Fort Nelson Yeti President Ryan Carter admits he wasn’t surprised by the outcome. He says the team will now focus on scheduling exhibition games for the upcoming season and put in a bid to host the Coy Cup.

“The vote was secret ballot so we weren’t given feedback on the outcome of the vote. I think it was a little bit better than last time but obviously not successful. It isn’t surprising to us so we’re going to do what we did last year. We’ll do exhibition games and we’re putting in a bid to host the Coy Cup in Fort Nelson as well for this year.” 

The team may look to join other leagues for the 2015/2016 season but for now won’t be putting forward other proposals as originally planned.

“We might do that in the future. Hopefully with a bit more time this summer for scheduling we can get more games and hopefully we’re successful in getting the Coy Cup here,” Carter says. “Maybe we’ll look at our options next summer for looking at other leagues.”

The Yeti expect to find out about their Coy Cup bid in December.
