HOCKEY - 1957 - 2002

(A)

Playing hockey with my brother Billy (b. 1945) and first cousins, George (b. 1945) and Linda (b. 1943) Toews,
in the basement of my parents home at Point Pelee. Linda and I were of the same age.

See You At The Arena

The Recreation and Agriculture Centre (Leamington Recreation Centre) where I played many, many games!
The 1954-1955 hockey season was its first at the Leamington Arena even as the seats were still being installed. 
(An indoor arena in Leamington did not exist prior to this structure being built)

Not sure if I played this year.
If I did, I would have had to play on a Pee Wee Team given my age (my 2nd Cousin, John Kornelsen, born the same month and year as I - January, 1943 - was a Pee Wee that year)

For sure, at this time I was playing pond hockey on the marsh at Point Pelee with my cousins and friends.

Fred Epplett, Former Leamington Flyers’ Owner Passes – by C. Scott Holland

He held a passion, a fire and lifelong enjoyment of the game of hockey but on Sunday, November 29, Fred Epplett, second owner of the Leamington Flyers hockey club, passed away.

The original club began in 1950 and by the late 50s the club struggled to obtain players and fans. In the conclusion of the 1959/60 season, original founder and owner Bill Burgess put the club up for sale. A young entrepreneur whose business was based in Leamington decided to purchase the club.

That fellow was Fred Epplett, one of the area’s most down-to-earth citizens.

His International Trucks Ltd. business grew under his guidance and ownership in much the same way as he helped transform the Leamington Flyers. But most of all, his beloved Flyers hockey team would become a highly competitive group of young men who sought to learn how to play the game, develop their talents and learned valuable lessons in life.

Epplett succeeded in hiring some of the best coaches around and after the Border Cities Hockey loop disbanded in 1963, he entered the Flyers in the OHA Juvenile ranks. For three consecutive seasons the Flyers went to the All-Ontario finals winning the provincial title once. Two future NHLers came out of those teams – Brad Selwood and Randy Manery ...
