The Owen Sound Attack is pleased to announce that the Hockey Club will be making a purchase donation to the City of Owen Sound and the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre by having new boards put into the playing surface of the J.D. McArthur Arena, the home of the Owen Sound Attack. Entirely new boards, kick plate and top strip will be installed into the J.D. McArthur Arena prior to the start of the 2010-2011 Ontario Hockey League season.
“Looking at other OHL facilities, this is something that needed to be done,” stated Brent Fisher on behalf of the Attack Ownership Group. Fisher went on to say that, “This is not only our home; it is the home of numerous minor sports organizations, various men’s and women’s rec leagues, High School sports and so on. Our Ownership Group is proud to be a key contributor to sports and recreation in this community and look forward to doing so for many more years to come.”
The estimated cost of this project is $8,500.00 and adds to the five year, $50,000.00 commitment the Attack has put forth to the Regional Recreation Centre Fundraising Committee.
