On Thursday, September 15 at 7:05pm, the Peterborough Petes Board of Directors will host season ticket holders in the first ever Petes Town Hall event at Market Hall in Peterborough. The purpose of the event is to hold an open forum for questions about the Petes organization, particularly relating to team governance, operations, and community relations.
Season Ticket Holders will receive an exclusive invite to the Town Hall event inside their 2016/17 season ticket booklets. The booklets can be picked up from the PMC Collins Barrow Box Office starting at noon on Thursday, August 25.
The free Town Hall event will be catered by downtown Peterborough-based blackhoney. Lisa Dixon and the staff at blackhoney have prepared an exciting menu of finger foods and desserts for Petes fans in attendance.
“The Town Hall event is a way for the Petes and the Board of Directors to refresh our relationships with key local stakeholders,” noted Petes President Dave Pogue. “We won’t be making a major announcement at the Town Hall or talking about specific hockey-related decisions like trades, but instead will be opening up the floor for higher-level questions about the operations of the team that we get asked consistently by many fans.”
To RSVP for the event, Season Ticket Holders must email firstname.lastname@example.org by September 5, 2016. Space is limited at the exclusive event, but if there is capacity remaining after the season ticket RSVP window closes, members of the general public will be invited to attend.
The format of the Town Hall will be similar to a Thursday night hockey game. First, second, and third period segments will be used to focus on team history, governance, community relations, hockey operations and business operations, with specific presentations and question periods scheduled for each topic.
At September 15’s Town Hall, members of the media will be asked to hold their questionsuntil a press availability segment at the end of the evening. The event is not expected to take more than two hours.
