MJHL's Natives looking for support

The future of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Neepawa Natives is in doubt.

Lanny Stewart of myWestman.ca reported Tuesday that the community-owned club will hold a “Survive or Thrive” meeting on Tuesday at Neepawa’s Yellowhead Centre at 7 p.m., in the hopes of generating support for the floundering franchise.

“Sometimes people assume that everything is OK because no one has sounded an alarm,” Natives team president Dave McIntosh told myWestman.ca. “The club is in very real trouble.”

Stewart reports that the club is currently operating on a line of credit and needs to increase sponsorship and season ticket sales and the volunteer base in order to stay afloat.

“We need more help on committees. We need more income. We need more ideas and solutions,” McIntosh told Stewart.
