Nelson Minor Hockey volunteers don’t deserve disrespect

The executives, the coaches and managers are all volunteers that put a great amount of time into these kids.

Re: Hugs & Slugs, February 24.

To the person that seems to have a problem with the choosing of the bantam house teams for Nelson Minor Hockey. I would suggest that you should to to the AGM for Nelson Minor Hockey in April, 2012.

The executives, the coaches and managers are all volunteers that put a great amount of time into these kids.

You do not even have the testicles to put your name on these negative comments which in my opinion have no substance.

It is people like you that should be at the annual general meetings to put your hand up and serve a couple years on the executive. Then you would be able to see the other side of hat Nelson Minor Hockey and all other organized (non-profit) associations are all about before you start beaking off like that.
