July 31, 2019: July Update

Hey Cruisers Family!

Our July Board update has us moving away from the Gala and onto other business related to the club.


Closing off the 2019 Gala

This photo is a great summary of the 2019 Gala.


Not only are we closing this year’s event off by capturing feedback but we are also already looking at the first steps for the 2020 Gala.  If you have any feedback or recommendations for next years event please contact fundraising@cruisers-sports.com.


Future Events

The future is bright with many fun and exciting items on the agenda that will keep us occupied for the summer months and into the fall.  Communications have gone out on many of these events over the last few weeks.

Beacham Summer Fun Day.  This event will take place on August 11th at WindReach Farm located at 312 Town Line Rd, Ashburn, ON.  Beacham Summer Fun Day started a number of years ago as day for children of all abilities to come together in memory of Linda Beacham (former Cruisers Sports President) and this year we will continue this tradition. Some of the activities offered will be wagon rides, petting zoo, access to a sensory trail and room, a self-guided scavenger hunt and the farm's museum playground. Snacks and lunch are also provided. If you are 16 and under, come join the fun.

Another fun event is our new Summer Socials for all ages.  This event will take place on Fridays in July and August and free for members/$10 for non-Cruisers.  Each week we will be demonstrating a new activity with a movie night for our last Summer Social. We hope you will come out to join us for a fun evening. Please watch your social media feeds for exact location details!

The Cruisers Annual Charity Golf Tournament is around the corner as well.  This annual fundraising event benefits the club by raising money to help keep our registration fees low.   This event also helps with purchasing specialized equipment for our various programs.  This year the event will take place on Friday, September 14th at the Caledon Country Club located at 2121 Olde Baseline Road, Caledon, ON.  There will be sponsorship and donation opportunities for this event.

This year we need our members help to get new golfers to participate!  All members are welcome, if you are not a golfer but would love to spend a day outdoors supporting Cruisers Sports, we are always looking for volunteers and ambassadors as well.

Last but not least on our agenda was the Annual Cruisers Cup Para Ice Hockey Tournament. Although the details for this event are not yet on our website, we are starting to work on the logistics. This year Ken Hall (founder of the event) will not be in the country at the time of the tournament. Most importantly is the date which you should all mark in your calendars November 1st -3rd at South Fletcher’s Sportsplex located at 500 Ray Lawson Blvd. Brampton, ON.

Any of you who are familiar with the tournament will be excited to hear that Rink 1 is under renovation at this moment and will become a fully accessible rink by the time of our tournament.  These changes were influenced by Ken’s advocating and the fact that the Cruisers Cup tournament is now an important event on the Brampton calendar. More information to come shortly.  If you would like to volunteer your time in any way to help out at the Cruisers Cup please reach out to paraicehockey@cruisers-sports.com.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.


Next month…we will update you on registration for the 2019/20 season.

July 6, 2019: Mark Greedy

Members of the Cruisers Family,




It is with a deeply saddened heart I announce the passing of a member of the Cruisers family -- Mark Greedy passed away on July 2nd.

Mark was a former athlete, and both he and his family were active volunteers with the club. Mark could often be heard alongside the rink boards watching a game, as he cheered on the Cruisers, or encouraging his teammates to play to their fullest potential. He will be greatly missed.


Visitations will be held Monday from 4-9pm and Tuesday from 11am-1pm.
The service will be Tuesday at 1pm with a reception to follow.

Brampton Funeral Home & Cemetery -- 10061 Chinguacousy Road, Brampton ON L7A 0H6

The family is requesting you wear sporting apparel of your choice to honour Mark.


For more information, please visit the Arbor Memorial webpage.
