The Estevan Bruins reported a surplus from 2021 to 2022 during their Annual General Meeting Monday evening.
A financial statement from the hockey club shows the team had a surplus of $11,447 as of April 30, 2022. This was for the year-over-year period from April 30, 2021 to April 30, 2022.
The surplus does not include revenue generated from Game 7 of the 2022 SJHL Finals, which took place on May 6.
"We're in a better spot financially than we have been since I joined the board, but we still don't want to take our foot off the pedal," said Bruins President Josh Biggs. "We're not going to sit back and not do fundraising just because we have a positive balance in the bank."
The team also revealed it currently has 726 season tickets sold. This is up from the 701 that were sold during the 2021-2022 season.
Another item that came up at the meeting was the new score clock that is slated to go up at Affinity Place.
"The good news is that it's bought and it's paid for, and it's ours...we just don't know where it is," City Councillor Tony Sernick joked. "After consultation with the supplier, IKS Media in Regina, a 5-day window is required to complete the project. Currently the main clock components are in the manufacturing stage in Asia, and they anticipate to ship in November of this year."
With Affinity Place fully booked this season, Sernick said the city's recommendation is to install the new clock once the season is over, when the ice is removed some time in May or June.
Sernick added that there is currently no agreement in place for the purchase of the existing score clock.
The new score clock is part of the legacy project from the 2022 Centennial Cup.
