President's Award, On Ice Volunteers, and a Final Farewell to The 2019/2020 Season
Volunteers are essential to all organizations. The selfless commitment and efforts of these volunteers should be acknowledged and recognized at this time. The members of the Aces Executive for the 2019-2020 Season were: President - Jamie Antonio, Past President - Jason Clarke, Vice President - Scott Wildgust, Treasurer - Steve Campbell, Registrar - Carey Rau, Ice Scheduler/Webmaster - Jan Ballantyne, Director of Player/Coach Development - Andrew Taylor, Equipment Manager - Rob Mogk,


League Liaison - Joe Tigani, Secretary - Kim Campbell, Sponsorship - Darcy Helson, Rep Convenor - Sean Cameron, Tournament Directors Terry Soper and Chris Taylor, Special Events Coordinators - Nicole Blowes and Brianne Smith, and Directors at Large - Jason Dietz, Fiona Kipfer, Dennis Aarts, Jeremy Brock, Jamie Gethke, Amy Taylor, Megan Howe. This dedicated group of volunteers gives up countless hours and the Aces Organization appreciates your time and efforts this year.

Each year, the association President selects one individual to receive the President’s Award. Selection is based on the individual who has made the most significant contribution to the Aces community through their participation and leadership on the Executive. For the 2019/2020 Season, I am happy to present the President's Award to Sean Cameron. This past season Sean took on the task of organizing the new half ice Novice program, he is our Rep Convenor, Banquet organizer, he helped with the tournament and, on top of all that, he was the head Coach of our Atom A team and Assistant coach of our Peewee BB team. Thank you and congratulations Sean!

There are also a dedicated group of young ladies that spend their time with individual teams throughout the year. Their dedication is key to helping out the coaching staff run smooth practices while also providing mentorship to the individual girls. The coaches, and Aces organization would like to thank the following:

Meg Feore - Humphrey Fleet Service Atom A

Avery Nickel - Rod Smith Financial Atom B

Avery Thurston - Taylor Fluid Systems PeeWee BB

Ally Wheal - Abtron Electric PeeWee C

Every year we say goodbye to a group of ladies that have spent many years going through the Aces system. We like to recognize their commitment to the Aces and we wish them all well as they continue with life, their education, and hockey.

The Aces organization have always been blessed with dedicated coaches, volunteers, and training staff. This season brought the end to illustrious careers of some of the best coaches the Aces have had. These people have been pillars of the community and have spent countless hours on and off the ice with so many fine Aces throughout the years. The Aces organization would like to thank the legendary Jason Clarke and Rob Gilchrist for 11 years of coaching. Congratulations to Glen Dunseith for 9 years of service. No team is complete with out the toughest job on the staff, the team manager, Kirsten Gilchrist. The four of you have lead by examples over the years and the line up of girls is very long to say thank you. You've all made a huge impact on a lot of lives!

This year there were a lot of first's for the Aces. Whether it be the Novice teams stepping on the ice for the first time and dawning the famed "red jump suit." Or how this entire season ended with an abrupt halt, the Aces organization has, and will, continue to grow. We have built a fantastic community that supports each other and every single girl that goes out on the ice wearing the Aces logo. We want to wish everyone good health, and we all are hoping for the safe start to the 2020/2021 season.

Congratulations to everyone, it was a fantastic year.
