Paint the town red for Soo Greyhounds and win! #IgniteTheNorth


With the 2018 Ontario Hockey League playoffs on the horizon, and following the release of this year’s slogan (#IgniteTheNorth), the Soo Greyhounds are issuing a call for contest participants in their “Paint the Town Red” contest.

The contest is open to all members of the community and will be separated into three categories.
1. Residential

The “Paint the Town Red” contest has been created to generate excitement and support for the Greyhounds and the 2018 playoffs through all dwellings in our community.

Participants are encouraged to decorate, theme, and showcase their dwelling, business and/or classroom while being creative in showing their support for the #1 ranked team in the Canadian Hockey League.

Signs.  Banners.  Paint.  Posters.  Balloons.  Colour-schemes.  Simply use your creativity to create an attractive and compelling submission.

** Regardless of participation level, all residences, businesses and educational institution are encouraged to display the FAN FLAG by the club **

The Soo Greyhounds remind everyone that this is a family-oriented contest, and we ask those participating to stay within guidelines of respectful compliance regarding proper conduct.
