Executive Announcements

Quick Financial Report: Greg White: We will have reduced the balance in our account by 5k this year. Much was spent on our Golf Trip and the 30th party; As well as renewing the website. 42 members now. Projections suggest another loss of 6k. Dues will go up slightly next year. It was $350 if paid early or $400. Will now be $420 each with no discount. We feel it is till quite reasonable for our great breakfasts that the Radisson Hotel hooks us up with and then only charge us for people who attend, not the projected number. Compliments from the peanut gallery on his quick and easy to understand report. FYI: it has been 2 years since last dues increase. Milton: Choir practice scheduling, TBA.

Speaker | Steve Hogle President of the Saskatoon Blades

Steve introduced us to the new faces of his management team. Of special note is Colin Priestner, as Managing Partner. He brings a great freshness to the club. In revitalizing the brand, the management knew that the hockey part cannot be changed; But the business is able to change. They are working to inspired a new culture. They want to be putting the players first, and hockey second. Only 5% of AHL players go to NHL. Steve wants to help ready them for other opportunities in life and create strong characters. This is a critical component to their philosophy. ?

Compliments for Steve and the Blades

Giselle complimented the organization. She works with them to sell 50/50 tickets and will announce another unique venture between Sasktel and the Blades in the near future.
