Minor sports teams often have to try to come up with interesting fundraising ideas.
The Guelph Junior Gryphons Minor Atom AAA hockey team is doing “The Gryphon Attack.” It sees them contact places of business to see if they will donate, and allow the team to “stick it to them” in support of the squad.
Seventeen sticks – one per player – get plunked into the ground in front of a business, along with a sign.
The team is hoping to raise funds, and to promote the new partnership Guelph minor hockey has with the Guelph Gryphons.
Starting this season, Guelph rep teams will wear the Gryphons name, logo and colours. In recent years, they were called the Junior Storm.
