup on the following dates:
Rockpile - Monday 19th - 5 p.m.-7 p.m.
Spirit Hall - Tuesday 20th - 5:45 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Spirit Hall - Wednesday 21st - 4:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Rockpile - Monday 26th - 5:30 p.m. - 7:45 p.m.
The raffle will operate similar to the last two years. Each family will need to sell one book of 15 tickets per player. The tickets sell for $20/piece. A deposit check of $300 per book of tickets will need to be given to GHA when ticket books are picked up. The deposit check will be returned when the book(s) are sold. If you don't sell all the tickets in your book, you will get the balance of sold versus unsold tickets (e.g. you sell 10 tickets, you will get $200 back). Tickets are due on March 1st.
New this year will be an incentive program. The top three sellers will receive COLD, HARD CASH!
Top Seller: $300
2nd Most Tickets Sold: $150
3rd Most Tickets Sold: $50
There will be opportunities to sell tickets at Sportsman's Warehouse and other local businesses throughout the season.

The ice at Spirit Hall is ready. Fred and his team at CCPR have been working tirelessly to get the ice ready. Be sure to thank them for all their hard work.
This means that we will start our new practice schedule on Monday. Be sure to check both the Spirit Hall and Campbell County Ice Arena calendars to see when your team(s) will be practicing. If you have any questions, be sure to check with your coaches and team manager.
Here is a message from Fred regarding the new ice.
"In an ice arena setting, when we create a new fresh sheet of ice, the ice will go thru a process of cracking. This is the way the ice expands and settles. This season at spirit hall we made the complete sheet of ice out of RO water. We are seeing and hearing the ice doing the self cracking like we have never seen before. Some of it is very loud.
