The Vice President of the Kimberley Dynamiters feels now is the perfect time to host the Cyclone Taylor Cup in the city.
Glen Johnston is spearheading the Nitros bid to host the British Columbia Provincial Junior B Hockey Championship.
He feels there’s a lot the Dynamiters would bring to the event as hosts.
“We’re not a very big community, but we have a lot of people who show up for our games,” Johnston says. “We average about 600, 650 people. A lot of people come, support the team, so I think having a full barn for teams that come in, its excitement to play in a full barn, instead of playing at a big center and there’s nobody watching the game.”
Johnston is seeking endorsement letters from throughout the community to include in the bid to show the support for the team locally.
The Cyclone Taylor was last hosted by an Eddie Mountain Division team following the 2016-2017 hockey season by the Creston Valley Thunder Cats.
The Dynamiters last hosted the tournament in 2009.
