Dear Parents & Players,
In celebration of our departing Head Coach, Csaba Kercso-Magos, we invite all AIHA members to attend a farewell event this Saturday 15th June at Paradice Avondale. Everyone is welcome, whether you are a player, parent, friend or family member or just love watching ice hockey!
Come and say goodbye to Csaba as we celebrate his time serving the AIHA community with a free ice skate, a group photo on the ice, free drink on entry*, and a free AIHA All Star game, made up of our top representative and local NZIHL players.
Event Schedule – Saturday 15th June at Paradice Avondale:
- 3:30pm – Doors open / arrive
- 4:15pm – Free ice skate for all who turn up
- 4:50pm – Group photo on the ice with Csaba
- 5:00pm – 7:15pm – AIHA All Star game
If you play in an AIHA club team, we ask that you bring your club team jersey with you and wear it for the group photo to help make it special. The group photo will be framed and given to Csaba as a farewell gift.
The first 150 people to RSVP will receive a voucher for a free beer, wine or non-alcoholic beverage.
*Upon entry, you will receive a voucher for a free beer, wine or non-alcoholic beverage. In order to receive a free drink voucher, you must have been one of the first 150 people to RSVP. Those who do not RSVP will not receive a free drink.

Free ice skate:
This is an ice skate only, free for all members and their family – no ice hockey activities will take place. Bring your own skates if you have them or hire them for an additional cost from Paradice.
We welcome all members to step on to the ice for a large group photo with Csaba in the middle. If you have a club team jersey, bring it with you to represent your team in the photo!
AIHA All Star Game:
We will be running a free AIHA All Star game with two teams made up of our top junior and representative players and some of our local NZIHL players.
Unfortunately this event conflicts with some AHL games held at Botany. We did not know that this farewell event for Csaba would be necessary when the ice schedule was planned at the start of the year and due to limited ice time availability, we are unable to re-schedule the conflicting games. Everyone is welcome to attend as much or as little of the event as they can, and you can turn up any time, so feel free to come before or after your AHL game.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to having you join with us in celebrating Csaba’s time with AIHA!
