AHA Annual General meeting and BBQ

To all AHA members.  Please find attached the Notice of our Annual General meeting to be held on Saturday, June 20, at 3 pm at the Rakochey residence. That morning, the AHA executive will be meeting to discuss the past year, and make the plans and budgets for the coming year. We hope that everyone who can come will attend to hear about what your executive has done in the past year, and what our plans are for the 2015-16 year. This is your time to come and have input, ask questions, and know what is going on. If you want to get involved in the executive, this is your time as well.  After that very short meeting, we will host our annual summer BBQ. Please bring your whole family - spouses, kids - everyone. We hope that the weather will allow us all to be outside, but we have plenty of room inside as well. With the AGM to be held at 3 or so, we hope that part will be done by 3:30, and then we can all visit and play and I can show off some of my new break dancing moves I have been working on. All food and drink will be provided compliments of the AHA. Dinner will probably be around 5:30 or so. You will eat what you are served and you will like it! We hope you will all attend. If you are coming, and so that we can plan for the numbers, please call Launie Rakochey at 403-247-4323 or you can email her at to let us know of you are coming and how many.  Rob Rakochey - AHA President & lover of Jalapeno Poppers

One wall in Calgary

This Sunday, March 8, at 6pm will be our regular session for the one wall


I will be there for sure, and most likely Rob and his sons.

We have extra eye guards and balls for anyone that just wants to come out and try the sport, it uses a Big Blue ball (basically a racquetball) and I think most people just use their bare hands while playing

 The gym is the Clear Water Academy gym. The actual building is called Harvey Hall.  Has a large sign on it. The address for the school is 2521 Dieppe Avenue SW

Calgary‎ AB‎ T2E 7J9
