The Flin Flon Bombers held thair annual general meeting last night at the Flin Flon Community Hall Green room.

 

among the highlights

 

Bomber President Hank Kozar thanked all the volunteers and board members for all their hard work this past season. Hank said one of the biggest plusses from the past year was the organization purchasing their own bus, with contributions from corporate sponsors.

 

Hank also went on to thank the bus drivers , Paul Garrett, Joe Danis, Tom Morrison and Cornelious Weib who were all volunteers.

 

Kozar noted that they had to make some tough trades, but believes it was best for their organization at the time and is very excited about the futures coming back in trades and young recruits coming in with a very good group of returnees.

 

The Bombers will be looking for a new secretary treasurer as Dave Brooks after ten years serving on the board did not seek re-election. Hank thanked Dave for all his contributions and received a standing ovation from all those in attendance.

 

Financially speaking things are starting to look good.

 

Revenue is up in corporate advertising, souvenirs, the golf tournament and boat draw.

 

Unfortunately season tickets were significantly lower.

 

The Bombers turned a profit of: $9,885.38 and their overall debt is around $120,000. Not bad when you consider $75,000 of that is owing on the bus.

 

It was also noted that 41% of the Bomber crowds this past season  paid at the door.

 

Mike Reagan mentioned that it was a very successful spring camp in Saskatoon this past weekend, and their are a number of elite prospects they would like to sign.

 

Some of the prospects include Lance Yaremchuk who played with the PA Mintos, Curtis Roach from the Saskatoon Contacts and younger brother of former Bomber Josh Roach and Dustin Perillat from the Saskatoon Blazers. Perillat played in 11 games for the Bombers last season picking up 4 points, 2 goals and 2 assists

 

More future trades were announced:

 

The Bombers have completed the trade with Dauphin by re-aquiring Dillan McCombie, and 6'4 forward Tanner Lomsnes who had 34 points in 32 games last season.

 

Flin Flon also gets forward Chris Rauckman from Drumheller of the AJHL. This was futures in the Devin Buffalo trade. Rauckman had 33 goals last year and could be a potential 40 goal guy this year. The Bombers will receive one more player from Drumheller who will be named after the AJHL Showcase.

Reagan mentioned that the futures from the Yorkton Terriers will be announced next week, although in a surprising development from the AGM, it was learned that Brett Boehm's rights will revert back to Flin Flon.

 

Boehm could potentially be back in a Bomber uniform to start the season.

 

There is also 26 players returning next season with Junior A experience.

 

New board director's elected to positions last night.

 

Paul Garrett re-elected to Vice President

Directors for 2 year positions- David Hane, Gary  Westhaver and Tanya Benoit

Directors for 1 year positions- Lisa Tower and Emily Robinson

 

I will have audio with Mike and Hank on tomorrow's blog.

If all go's well with the weather, you will see lots of youngster's on various ball diamonds across town starting next week.

 

Flin Flon Creighton Ball makes the switch from fastball to hardball and there is a lot of excitement in the air. FFCB held some hardball clinics last season and they went very well, and it was decided that they would make the official switch this year.

 

One of the challenges besides the low numbers for this area, is most communities do not play fastball any more, so FFCB had a really tough time lining up tournaments out of town.

 

President Sherri Campbell and the new executive are  hoping the switch to hardball will help with attendance and give kid's a chance to travel out of town. The travel teams have been practising indoors at the Sportex for a number of weeks already.

 

Here is the schedule for the upcoming season:

 

Blastball Mon/Wed 5:30-6:15 Centoba 4

 

T-Ball/ Parent Pitch Mon/Wed 6:15-7:30 Centoba 2&3

 

Rookie/Division 1 Tues/Thurs 6-7 Centoba 2&3

 

Mosquito/Division 2  Mon/Wed 6-7:30 Centoba 1/Creighton

 

Pee Wee / Division 3 Tues/Thurs 6-7:30  Centoba 1/Creighton

Flin Flon Minor Hockey held their annual general meeting last night at the Northern room at the Victoria Inn. Flin Flon Minor Hockey President Travis Rideout chaired the meeting and mentioned there were a number of positives to report from the past season.

 

Rideout mentioned that enrollment was up due in large part to the female program. He was also very happy with the rep selection process and likes the coach's they have in place.

 

Corey Bradt , the Treasurer reported that FFMH recorded a loss of : $11,763.68 from the past season. This was due to a lot of expenses from the past year including, ice fees, referees, time keepers, a new web-site and the purchase of new jerseys.

 

There is currently $33,410.15 in the operating account and about $36,500.00 held in investments/GICS. So financially FFMH is in good shape. Bradt mentioned there will be a slight increase in registration this year to try and offset some costs.
