The Bonnyville PONTIACS want to give a heartfelt thank-you to all our amazing fans, our incredibly generous sponsors, our billet families, our dedicated Board, our players and their families from the bottom our our heart for your outstanding support during the 2014/15 season.
The season marked many franchise records:
– Highest play-off finish in franchise history
– First time in franchise history competed in the AJHL North Division final
– Broke records for single game attendances
– Had the most Player Community involvement in franchise history
– Highest 50/50 jackpots in franchise history
– Strongest second half finish in franchise history
What most people will remember this season is the hard work and commitment from our players on the ice but is important to recognize that the Bonnyville PONTIACS are way more than what people experienced watching our games.
Being a PONTIAC is way beyond the uniform – it is about 'who wears the uniform' and it is about representing yourself everyday as a great citizen in our great community. Not everyone can be a Bonnyville PONTIAC but those that want to become more than just a better hockey player, there is no greater environment to do so.
It was one 'heck of a ride' and our combination of fine young men gave us much to be proud of. Aside from what happened on the ice, in the end new friends were made, life lesson skills were obtained and the players all made a tremendously positive impact on our community with their commitment to 'giving back.'
We have much to look forward to!
Words are not enough – thank you – thank you – thank you!
