|Obituary: Donald F Arthur|
Donald F. Arthur passed away Friday, February 7, 2014. His death was due to a severe stroke. His daughter Diana remarks "Dad was still 'that' guy and I'm sure his stroke will come as a huge shock to all." We definitely agree.
Ron Bronner adds: Don was a good friend of mine, & we lived near each other in the TC area of MN. He & myself both ot transferred to CO. He lived in Colorado Springs for a number of years prior to transferring to the Boston area. He had an engineering background. He played on the Pikes Peak YMCA team for a number of years. read more ...

|Post Xmas Youth Handball Clinic|
Thanks to Sean Von Roenn and the Bob Burger Rec Center in Lafayette, we were able to conduct a two day youth handball clinic on December 26 & 27th. 15 young players received instruction from Mark Hammond, Jake Plummer, Sean Von Roenn, Mike Kearney & Stan Wolpoff.
Most participants play baseball for Mark, although Jake invited 3 players visiting from Kansas. Everyone had a blast!
We plan to offer similar programs, during future school vacations. All attendees said they will play handball again. A few adult spectators asked when they might get a chance to learn to play.

|Congratulations to Jeffco B Team !!|
Jeffco B wins the league. Congratulations to Cody Parker and the Jeffco team for winning Position Day. I believe this is the first time a Jeffco team has won Stanley’s Cup.
Jeffco B and Fort Collins Day both had five wins on Position Day but Jeffco had the overall best league record with 46 wins (first tiebreaker) to take the cup. Jeffco B requested that the cup label be made up in honor of Dennis Parker who captained this team for many years.
Littleton went 4 and 4 and DAC went 2 and 6. As usual it came down to the Contenders 2 doubles match before the outcome was decided. Thanks to all who participated in the Fall League, especially you Captains. A big thank you to APEX for letting us use all the courts for Position Day. CHA sponsored a post-match gathering at Malone’s. Most of the players and spectators attended which was great to see.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

|Submit your handball news items|
Consider this your chance to get your handball related event, tourney results, or news items published on the most popular handball web site in the Rocky Mountain Region. Just send an email with your photos, comments, news, or event details to News@ColoradoHandball.com
- we will make room available for all submissions made in good faith - it is entirely free, you don't have to pay a cent.
Also note that if you are a dues paying member in the CHA (which automatically includes *everyone* who played in the 2012 fall traveling league) - you can submit a sky-scraper formatted ad and it will be rotated in to page views on our home page at no additional cost to you. Several members take advantage of this - you can see their ads along the right side by scrolling down the page. Sky-scraper format is 120 pixels wide by 600 pixels high - enough to grab serious attention from our site visitors. And it is a proven fact that handball players prefer to do business with other handball players before any unknown business entity, so it pays to get your business recognized. Just send your ad content to the same email noted above. - (published here on Sunday, April 14, 2013)

|Did you know?|
That you can sign up for an email reminder of upcoming tourney events, on a per-event basis? We know that many of you wait until the last possible minute to enter a tourney - even when you know you want to enter. You just don't want to enter early and then have to cancel because of a conflict that comes up at work, with your family, or an injury. But don't miss the entry deadline just because it fell off your radar. We will send you an email 8 days before the tourney event to remind you. Sign up on the event calendar
for the event you want to be reminded of. - (published here on Sunday, January 16, 2011)
