Welcome to the home of
Mindil Beach (social) Ice Hockey Club
Reigning world champions
and fiercly proud of it!
The victorious 1995 Christmas team which rendered the Ottawa Senators
redundant with outstanding teamwork, remarkable fittness and an unexpected
heatwave which left the ice a little soft.
The June 1997 line up that travelled to Timor and swept aside an undermanned and underskilled
Kupang Cobras in what was an one-sided
whitewash that rarely challenged our skills. With an excess of post-game
energy, the team turned to their 2nd and 3rd loves…. drinking beer and
chasing chooks led by legendary goalkeeper Alfoil Al.
.Christmas 1989 and we are left scanning the horizon
for the French Faliques. We waited for the required 5
mins. then went to the pub. Then went to another pub. Then went to another pub.
Then went to another pub. Then went to another pub. Then went to the rock
(see rocksitters). We gave them an eiffel hiding.
The traditional victory pyramid after laying waste to an amaturish Edmonton
Oilers whoose underhanded tactics and creative interpretetion of the rules
reduced the game to a spiteful affair of which some team members still
have scars, both physical and mental.
Ice hockey is a very dangerous pastime.
After game celebrations following the utter decimation of the Pittsburg Steelers who came into the
match undisputed favourites but were shown the door by what was, I believe, one of our best line ups to
A pre-match photo of both the Darwin and Swiss Muhen teams. We were very impressed when a
team actually showed up on time and we excitedly set about line marking, erecting goals and spectator
stands only to discover that they were actually a soccer team. We checked the rule book and after a brief
team discussion it was decided that bugger it we’ll beat the pants off them anyway. Unfortunatly, whilst
these delays were taking place, the bloody ice melted and the match could not take place. We then
challenged them to a game of pool at the closest pub.
We have a very long and distinguished history.
