Each year the Muskoka Parry Sound (MPS) hockey league has an all-star day where each centre is asked to send a required number of players and two teams are formed for a game in each division.  Huntsville will be hosting the tournament this year, and the funds raised are earmarked for the Bob Beaumont Bursary Fund.  The bursary is given to one or more graduating midget-aged player / volunteer who is going on to post secondary education.
 
 


Bob’s long tenure into hockey started at the age of 8 when he was first signed up with the local hockey organization.  When he finished playing hockey, he stayed involved by volunteering at a local level, and refereeing. He was a big supporter of the house league program and presented the idea of an annual house league hockey tournament to the board, the first one being held in March of 1975.  The tournament still runs today providing 100’s of kids in the house league program a chance to participate in a tournament over the Christmas holidays.   In 1984 he took a position as development coordinator with the OMHA for the Parry Sound Muskoka area.  He was elected to the OMHA Executive in 1985 and was the longest sitting Regional Executive member taking care of hockey matters for Parry Sound/Muskoka for 26+ years.   Bob has received many citations and awards over the years for his volunteer contributions to hockey. In 1988 Bob received the Corps d’ Elite Award for his significant contributions to recreational activities in Ontario. In 2008 Bob received the Ontario Hockey Federation’s Volunteer of the Year award recognizing his outstanding commitment and significant contribution to the game.  In 2008 Parry Sound Minor Hockey recognized Bob for his years of dedication and commitment to the club and the game by making him an honorary member of the club.  He has also been recognized by the OMHA for his over 20 years of service as a member of the development committee.  In 2010, Bob was inducted into the builder’s category at the Bobby Orr Hockey Hall of Fame.  Bob passed away October 1, 2011 at the age of 71 years after a courageous battle with cancer.  We dedicate these All Star games in his name for the love of the game…
