Rossland Trail Minor Hockey Association – Date set for vote

The Rossland-Trail Minor Hockey executive met Tuesday night to determine its next step in the amalgamation process with Beaver Valley.

The Rossland-Trail Minor Hockey executive met Tuesday night to determine its next step in the amalgamation process with Beaver Valley.

After 87 per cent of members from Beaver Valley Minor Hockey voted last month to merge with RTMHA and create a Greater Trail Minor Hockey Association, RTMHA responded by setting a date for its own vote.

On June 27 members of  RTMHA will have an opportunity to cast a ballot on three different resolutions.

The first addresses changing the RTMHA name to Greater Trail Minor Hockey Association. The second resolution accepts the new constitution, and the third decides on the merger with BVMHA.

All residents of Rossland and Trail can vote, but first must become a member by paying a $1 membership fee at the ballot.

Last year RTMHA voted 86 per cent in favour of amalgamation, but was nullified when BVMHA’s vote did not pass the resolution to merge.

The meeting will take place at 7 p.m. in the MacIntyre Room at the Trail Memorial Centre.
