Good Evening Hounds Fans,
Firstly, thank you to all who participated in our 2017 Playoff Slogan contest! Regardless of the outcome, your input and votes have been much appreciated as we head into the most exciting time of the year!
Our staff, and many fans, have noticed a discrepancy amongst voting results for multiple slogan finalists. The results have been skewed and rendered the voting system flawed.
While it is unfortunate that this resulted from a well intended promotion, there is no way for us to filter out the spammed/tainted votes we currently have.
After meeting with our players, coaching staff, and business staff, the organization has made the decision to use one universal slogan for the 2017 OHL Playoffs.
This is the first time this will be done in recent history, as typically there is a different slogan used internally and externally.
While this was not the intended result of starting this promotion, having one slogan provides a great way to unite our fans and players as we focus on making history in Sault Ste. Marie.
For the 2017 OHL Playoffs, the Soo Greyhounds will be adopting the slogan “Now We Run”.
The concept of sprinting into the playoffs has stuck with our players and we would love to see this mantra embraced by Hounds Nation!
As a token of appreciation, all five finalists from the Playoff Slogan contest will receive a Greyhounds Prize Pack, including: two (2) tickets for the first two playoff games in the Essar Centre, a t-shirt, hat, and toque.
We will also do a drawing amongst the five finalists for a game-used, signed stick. Finalists will be contacted through the provided email for prize and ticket pick-up.
We appreciate your continued support and look forward to having our community get behind this team for the 2017 OHL Playoffs!
Our fans are a HUGE part of this team’s success and have an impact on both the energy around the city and in the Essar Centre itself.
We’re looking forward to seeing the atmosphere in the Essar Centre build during the first round of the playoffs!
Great seats are available NOW for Games 1 & 2 directly at the Essar Centre Box Office.
Remember, the Season Ticket Holder deadline to opt into a Playoff Ticket Package is Sunday March 19 at 4PM.
Be sure to monitor this site and our social media pages (Facebook and Twitter) for the release of our Round 1 schedule.
