Former PHL - One of the Originals

Al Hicks

Meet Al Hicks.
“I was born in Margate, England and came to Canada when I was three. We stayed in Montreal for a little bit and then moved to Ottawa. I grew up in the war time housing right across from Westgate Shopping Mall. I went to Fisher Park High School. I was in the graphic arts program, which I loved. I could draw with pen, pencil or ink and I’d draw all the advertisements. It was really hard to get a job that paid any money, so I turned my attention to cars.
“I worked at a variety of jobs and at a few different car washes. I also drove for Pepsi. My buddy worked for Coke and we would meet up and switch cases because I liked drinking Coke and he liked drinking Pepsi. After that, I started working for the City of Ottawa, cutting grass in the summer and working in the arenas in the winter. After that, I worked in the mailroom, delivering interdepartmental mail all over the city.
“I was a pretty good athlete, played a lot of hockey and I was an arm wrestler. One time I was even on the Wild World of Sports. We would travel all over to tournaments and I did pretty well. I also loved cars. Buying them, taking them apart, putting them back together, fixing them and then selling them for more than I bought them for. Cars were simpler then and you could take it apart and put it back together in the same day. My favourite car was the Dodge Fury with a 426 wedge. I used to go to the racetrack with her and she’d go about 120-130 mph. I’ve been married to Carol for 52 years; the secret to a long marriage is two good people.” Collected by Ellen Bond

Spare Money - Update - Seeking Remedy

This happened once again yesterday with spares participating but not paying their $$$. As a group we have to be vigilant and seek a solution. I will take all suggestions and we will vote on what to do with those individuals and the associated captains not complying. 
Unfortunately the spare money payment honour system has gone amiss and some participants are taking advantage of the absence of captains. Some players fail to recall that they have played and some say they will "pay next week" and don't.  No Longer !!

Effective immediately:
- NO money - NO play - NO exceptions   

Borrow from a teammate if need be and pay up before or during the warm up. The league no longer takes promissory notes.

Spares from outside the league = $18
Spares from inside the league = $7

Thank you for your understanding and prompt attention to this matter.
