Yorkton Terriers (SJHL) announce resignation of President


(Terriers Press Release)

Dave Baron, president of the Yorkton Terriers announced his plans to resign as president and

board member for the Yorkton Terriers. “This is something I’ve thought long and hard about. It’s
no secret that the club is struggling - financially and on the ice. I’ve been involved with this team
for a long time, but I think the time is right for me to step aside and let others with fresh ideas
come forward to lead changes that need to be made” stated Baron.

Alan Sharp, current Vice-President, will assume the responsibilities of the President until the next
Annual General Meeting, planned for June. “Dave has given hundreds and hundreds of hours of
his time to this team over the years. You only do that if you have a great passion for hockey and
the Yorkton Terriers. We thank Dave for his commitment and dedication to the club. I recognize
that this was a tough decision for him” added Sharp.

Baron’s resignation takes place immediately. The board of directors currently has a number of
vacant positions. Sharp adds that there are individuals who have expressed interest in joining
the board. “Once the board has had an opportunity to meet and discuss all of our options
moving forward, one of the things we will discuss is appointing some new people to the board,
until the next Annual General Meeting, to help us decide the steps we need to take to rebuild the
Yorkton Terriers Organization.”

Sharp concluded by stating that “obviously we’re disappointed with the performance of our team
this year. We’re also very concerned about the financial situation of the club. We believe this
team can and should be a model franchise in the SJHL – one that the community, fans, billets,
players and sponsors can be proud of. We are committed, as a board, to doing the work we need
to do to help this organization reach its potential.”
