NEW OWNERSHIP ANNOUNCED

The Vernon Vipers Hockey Club would like to announce an ownership change effective today(SEPTEMBER 7, 2018). The Club has been sold by owner Libby Wray and has been purchased by Tom and John Glen.

The Club was originally purchased by Dr. Duncan Wray in 1992 and was owned until his passing on January 11, 2018.

Libby Wray says this was an extremely tough decision. "This club was something my husband was very passionate about and we wanted to make the right decision going forward. The Glens will be excellent owners and very committed to the City of Vernon and the legacy which Duncan created. I truly believe the club is in great hands."

John Glen, who has had significant Junior A Hockey experience , states,

"We would like to extend our thanks and sincere appreciation to the Wray family for making this opportunity possible and for their dedication to the BCHL and the Vernon Vipers over the past 26 years."

"We are thrilled to become part of the Vernon Vipers legacy and look forward to being involved in the community of Vernon and with the loyal sponsors, fans and supporters. As a hockey family ourselves we are very excited for the 18-19 season and for many successful seasons to follow."
