SWORDS NIGHT AT THE CYCLONES OPENING NIGHT (OCTOBER 15, 2016)

SWORDS NIGHT AT THE CYCLONES – OPENING NIGHT (OCTOBER 15, 2016)

The Cincinnati Swords and the Cincinnati Cyclones are pleased to announce a special evening of fun and hockey for our families.  Saturday, October 15 is opening night for the Cyclones.  We have been invited to participate and we could not be more pleased.

The Cyclones are offering us discounted tickets PLUS at the conclusion of the game all the Swords players are invited to participate in an open skate on the "big ice" at U.S. Bank Arena.  As an added bonus, opening night is also $1 hot dog, pizza, sodas and beer night!

Our Mites will be center ice for the opening ceremonies – what a special honor to kick off their hockey careers!  The kids will line the goal line and JD will announce each player and then do Cyclones player introductions.  

The Cyclones are providing us with tickets to sell at a reduced cost this Saturday, September 24 at Sports Plus from 11am to 1pm.  All tickets will be $10 (online purchases will be $11/ticket) vs the general admission price of $15-$27.50. 

Want to sit with another family or together as a team?  Let us know how many tickets you want and we will be sure to put them aside for you.  We must sell the tickets in order so we do not have gaps and unsold seats.  If you would like to buy directly from the Cyclones and use a credit card for payment you can use this link:  https://groupmatics.events/swordshockey

We are so very excited to work with the Cyclones on a family-fun evening for the Swords!

SWORDS KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM

 The Kroger Co. has renewed their Community Rewards program for the 2016-17 year.  ALL CURRENT PARTICIPANTS must re-enroll to continue earning community rewards.  To re-enroll log into your Kroger account and on the Account Summary page under "Community Rewards" at the bottom you have the option to re-enroll.  Please be sure your organization is listed as Queen City Hockey Association and the NPO number is 81074 as there are several Queen City Hockey Association listings.  Your re-enrollment period will begin May 1 even if you re-enroll now.  This re-enrollment does not have an impact on your 2015-16 account.

If you have not participated in the past but would like to for the 2016-17 season details on the program and how to enroll are listed below.

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:
 
The Cincinnati Swords have enrolled in the Kroger Community Rewards program for the upcoming year and are pleased to offer ALL members the opportunity to participate.  You must register your Kroger Plus Card Number online and select Queen City Hockey Association (NPO Number 81074) as your participating organization (see detailed instructions below).  Once you are registered, you only need to use your Kroger Plus card and you will accumulate rewards.  Quarterly, Kroger will distribute $1,000,000 to all participating organizations based on their percentage of spending.  Our allocation of the Kroger funds is outlined below.
 
We hope that all Swords families will participate to help offset their hockey costs.  If you have any questions, please email Melanie Luft at or call 513-407-0222.  You must register by May 1 to maximize your benefits.  You must register with the NPO number 81074; old CAHA or Queen City team participation numbers are void.
 
DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS:
 
The Kroger Co. will distribute funds on a quarterly basis with statements and donations being sent on or before September 15, December 15, March 15 and June 15. 
 
Families will need to provide an email copy of Kroger funds earned each quarter and funds will be applied directly to a skater's program.  Funds can be used for any Swords or Sabres online registration.  Your friends and family may also sign up on your behalf but will need to provide the necessary information to us each quarter for you to receive credit.

 If a skater’s family decides to no longer participate with Queen City Hockey Association  and has outstanding funds, all funds will be allocated to the general fund as we are not allowed to distribution funds to individuals and all funds must be used for our organization’s purpose which is youth hockey.  Funds can be held for up to four cycles.  After that, any unused funds will be transferred to the general fund.
