2020 GOLF TOURNEY CANCELLED
Posted by: 
Thursday, June 25, 2020

On Tuesday June 22nd after much deliberation, The Oil Kings Alumni, through Darryl Havrelock announced the cancellation of the 2020  Alumni golf tourney, slated for The Links in Spruce Grove for Friday August 21st.. 
"We tried every possible way, and got sound guidance all the way from The Links golf course, but we just weren't comfortable with the steps needed to be followed, as set out by Alberta Health officials. The Social-Distancing rules  must be adhered to, for everyone's protection, and that's really what did us in. 
Our usual shotgun Start at 1:00 PM was not possible & forced us to look at straight Tee Times beginning at 9:00 AM. Our last foursome would have teed off at 2:33 PM and likely would not get off the course until between 6:30 and 7:00 PM. Also, proxy markers were ruled out, so there would be zero Activities conducted at any of the holes., along with no Awards Banquet, to once more adhere to the Social-Distancing requirements all golf courses must follow" stated Havrelock.
"Our tourney has built a solid reputation over the past 13 years, & we felt making all the changes required to operate this year was just too much for our sponsors and golfers to accept. We will survive, returing  with a vengeance next year, and like many Edmonton businesses, be stronger than ever" continued the ex-Oil Kings stalwart defenceman.
  We are currently issuing 1005 refunds to all sponsors and golfers, and should have them in everyone's hands by July 10th. I
Anyone with refund questions,  kindly contact Darryl Havrelock by telephone at 780-469-5718 or email him at dotanddk@shaw.ca.

OIL KINGS ALUMNI EXPANDING:
Posted by: 
Sunday, February 23, 2020

As of March 1, 2020, the Edmonton Oil Kings Alumni is expanding their ranks, to include all WHL graduate players from the Edmonton area,  who have played a minimum of 1 year (68 games) in the WHL.
"Not only has the game changed drastically over the years, but so have the methods by which each club is able to operate", stated Darryl Havrelock, founder of the Oil Kings Alumni.  When junior hockey came to Edmonton back in the 50's, there was  a Sponsorship system in place, whereby each club was supported financially to a certain degree, by one of the six NHL clubs, with many hometown boys playing on each team. Such is not the case nowadays, as all CHL clubs follow a Draft plan similar to the one utilized by today's 32-team NHL. Players from all over the world, come to each WHL  team via their Draft system. It's tough if not impossible for any Alumni to survive by operating like it was still the '50's. And, we all wear the same uniform nowadays, chuckled Havrelock. Maybe we can start something here for other clubs to take a look at, and maybe follow suit."
"Our Alumni is likely the most active in all of today's Western Hockey League cities", cited Havrelock. "Each year we hold roughly 7 events, well attended, and go a long way at keeping the guys all together. There are numerous Edmonton & area boys playing in the WHL, and we want to welcome them into our expanded Alumni which will be known as the OIL KINGS & WHL ALUMNI
Our Premier Alumni Event is our annual Golf Tournament, now in it's 13th year. Our other events range from Breakfasts or lunches, to A Night at the Mayfield Dinner Theatre, to a Mystery Golf Day, or we've taken in a ball game.  One thing we've made certain of, is to welcome our golf tourney sponsors to these events. They are the ones who support us & make it possible for us to remain active as a group". We consider them to be part of our Alumni group.
So, calling all former WHL players in the Edmonton area.  If you are interested in becoming part of the  Oil Kings & Western Hockey League Alumni, go to our "ALUMNI REGISTRY PAGE, fill it out & follow the instructions.
