Dawgs are sailing along.

As of June 22, the 10-6 Okotoks Dawgs are starting to find their stride. After posting their biggest offensive victory last night against the Edmonton Prospects, a 17-3 win, the new Dawgs are settling into their new team quite nicely.

Good home crowds of around 2000 per game are enjoying the great summer nights and a great baseball atmosphere at Seamans Stadium.

With the regular season about 1/3 completed, you can't put off not coming out to a ballgame.

It's good to see many of our AJHL Okotoks Oilers fans out to the Dawgs games.

The Okotoks Parade held this past Saturday had both of our sports teams parading down the street. Here's a few pictures from the parade.

Dawgs even their w/l record

The Okotoks Dawgs evened their 2009 record on Wednesday night to 3 and 3 with an impressive 3-0 win over the Edmonton Prospects. On a very pleasant night, a good crowd cheered on the hometeam to victory. Check out all the details on the Dawgs website.

Dawgs home opener

The Okotoks Dawgs opened the 2009 season on a cool, drizzly night at Seaman stadium. While they lost 8-3 to the visiting Lethbridge Bulls, it was a fun night.

Pretty well a sell-out, it was good to see some of our old baseball buddies such as Reid, Joanne, Dave and of course, our hockey fans too.

There are 23 home games. We are missing tonights game (game 2 against Edmonton) because of the John Fogerty concert, but will be back to the diamond on Saturday, weather permitting.

Here's a nice Calgary Herald picture of Dawgs starting picture Jeff Duda from last night.

AJHL league meetings

The Alberta Junior Hockey League held its 2009 Annual General Meeting on May 30th in Red Deer, Alberta.

The only major change is the following;

The 2009-2010 AJHL Regular Season Schedule will consist of 16 teams playing an unbalanced schedule of 60 games apiece beginning on Friday, September 11th, 2009. The AJHL Board of Governors voted to remove two regular season games from the schedule at the 2009 Semi Annual Meeting in January.

The League will continue with the same Playoff format as used in the 2009 AJHL Playoffs; the format is up for renewal in the 2010-2011 season. In 2010, the AJHL will grant home ice advantage to the Division Champions throughout the AJHL Playoffs.
