Well after 16 months, 425 posts, over 88,000 hits and many,many hours put in, I have had to call time on the blog. Due to family, work and school commitments I don't have the time to put into it any longer and can't do justice to the team/ fans even as an unofficial blog.
Last season, the blog was one of the most updated (not well typed at times, sorry) and for the most part informative in the BCHL. During a difficult season for the team in the 2011/12 season on and off the ice, the Grizzlies social media team set about and put together a facebook, twitter, photography and a blog to put the Grizzlies on the social media map. The Grizz Roar was proud to be a part of that. But, it was only meant to be a stop gap until an official blog was born. Usually, the broadcaster from a BCHL team does a blog for most of the teams ???
As an unofficial blog, I had luxury of being a bit more edgy, but, at the same time, respectful to the organisation. I hope that was accomplished. It has been a thrill as a fan, to be able to do something for the team your passionate about.
Grizzlies fans will have lots to look forward to as the social media team goes from strength to strength with Tony, Mike, Roy and Kevin.
I'd like to say a big thank you, to Tony, Mike, Roy, Reza, the new Grizzlies ownership, players from the last two seasons, players parents/families, the fans for sure and most importantly my amazing wife and one year old daughter for allowing me the time to have done this.
Good luck to Bill and the boys in what looks to be an amazing season as we go forward.
Thanks folks it's been a blast!!!
