2013 Bantam Euro-Tour - A Big Thank-You
Submitted By Ken Flieger on Wednesday, January 16, 2013
A group of Bantam aged hockey players from Elmvale and surrounding communities will be embarking on a 12-day European Tour later this year.  This team of 22 players will represent both Elmvale and Canada as they play 8 exhibition games travelling from Helsinki Finland to Malmö Sweden.  During their stay in Malmö, they will be cheering on Team Canada at the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championship. 

Our goal is to raise enough funds to offset the cost of the trip for all players involved.  One of the fundraising efforts was an electronic waste collection day. Working with Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP) from Barrie, the 2013 Elmvale Euro-Tour hockey team hosted an electronic waste collection day at the Elmvale Arena. All electronic waste will be diverted from a landfill and recycled by GEEP, one of the leaders in this industry diverting 97% of everything they collect away from landfills. 

The bin from GEEP arrived around 9 am and we were setup well in advance of our 10 am start. When we decided on holding our electronic waste collection day on January 12, we had no idea that the sun would be shining with plus ten on the thermometer, it sure made for a great day. Time flew by quickly as vehicle after vehicle rolled up to the bin with everything from TVs, to computers, to electric guitars. With donations coming in from Elmvale and the surrounding communities we filled the bin to capacity by 2 in the afternoon. GEEP will weigh the materials and pay the Bantam Euro Tour team for every pound of e-Waste.  100% of all money raised will be used to offset the cost of player’s travel expenses.

The Bantam Euro Tour team would like to thank Elmvale and the surrounding communities for bringing their electronic waste to the arena as well as their continued support in our fundraising efforts.  We would also like to thank Kent Fay from Diamond Head Sprinklers Inc. who asked us to cut off any 3-prong cords from the donated materials which he will be using in future projects. Kent has offered a generous donation for our efforts.

If you missed out on our electronic waste, there is still an opportunity to donate your used electronics. You can take them to GEEP’s depot at 220 John Street in Barrie and tell them you would like to donate your e-Waste to the Elmvale Euro-Tour team.  We would like to hold another collection day in the Spring so you can always wait and bring your items at that time.
