More from Fort Van
|Well... The Columbian gives us not one, but two articles today. The first, Transportation costs drive Pioneers out, gives Brian Cheek's version of the story, and sure enough it's more he said/she said. Though while Rick Smith is quoted in the article, he doesn't refute the Pioneers' claim the league was to provide the transportation. I don't know if that's intentional, or just how the article was written. Cheeks also admits that the no-show Friday in Lillooet was a set up as to not allow the WHA to get the gate for that night. The article also lists landing zones for some of the displaced players.|
The second article, Players, arena lose out as team folds, discusses who will and won't get refunds. In case you are keeping score: Players, the rink, and sponsors are out money. Season ticket holders have been getting refunds, however.
