The Nelson Leafs get ready to begin the quest for the 2012 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League title with the team’s annual general meeting Monday, May 30 at the Prestige Inn Lakeside Resort.

The meeting, beginning at 7 p.m., is a chance for fans to have input for the upcoming season.

“We don’t have any major things to talk about on the agenda,” said Leaf president Russell Stocks.

The night is reserved a discussion on the team’s finances along with nomination of directors and any other business fans would like to ask the executive.

The Leafs concluded its first season under the guidance of head coach and GM Chris Shaw.

Nelson finished the season in third place in Murdoch Division regular season standings before being knocked out by Beaver Valley Nitehawks in a seven-game division semi final.

The Leaf executive prior to the end of the season resigned Shaw to lead the green and white.

Expansion Osoyoos Coyotes defeated the Castlegar Rebels to claim the 2011 KIJHL title.

NOTES: The Leafs will hold a skills development camp July 25-29th at the NDCC Arena. The camp is divided into two divisions — regular skaters and elite skaters. The regular skater camp is for players 8-12 years while the elite division is for players 11-14-years. Register online at or call 250-352-1903. The five-day camp features 2.5 hours ice time and 1.5 hours of dry land and activities. Instruction is provided by Leaf coaches and players and includes a special guest instructor.
