    ------------------------------------------Notes:---------------------------------------

    They never played on Sunday. The dressing room was in the west corner net to the road. It was a separate room, heated by a stove. In the other half of the clubhouse the front opened up, and there was a screen so the pucks wouldn’t fly in. You could watch the game from inside the clubhouse, where it was warm. Eventually the boards wore out, and by that time Stewart was gone. They got a bulldozer to put mounds of soil around the sides, but it was never as good. The clubhouse was sold to Joe Ferrier to build his house, but pupils from Hornby School made use of it at noon hour, and even in the 1940’s it was a great place for young people to meet on Sunday for a game of shinny.
    In the era when they used lanterns to light the rink for hockey, there were also carnivals. On one occasion, Will Chilsholm gathered up people on the way, and won the prize for bringing the most people to the carnival; a buggy whip.

    -------------------------------------Inscriptions:-------------------------------------

    Gordon Chisholm was a hockey referee for the OHA. He had a brass bell, not a whistle. The referee’s skates are different from players’ skates. His were tube skates with tubes about the size of a pencil. It was said they could knock the players down, but they couldn’t knock the referee down. He was solid on his feet and big at that time. Gordon walked from the 6th line and Steeles to catch the train for Streetsville at Hornby station for the games, and he would come home on the midnight train.
    When Hornby was in the OHA league, they had a special train to Galt with a special rate for the hockey team and the followers.
