John Ling Retirement Party

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 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.

Thank you,
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.)
