I would like to express my appreciation to all those who helped to make the publication of Hound Town so memorable for me. There was so much encouragement from family, friends, businesses, media and Soo Greyhounds’ fans. Since the first copies of Hound Town arrived in November, it has been a whirlwind of activity. All of the hours spent in attempting to create a book of which I would be proud, has been more that worthwhile because of its acceptance and the kind words of so many of you who have read it. Thank You!
Over the next while, I will post a weekly blog at www.houndtownhockey.com attempting to answer questions I receive and those already received from Greyhounds fans. The material from the blogs will also be posted on Twitter and Facebook. It has been fascinating to speak with so many people that have stories with respect to their Greyhounds’ memories. I am not a statistics person. That will be left to tremendous Greyhounds’ fans and historical experts such as Chris Sierzputowski and his cohorts that do a great job in keeping our interest.

Partly created by the interest generated during the research for the book, there will be some exciting announcements over the next few months. You will want to stay tuned. If any of you have recent contact information for any Soo Greyhounds’ former players or fans that have Soo Greyhounds’ memorabilia, please send to my email address at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next week, I will answer the most asked question that I have received over the years - Did Wayne Gretzky really play for the Soo Greyhounds?
