"We wish Ian and his family nothing but the best in this endeavour and look forward to seeing him back around the Bayshore in his travels.", concluded DeGray.

Dale DeGray and his scouting staff will oversee Attack Rookie Camp and Training Camp. Owen Sound Attack Rookie Camp will open at the Bayshore on Monday, August 25th. A full schedule will be released soon.
