:rolleyes:

If parents didn't demand zero tolerance laws to keep little Susie and Jimmy safe the schools wouldn't have these rules. The kids knew what the rules were and chose to break them anyway. How would you feel if you were on the opposing team and the kids got caught breaking the rules and were allowed to play anyway? What other rules could they break and still be allowed to play?

Zero tolerance for smoking a cigar when you're 18 seems like it would qualify as totalitarianism to me, but if people knew the rules and the consequences that would happen for breaking them then it doesn't do much good to complain about it for arguments sake, except only to point out how asinine and absurd some of these consequences appear to be at face value.

The actual rule they broke was no tobacco (and other things) until they graduated or the season was over, whichever was later. Age had nothing to do with it. They still had a state title match after graduation, so their season was not over yet.

Your comment reminds me of what I heard someone say many years a go. The definition of a fact is something that you honestly believe. ;) I think we still have a few of those people who subscribe to that definition.

By the way , the Oronoka has been bulldozed.

I certainly hope you are wrong, but wouldn't be shocked if your spot on. Athlete code of conducts should be done away with, what a complete joke. A couple kids in MA got banned from the lacrosse playoffs for smoking a cigar at graduation, they were 18!

When I graduated UMaine, there were a few kids smoking something down the row from me, but it wasn't a cigar. One of them had a brother who went on to a certain prominence in the state of Maine.

I heard. Very sad. That was an institution, I guess once Ellen passed there wasn't anyone left to carry on the tradition. A lot of fond...hazy memories. R.I.P Noka

Details are on the FOMH Facebook page with details for the tournament in Alaska. Maine and Wisconsin are both staying at the Captain Cook Hotel and a special rate of $99/night is being offered for fans. Cheap airfare can be had from Boston to Anchorage. The best deal might be to book hotel and flight through Priceline or Expedia.

Bob Corkum has officially been named an assistant coach for the Islanders. He was unofficially a coach last year.

Ya, she knew how to cook. I remember going there for dinner one time on like a Tuesday, I think we were the only ones in there and they brought out so much free food to munch on that we never ended up ordering dinner because we were so full. (Ordered plenty of beers tho!)

Oh yeah...the Oronoka. I have 2 memories. One clear and one vague. Clear one was watching a classmate of mine who had been in the service chug a pitcher of draft beer in like 5 seconds.....vague one was 4 guys carrying me out ofthe Noka on my bachelors party...they each had an arm or a leg. Was ....Not....Pretty. :D

I'm glad they hired someone who has been at the school for awhile. Hopefully they have learned from previous mistakes of hiring someone from away and them bailing a couple years later.

Additional information that I received from Deb Leavitt of the Maine Ticket Office

I just spoke with the Alaska ticket office. They have not set up sales yet for the MIH games in Oct. She said it will be mid August before complete. At that time you will be directed to a website to purchase directly from them............we will not be getting consignment tickets. The tournament price will be $35.
I also asked about the possiblity of them selling out.............they doubt that will happen but will hold tickets for our Maine fans just in case. So no worries about getting tickets. Check back with me mid August and I should have the website to direct you too.
Have a great day,

Deb
