July 30,2014(ISN) – Salmon Arm, BC – The Salmon Arm Silverbacks Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is pleased to
announce a very successful mid-summer slogan contest resulting in a tie between two
awesome fans, Shauna Stewart and Betty Mohninger, for submitting a slogan idea that
was collectively finalized as Our Team. Our Town. Our Game.
Melanie Hart, Silverbacks Marketing & Director of Communications said, “The
submissions from these two ladies confirmed my ideal slogan concept for this year.
So when not one but two fans came up with this very concept – the choice was clear.
The 2014/2015 Season is the year for our community to take ownership of this team as
‘our’ very own. The contribution of this Junior ‘A’ Club is invaluable to ‘Our Town’
– on and off the ice, and year round for economy, our kids, our families, and our
business community. And, this is ‘Our Game’. Canadians from coast to coast to coast
love the game of hockey. The Silverbacks’ committed fan base, army of volunteers,
and corporate sponsors echo this sentiment right here in Salmon Arm.”
We received dozens of excellent submissions through social media and e-mails, and
each and every one was considered by our staff, and all were certainly enjoyed! The
submissions showed humor, team spirit and support of our team. So the staff would
like to thank ALL who took the time to send in your ideas!
Special mention goes out to the children of the Ferguson family for sending us your
long list of slogans that embody the team spirit we at the Silverbacks want to live
out both on and off the ice.
Again, we wish to congratulate our winners Shauna Stewart and Betty Mohninger for
teaming up with us in defining our 2014/2015 team slogan!
