Dine To Make A Difference At The Pilot House
We now have a date for our fund raising event at The Pilot House! On Wednesday January 31 from 11 am until 9 pm a portion of all sales, including take out orders, will be donated to the league. The Pilot House is known as “your friendly neighbourhood pub” and they show that in a huge way with their support of local organizations. Share this message with your friends and family and make your plans for lunch, dinner or a snack in the afternoon or after work at The Pilot House. Enjoy the friendly atmosphere, and know that your dining in or taking out IS making a difference for our league and for the community. Our thanks to Troy Gadbois for making this happen.
On Friday February 2, the St. Lawrence College Men’s and Women’s Basketball Teams will be hosting Durham in the last regular season games at the old gym and we are invited to come out to see them play! Free chips, popcorn and drinks will be available, and admission to the games is free for our players, parents, volunteers and their families. The college promises lots of activities and give aways for the crowd to go along with the exciting basketball on display every time these long time rivals meet. The women’s game is at six and the men play at 8. Mark your calendars and we will see you there!!
Kingston Frontenacs Event
On Sunday February 18, 2018 the Kingston Frontenacs will be hosting the Kitchener Rangers at 2 pm at the K Rock Centre. If you order your $15 tickets through the link below, or from us on Game nights in late January, $3 from every ticket sold comes back to the league. Depending on the number of tickets sold, some other incentives kick in that I will tell you about as we near those milestones. I know that some of our players have season tickets with their families, but I encourage you to join us wherever we are to take part in the activities that will be happening as part of any incentives we gain. Here is the link to order your tickets:
Two-Ball Tournament 2017
Date: Sunday November 19, 2017
Location: St. Francis of Assisi School
Time: Doors to the school will be open at 10:30 am for team registration and warm ups. The tournaments will start at 11am. The first groups to play will be the Little Guys and Little Gals entries, followed by the Graduate, Biddy and Girls tournaments. The older groups should be at the school NO LATER THAN 11:45 to register. We will start the second group of tournaments at noon, or whenever the first group is finished.
Cost to enter: $0.00
Rules: You can enter your team of two players from within your division for the tournament on game nights, or at the school November 19. All participants must be registered players from the Pete Petersen Basketball League. All teams are guaranteed a minimum of two games. Two teams shoot at opposite ends of the court. Mats on the floor indicate the point value for shots made from that mat. Players must alternate shots (player 1 shoots, then player 2), and individual players or the team cannot shoot from the same place on the floor two shots in a row. We will play music for one minute, and the team that has the most points at the end of that minute wins that game and advances in the tournament.
FIVE GUYS DINE TO DONATE
On Wednesday November 15, 2017 Five Guys Burgers and Fries will be hosting a Dine to Donate Fundraising Event at their location at 770 Gardiners Road.

November 24 UPDATE – $422 was raised from sales at the restaurant November 15. Adding in the $90 in personal donations made at the event and the total for this Fund raiser was $512. Our thanks to everyone that supported this event, and to Tom Doyle and his staff at Five Guys for their professionalism and hard work to make the event run smoothly!
