Revelstoke Grizzlies call town hall meeting, change logo

New logo for Revelstoke Grizzlies; town hall meeting to clear up issues from an event-filled off season

The Revelstoke Grizzlies are hosting a public town hall meeting on Aug. 23 to introduce the new management team and to give residents a chance to ask questions about the club.

Revelstoke Grizzlies president Lewis Hendrickson and new business and marketing manager Steve Smith will host the event starting at 7–8 p.m. at the Revelstoke Community Centre.

The open house follows an off-season attempt to move the team to 100 Mile House, ownership transitions and legal wrangling between the owners and the Revelstoke Grizzlies Society.

Hendrickson said the town hall meeting is designed to turn a new chapter. “Basically just to inform the public that the team’s around and introduce the new people involved,” he said. “There’s a lot of uncertainty about what’s going on so if anybody has any questions or queries we’ll just clean it up then.”

The club is also hoping to boost season’s ticket says to help their financial picture. “There was a fair amount of debt leftover and so we’re working away at cleaning up the debt and we’re hoping that we have a unified front going forward,” Hendrickson said. They’ve set a goal of 200 season’s passes sold by Sept. 30 and are offering a prize draw for early birds.

The Grizzlies have also announced a logo change. “We’ve changed our logos and jerseys and have a fresh, classic look,” said new marketing manger Smith. The high-sticking bear and Mt. Begbie background will be replaced with a simple ‘R’ logo. “We thought we would want to rebrand it and give [them] a new look,” Hendrickson said.

Smith said the organization is raring to go. “Players are eager to come to Revelstoke to play and with a wealth of local talent available; this year’s edition of the Grizzlies is ready to roar into the Forum and impress!”

Kevin Kraus was previously announced as the head coach. Darren Komonoski will serve as assistant coach for the Junior B club.
