Update on Flyers Season
The last couple of days have been filled with many stories and rumors regarding the future of the Kelly Ford Gander Flyers and many of you are wondering what the future holds for the team.
The Flyers have entered into a very serious and troubling period in team history. Revenue for this season has fallen well below budgeted figures and as a result has placed the team in a very serious financial situation.
We are however happy to announce that through the efforts of the team executive, players, and league officials the Flyers will play again!
It has been determined that the CWSHL season will now end and teams will enter into the playoffs based on current standings. The Flyers will now play the Clarenville Caribous in a best 2/3 series starting in Clarenville on Feb 24th.
We have experienced our struggles on the ice and our record was not where everyone would like for it to have been this season but our executive, players, and volunteers have remained steadfast in their commitment to providing residents of Gander with the best quality of hockey that they can and to fulfill our dream of bringing another Herder Championship to Gander.
This team has shown tremendous promise during the 2nd half of the season going 2-1-1 over its last 4 games.
Even with increasing financial pressures the executive wished to push forward exhausting all options available to them to keep the Gander Flyers alive.
It is only through the extreme hard work of our executive and concessions from our players that this playoff run is even possible.
Flyers Nation it is now on bended knee we ask for your HELP. In order to push this playoff drive we NEED increase fan support. Please on Saturday Feb 25th come out and show your support. We need a FULL Steele Community Centre to welcome home the Purple and Gold.
We plan to make this a very special night honoring the great history of the Flyers franchise. This will truly be a Flyers Celebration!
