Whether you are still actively playing the game or not we hope you are able to join us.  With many of the Alumni returning from their university/college teams for the holidays it is a good way to get old and new together to catch up on everyone’s activities for the first half of the season or for the opportunity to reconnect with some of those old teammates/coaches you have not seen for years.

We hope you are able to join us on December 22.  We have tried to connect with all former Wildcats but please pass this on as we do not have all addresses for former Wildcat players.  If you could let us know if you will be attending and what you have been doing since graduating that would be appreciated.

You can respond to us at mphunt@live.com or atbell2000@yahoo.ca
