Booster Club going from strength to strength
The Blaze Booster club was established in August 2013 by a group of passionate fans who wanted to find a way to help Blaze be the very best that they can be on the ice, whilst also offer fans the chance to win some fantastic prizes!
Three years later, and with a fresh new logo, thanks to the hard work of Dave Roberts, Mark O'Doherty, Tim Smith and Tim Ansell along with support from sponsor DRP Logistics and the 200+ supporters, the Booster Club have donated over £30,000 to the Blaze.
This money has been used in a variety of ways, to help bring in mid-season additons to the roster such as defenceman Justin DaCosta for example, who was pivotal to our playoff success of 2015, and to support the return of the man who masterminded that playoff victory, Chuck Weber last summer.
This next season, the Booster club will sponsor new Head Coach Danny Stewart and be the associate sponsor to both Ashley Tait and Robin Bergman.
In addition, and perhaps most crucially, the Booster Club along with another valued sponsor, Crowngate have made a significant contribution to the costs of bringing in 6'6" Canadian enforcer Garrett Klotz for the 2016/17 Elite League season.
Dave Roberts, representng the Blaze Booster club said, "Not everyone can afford to be a sponsor of the Blaze but by fans uniting and paying just £1 per-week we can as a group become a significant sponsor and financial contriburot to the Blaze. By becoming a member, not only will you help our club to be successful on the ice but you'll also be put into the draw which we hold every month to win some brilliant prizes. This summer, one lucky memeber won a season ticket for the 2016/17 season and for the June draw, five members won Blaze Own and Loan jerseys for the upcoming season!"
The July draw will take place on 7th August and will see 11 Booster members win prizes!
The prizes are as follows:
- Signed/Game Issued David Clements Blaze away jersey from the 2015/16 season (size 2xl)
- Six members will each win a pair of tickets to the pre-season 'Meet the players night' for Blaze sponsors (date tbc)
- Finally, four winners will win a very exclusive prize by being invited to a meal with Head Coach Danny Stewart at the new Hickory's Smokehouse in Burton Green, Coventry.
