NEWS RELEASE
TOWN OF COLLINGWOOD
*************************

The Town of Collingwood is pleased to have been presented with not one, but two potential opportunities to once again host a Junior Hockey tenant in the Eddie Bush Memorial Arena.

The Town has most recently been in conversations with a Tier II Junior A proponent, led by Dave Steele, current General Manager and Head Coach of the Stayner Siskins Junior C hockey club.  As of Thursday night, a second proponent emerged in the form of a Junior B option led by Terry Geddes, Andy Pritchard, and Paul Jeffrey.
 
Both proponents are immersed in their respective process for securing a team, and both have been provided with a brief overview of a tenancy arrangement, on behalf of the Town, that is subject to Council approval.

Due to the unusual circumstances of receiving interest from two proponents simultaneously, the Town has developed a process for selection. Town staff will be working with Council and the two potential organizations over the next few months to come to a decision and agreement.
