It is with sincere excitement, yet also with a heavy heart that I make a major personal announcement. After four unforgettable years in the Battlefords I have accepted a position with the Prince George Cougars of the Western Hockey League. I will be responsible for Corporate Sales, Media Relations and the Play-By-Play Broadcasting for all regular season and playoff games for the 2011-2012 season and (hopefully) beyond.
The past 48 hours have been extremely emotional, and there's a lot to process right now, and the next few weeks are no doubt going to be an absolute blur. There are so many things that I want to reflect on, and so many people that I want to thank, and I will certainly do so before my time in the Battlefords comes to a close.
I'm excited for the new opportunity, and I'm overjoyed by the fact that Julie and I get to start a new adventure together. This is something that I have been building towards ever since I started watching hockey and I'm incredibly excited to hit the ground running and contribute to the legacy of the Prince George Cougars.
The support that I have received from family, friends and colleagues has been nothing short of amazing. The phone-calls, e-mails, and texts have made me feel incredibly humbled and grateful. I feel so much gratitude to those who have cheered me on and encouraged me along the way.
I promise that there will be some more entries and some deeper thoughts posted on here before the move. For now I just wanted to publish the news, and make everyone aware of the decision.
Thanks for stopping by. Your readership and support is something that I genuinely appreciate.
More tomorrow, I promise.
