With being a community-owned team, we have a lot of people to thank for helping support our organization this season.
We would like to start off by thanking Matt Forchuk, Logan Ferguson, Brett Stewart, Braden Saretsky, Ryan Bontorin, Dondre Watson, and Kyle Pauls for their leadership and dedication to the Eagles organization. The milestones you have achieved individually and as a team will not be forgotten. Thank you for your commitment to the team and the Bow Valley community.
Thank you to Monique Barnett DesRosiers and our billet families for opening your doors to our young athletes and for treating them as one of your own.
Thank you to Jennifer Lambert and our amazing volunteer team. Our volunteer team brings passion and fun to our in-game experience; we couldn't do it without you! This group extends across the arena from the merchandise table, to our admissions desk, to the penalty box, and all the way up to the announcers booth. We are very privileged to have such a dedicated group.
Thank you to our sponsors for supporting our team and helping strengthen our Bow Valley community. Your support allows our organization to not only develop our player’s skills but provide them with the tools to achieve scholarships and be exceptional representatives of the Bow Valley community.
Thank you to Canmore Minor Hockey Association for being a valued partner and sharing in our efforts to grow hockey in Canmore.
Thank you to our players parents for being part of our Eagles family and the continual support from the stands and behind the scenes. This season has had many successes and having you as part of it has been a privilege.
Thank you to our Canmore Recreation Centre rink staff! You have gone above and beyond for our organization and it doesn't go unnoticed. Thank you for being such great partners as well as fans.
Thank you to our Bow Valley community and fans! We would like to put emphasis on BOW VALLEY! Thank you Kananaskis, Morley, and Stoney Nakoda Resort and Casino for recognizing us as your team no matter the extra kilometres. Banff, Alberta, thank you for showing us such huge support at our Banff game and to the fans for making the trips out to Canmore. Exshaw, Alberta, thank you for being an amazing community that some of our players have been lucky enough to call home this season. Your support as billets, volunteers, and fans is greatly appreciated. Thank you Town of Canmore for supporting Junior A hockey and for being great partners, billet families, and fans. We cannot thank our Bow Valley community and fans enough. We look forward to seeing you all again next season!
And last but certainly not least, we would like to thank our Board of Directors: Darryl Lockwood, Al Doll, John Straw, Vicki Lockwood, Pat Semeniuk, Jennifer Lambert, Luc Turcotte, Monique Desrosiers, and Michael McWhinnie. Your time invested towards supporting our team is monumental and directly related to us being able to sustain a Junior A hockey team in the Bow Valley. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
This was not the result we wanted but the team accomplished many achievements this season that will not be overshadowed. Thank you again to everyone for supporting the Canmore Eagles 2016-2017 season!
