Oceanside+Mayor+to+Drop+First+Puck+for+Youth+Inline+Hockey+League

Oceanside CA— Having been popularizing the sport of roller hockey in Oceanside-Carlsbad-Vista and surrounding area since 1993, Tri-City Inline Hockey League (TCIHL), an Oceanside based non-profit organization, celebrates its 25th anniversary. To commemorate the special occasion, Oceanside Mayor Peter Weiss will be dropping the first puck for the league’s youngest division at TCIHL’s 25th Anniversary Season Opening March 10th. As the City of Oceanside official website states, “Peter is still active in community sports as a coach and referee for the Tri-City Inline Hockey League. He still plays ice hockey for ‘The Cheese,’ and has been known to frequent various drinking establishments as a performer in a rock-and-roll band:”[ http://www.ci.oceanside.ca.us/gov/council/mayor.asp]Indeed, passionate about the sport and especially promoting development of youth inline roller hockey in North County San Diego, Peter has been involved with TCIHL for many years. Both of his sons and both daughters played in the league until they grew up. And besides volunteering as a coach and ref, Peter – even in his 60’s – helps youngsters as their goalie during roller hockey games at TCIHL – that is vs. teenagers as goalies on the other side!
TCIHL’s 25th Anniversary Season Opening will take place at the Martin Luther King Jr. Park’s roller hockey rink located 4300 Mesa Drive in Oceanside on March 10, 2018, starting with first puck drop by Mayor Weiss at 9:00 am, and continuing until 3:00 pm with games and fun Chuck-a-Puck contests for the audience between Mite/Squirt games and again between Squirt/Peewee games. Participants throw a puck from the bleachers, hit the center of rink the closest, and win a percentage of the cash purse & ½ off registration for Fall 2018 season, cost: $1 per puck or $5 for 6 pucks. Admission for TCIHL games is always free to spectators. A portion of the proceeds will benefit TCIHL, a 501(c)3 organization.
