ARL Activities Suspended (Updated June 23-2020)

Update (2020-06-23 12:57):

Hello hockey fans,

There’s been lots of chatter about the reopening of facilities, how that will all unfold, and the impact it will have on our beloved game.

As it currently stands, we’ve yet to receive word from the league owners. So, for now, the ARL is still in limbo. As soon as something is formalized and the green light is given we will let you know.

Until then, stay tuned and start getting back in shape for the summer season!

All the best and stay safe out there folks,
The ARL Committee

Hello ARL Captains and Players:

As a result, for the ARL playoffs and Championship games, we are asking teams to replace the traditional postgame handshake with a fist pump (gloves on).

Despite reports of the risk being low for contracting COVID-19 to the general public in Canada, we are doing our due diligence in communicating the following information/recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Canada:

A Message From Bar Down

Hi Everyone,

First off, thank you to all the teams that have come up to check out the new restaurant upstairs, Bar Down. We appreciate your support, and we thank you! If you haven’t been up yet, we are waiting to meet you! As most of you may know, we run a daily special on a rotating weekly basis (so that the same teams don’t get stuck with the same specials). Our rotating specials are:

Remembrance Day Featured

Remembrance Day

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae

On this, the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, the ARL remembers those who served and those who continue to serve.

Lest we forget.
