2014 8th Annual Cougars Alumni Game  12/27
Click to enlarge Our 8th Annual Cougars Alumni Game was played at Vallco on December 27, 2014.

Approximately 30 players came out for some ice time, competitive fun, and camaraderie with their former teammates.

Much laughter and a little bit of trash talk was heard throught the rink, as the dark jerseys defeated the light jerseys 20-16.

Thanks to all who came out to join the game, and a very special Thank You to Chris Hathaway, for providing the pizza and making all this possible.

Everyone, without exception, enjoyed being at the game, and everyone is looking forward to doing this again next year!

NORCAL Electronic Scoreboard - a Tutorial  9/5
Please note that Vallco, like all NORCAL clubs, uses the computer-based Electronic Scoreboard for all games.

The touch-screen computer remains at the rink at all times, and is hooked up to the scoreboard right before the game. It is quite easy to use, and we encourage all parents to learn the system.

For your convenience, we are posting a youtube video with detailed instructions on how to use the system.
