The Kimberley Dynamiters held their Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, May 17 at Trickle Creek Lodge in Kimberley, BC.

During the meeting, James Leroux, who is now in his second year of being the Kimberley Dynamiters president, said that his priorities have been first to make sure that the team is making money, and second that the team is competitive.

He added that given his two priorities, he and the board are very pleased with the Nitros performance during the 2016-17 season.

The Dynamiters finished the season with a 33-13-0-1 record, good enough for second in the Eddie Mountain Division, and advanced to the Kootenay Conference Finals before losing to the eventual KIJHL and Cyclone Taylor Cup Champion Beaver Valley Nitehawks.

During Troy Pollock’s treasurer report, he agreed that the Dynamiters had a successful season both on and off the ice, crediting the playoff run as a major contributor to their financial success.

Head coach and general manager Derek Stuart, meanwhile, said during his report that he expects seven to twelve players to return from last season. He said that he had a lot of fun for his first season in the KIJHL, and is looking forward to returning next season.

After the reports, the board voted and elected the following representatives as their 2017-18 executive team: James Leroux, President; Glen Johnston, Vice President; Troy Pollock, Treasurer; Al Rice, Co-Treasurer; and Karrie Hall, Secretary.

The following are directors at large that take lead on various committees for the team: Amber Anderson, Scott Cameron, Chris Hall, Tasha Johnston, Chad Koran, Jodi L’Heureux, Nancy Sebolsky, Robyn Wardle, and Mitchell Zuvela.

The Dynamiters board is using the off-season to work on several projects as they prepare for the 2017-18 season.
