HHBF Hockey Pool - Deadline Oct 2

Join the HHBF 2019-2020 Regular Season Hockey Pool

It's a great way to cheer on your favourite players, fundraise for the club, maybe win some money, and most importantly, earn bragging rights!

How It Works:

  •  
  • Complete the attached Hockey Pool entry sheet and submit it, along with the payment to the Hockey Pool Folder in the lobby mailbox.
  • Entries can also be completed online at http://HockeyDraft.ca
  • pool username: HHBFHockeyPool
  • pool password: HHBF2019
  • Complete as many entries as you like...ask your family, friends, co-workers, neighbours, and so on! The more entrants we have, the bigger the winnings will be.
  • Cost to enter is $20 per sheet (cheque payable to HHBF)
  • Proceeds will be split between the club and the winners.
  • 1st, 2nd, 3rd, middle and last place will be awarded prizes, the amount to be determined after total proceeds are tallied.
  • For each sheet you submit, $10 will be credited towards your swimmer's fundraising obligation - be sure to write your swimmer's name on the top of all the forms you submit.
  • All entrants will have access to the online pool to track your progress and of course, trash talk your competitors!
Completed forms and payment are due by 5:00pm, Wednesday, October 2. To ensure the draft is fair to all, no entries will be accepted after this date and time. Please allow a few days for all the entries to appear on the website.
