WOW, What a Day
Submitted By Vonnie Crawford on Saturday, June 11, 2011
The Sheraton Parkway North Hotel, Grand Ball Room in Richmond Hill was the place to be

On Saturday June 11th the OMHA held their AGM business meeting and Parade of Champions.

The parade started with 6 - OHL 1st round draft picks which included Zack Nastasiuk the 6.0', 175lb RW from the Barrie Colts drafted as Owen Sound Attack's first pick in the 2011 Priority Draft.  

Many teams from across the province proudly represented their home centres whether an "E" center or a Juvenille "AAA" centre.  As Don Landry from 590 & Andy Frost from Q107  and the announcer for the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada introduced and recapped the season highlights and successes probably 3000 parents, OMHA executive and delegates cheered.  

The excitement never stopped from the moment that loud voice said "Welcome to the 2011 OMHA Parade of Champions" until the final team the "Chatsworth REBELS - NOVICE WOAA "JACOBI" CHAMPIONS" was announced and with 13 players running for the stage with smiles from ear to ear it was a perfect way to end the parade. 

With parents, grandparents & siblings all cheering loudly the Horton Concrete Finishing Novice Rep Players and coaches lined up centre stage for their team photo and moment of glory with camera's flashing, video recordings rolling on the big screen in each corner of the room it was a day to remember.  We hope this young group of players have the opportunity to be apart of the Parade of Champions many times throughout their Minor Hockey years or in 8 years of leading the parade as a 1st round OHL draft pick.

Special thanks to Kim Stewart for arranging for the team to be apart of this special event.  

WAIT A MINUTE, They're not finished.......
Look out Toronto the Township of Chatsworth REBELS are heading to the city.  44 Rebels players & fans will be at the Jays game on Sunday June 12, let's make some noise and we'll hopefully see REBELS sweaters and happy faces on the Television during the game.
