After a very successful 12 years of operating the Southwest Denver Oldtimers Hockey League, its founder and commissioner, John Ling is retiring to Arizona on July 1st.
As a small token of our appreciation for John’s leadership over the years, a party is planned in his honor on Tuesday night, June 22, 2021 at the Blackbird Public House, 305 S Downing St, Denver, CO 80209 from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm. It will be a cash bar (excellent food is also available, too.) No tickets required.
Please RSVP here https://forms.gle/X4giDeuZ3SpfcPaV7 so the Blackbird can plan adequate staffing that night.
John built and grew an amazing league and drop-in greatly valued by everyone who skates in the SDOHL and on Sundays and we hope you’ll be able to join us on the 22nd.
SDOHL Team Captains
(PS: The SDOHL remains an active league and will continue as it has these past dozen years — including the Sunday Drop-in.
Starting with the Winter 2021-22 season, there will be a new manager and slightly different name, West Denver Hockey League.
Keep an eye out for a brief introductory email with more information.)
