The OMHA has provided the amalgamation committee with clarification for tomorrow's vote and we are passing this information along to avoid any potential confusion.
Only those members who's home centre is Cobourg or Port Hope are eligible to vote and you must cast your vote in your home centre. Your home centre is where your child is be eligible to play REP hockey.
Here are a few examples;
If your child is from Port Hope but playing REP as an NRP in Cobourg or on a Cobourg house league team, you must vote in Port Hope.
If your child is from Cobourg but playing on a Port Hope house league team, you must vote in Cobourg.
If your child is from Cobourg but playing AAA or AA elsewhere, you are eligible to vote in Cobourg.
If your child's home centre is not Cobourg (i.e. Baltimore) but plays REP as an NRP or in the Cobourg house league, you are ineligible to vote.
Some additional voting information;
**If you are rostered to a House League or REP team as a coach/trainer you are eligible to vote. Your spouse could then cast a vote for your child.
**Players 18 years of age, or older may cast their own vote - parent would not be eligible to vote.
**CCHL lifetime members and executive members receive a vote.
**A person may cast only one vote and you must declare your category. i.e. coach, parent, executive, lifetime member.
