MARK YOUR CALENDAR ... Welcome Back Picnic - Sunday, September 25th, 2016 - 1 pm


2015 Picnic. Here are photos from last year's picnic. Classic fall weather, a great meal and lots of fans and student-athletes enjoyed the day at the CRC Park on Sunday. Welcome to the new hockey season!

On Sunday afternoon, September 25th at 1 PM, the CHA will host the annual Welcome Back Picnic at the Cornell Recreation Park for the men's and women's hockey teams. Come out to greet the teams, introduce yourselves to the freshmen classes and get an early report from the coaches about the upcoming season.

CHA members, families and friends of Cornell Hockey are all welcome. You can bring a dishes-to-pass but be aware of food allergies and please note ingredients like peanuts, if present.

This is always a nice event to meet student-athletes at the beginning of the season, develop friendships and help support the players who are often far from home.

The picnic is rain-or-shine at the Cornell Recreation Park off Hanshaw Road. The CRC provides a pavillion and woodstove for inclement weather.
