I want to thank the current ownership, Mike Roberts , Lewis Hendrickson and Joe Kozek for letting me be a part of it and to continue on the great foundation that was laid with the championship season in 2009.Also a special thank you to Troy Mick who not only gave me the opportunity to take over but helped out in so many ways along the way.
To all my hockey staff, Randy Quakenbush, Darren Komonoski, Rob Miskiman, Don Watt, Bruce and Cheryl Fry for volunteering so many hours as we could never have done it without you and also to the off-ice staff, Tammy and Courtney Kaler, the booster club, off ice officials, game night staff for keeping things smooth as we played. The media for keeping all of Revelstoke informed, Steve Smith from E-Z Rock, Mavis Cann from Revelstoke times review, thank you to Amy Gudinger of Helios Fitness as well.
A special Thank You to the Billets, Sponsors, Trans Canada Fitness and to Revelstoke Secondary School for all of your continued support of our hockey program. Revelstoke is and will continue to be a flagship franchise in the KIJHL.
The Revelstoke Grizzlies will be announcing a new GM/Head Coach in the next few days.
