Friends of the Grizzlys Delegation Attends Olds Council's P&P Committee Meeting

The Friends of the Grizzlys ownership group was one of the delegations appearing before Olds council during a recent policies & priorities committee meeting. The Grizzlys have inquired if the town would be open to potentially extending further into the month of May the amount of time the ice surface remains in the SportsComplex, in order to accommodate player development opportunities and tournaments.

One of the delegations to attend the Monday, November 20th policies & priorities committee meeting for Olds council was the Friends of the Grizzlys ownership group.
 
Mike Bagshaw, Sales & Marketing with the Grizzlys, says as one of the smaller markets in the Alberta Junior Hockey League they are constantly looking for new opportunities to generate revenue.
 
 
Bagshaw says the Grizzlys have also inquired if the town would be open to potentially extending further into the month of May the amount of time the ice surface remains in the SportsComplex.
 
 
He notes one of the things they identified early on after taking ownership this summer is the need to become Central Alberta's AJHL team.
 

Bagshaw adds, another critical piece for the Friends of the Grizzlys ownership group is to be exceptional corporate citizens and they are looking to create a fun family environment at Grizzlys home games.
