Selena Yorke was one ecstatic 10-year-old Saturday morning when a white van delivered a special gift to her home on the Langley/ Surrey border. The fifth grader from Langley Meadows Community School is the recipient of what will be a life-changing donation from Canadian Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co., an international company with an office in Burnaby. Selena loves music, cheerleading and rollercoasters. She is also facing a life-threatening disease called Friedreich’s ataxia, a rare neuromuscular disorder that affects every cell in her body, including her heart. Selena will lose the ability to do everyday things that she loves to do with her friends, such as walking, dancing, and even singing. Even tasks like taking a bath or shower can no longer be taken for granted. The disease will get progressively worse. There is no cure for Friedreich’s ataxia. Selena is on a medley of vitamins, anti-oxidants and supplements to help her improve her quality of life. Selena’s family – which includes her dad Brad, mom Cari, and big “This is an brother Noah – is facing sigunbelievable gift to nificant finangive to Selena and our cial obstacles family.” in order to make necessary Brad Yorke renovations on their home to accommodate her needs. Canadian Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. was so touched by Selena’s story, it donated a walkin tub and shower to the family. The tub was boxed in purple – Selena’s favourite colour – and delivered to the family’s home around 9 a.m. on Saturday. “I was very excited,” Selena said with a wide smile. “Before, it was really hard to get into the bathtub. I had to swing my leg over the bathtub and my mom had to really help.” Brad said the family is overwhelmed and excited. “This is an unbelievable gift to give to Selena and our family,” he said. “This is going to help immensely. Getting her in and out of the tub was getting more and more difficult. This is definitely going to give her more independence.” Brad said it’s been a “tough year” for the family, but the support they have received from their family, friends, and the community has helped to make it easier. And like the rest of the family, he was over the moon about the gift. “This is definitely a life-changer for this little girl over here,” Brad said, motioning to his daughter sitting nearby at the family’s kitchen table. “Right, Selena?” Later Saturday, friends and family held a benefit in her honour at Cascades Casino, but

Racing to get study

Driving home the message The Langley Teachers’ Association organized a protest for afterschool on April 15 at the intersection of 200th Street and the Langley Bypass to show members’ displeasure over the lack of funding for education and the impacts in recent years, namely on class size and composition. The teachers’ union said Langley has some of the largest classes in B.C. Taking View video with part was Debbie Maloway.

Arts debate

Artists quiz trio of candidates Andrew Mercier, Shane Dyson, and Mary Polak talked to Langley Arts Council executive director Lilianne Fuller.

A civil discussion about arts funding kicked off the season of all-candidate’s meetings in Langley. by Matthew Claxton

The first meeting of rival candidates in Langley for the 2013 provincial election was a calm exchange of views about arts funding. The Langley Arts Council brought two NDP candidates and a Liberal together Saturday to talk to its members Saturday afternoon. The LAC asked three questions of incumbent Langley Liberal MLA Mary Polak, her NDP opponent Andrew Mercier, and Fort Langley-Aldergrove NDPer Shane Dyson, about whether an arts facility could benefit a community economically, if arts contribute to health and wellness, and about arts facilities supporting youths. Not surprisingly, all three candidates agreed that arts are a vital part of the community and can aid in mental and physical well being, as well as boosting the local economy. The question of a permanent arts centre was on the mind of the dozen Arts Council members who attended the discussion. The council’s current gallery and workspace, on Fraser Highway,

The issue of racing at the former Langley Speedway is not a dead one, decided a Metro Vancouver committee Thursday. The Environment and Parks Committee voted to have staff analyze the idea of bringing back auto racing, for up to 14 days per year, at the old racetrack in Campbell Valley Regional Park in South Langley. Township Councillor Bob Long voted in favour of the staff report, telling the Langley Advance that Metro needs to look at creative ways to raise revenues in order to buy more parkland in the future. “Whether racing can be compatible with other park uses remains to be proven,” Long wrote in an email. “Anything is possible including electric cars!” The proposal came from the Langley Speedway Historical Society, a local group of car buffs and racing fans who have spent the past several years collecting and preserving the history of the 3/8 of a mile track. The Speedway, located at the foot of 208th Street south of 16th Avenue, started operation in the 1960s and ran for about 20 years, with its last season in 1984. The land that includes the racetrack was sold to the regional district in the late 1960s as a park, but a series of lease agreements kept racing going for more than 15 years. Races included three seasons of NASCAR in the 1970s, one of the few B.C. venues to host such an event. Murray Jones and other Speedway Historical Society members have collected images and memorabilia from the track’s heydey, as well as working to clear away invasive plants from the track and the old seating areas, now a grassy slope. Equestrians and other park users have already expressed strong opposition to the idea of racing coming back to the park.

Cannon rules created Plans are afoot to regulate the loud bird-scaring cannons Langley Township.

by Matthew Claxton

Langley Township’s plans to tighten up its propane cannon bylaws won’t include a ban. Propane cannons are loud, booming devices used on berry farms to scare away birds. Frustrated neighbours have called for them to be restrained or eliminated. A special committee was created last year to look into options and gather input. On Monday, council voted for a series of five recommendations to mitigate bird cannon noise,

within provincial Ministry of Agriculture guidelines: • Adding setbacks and reducing cannon firing frequency near municipal trails or horse farms; • Creating Township-managed registration and licensing for the users of scare devices; • A fine structure for bylaw violators, at $150 for first offences, $300 for two, and $500 for three or more; • Communication with farmers, including about alternative methods of bird control; • Consideration of decibel

levels for a noise-regulation standard. Provincial regulations protecting farming practices preclude the Township banning bird cannons. Once Township staff prepare a bylaw, it will be brought to the council for debate and possible amendment. At a public meeting earlier this year, residents called for a number of alternatives, including using falcons, or outlined how the cannons have damaged their quality of life or their own nearby farming operations.

Attention Lower Mainland Home Owners: 23 of you are about to make an important financial decision...

“Frustrated Contractor ‘Giving Away’ $5136 Furnaces for $1181 with Off-Season Central Air ...”

NO MONEY DOWN, NO PAYMENTS AND INTEREST FREE TIL 2014* (This is the Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century” ... especially if your furnace is over 8 years old)

Dear Friend I’m about to make you a deal that’s hard to refuse if you’ve got an “older” (and probably less than optimally efficient) furnace. I’ll replace your old furnace AND heat pump as a “package deal” for at least $3136.00 less than you would pay any other time of the year. Sound too good to be true? It’s not and here’s why. I’m making you what sounds like an unbelievable offer because it actually makes good sense for my business. And you come out a winner, as well! You see, I know from experience that in my slowest months I actually end up losing money ... then I have to spend the rest of the year trying to make up for it. Right now, I have no reason to believe 2013 will be any different. That’s why I’ve decided to give up trying to make a profit during these months and minimize my losses ... so I can come out ahead the rest of the year. So here’s how I can make the incredible offer at the top of this letter. Every year the biggie furnace manufacturers guesstimate how many furnaces to produce. Since there’s no way of knowing what the weather will be like and other factors that affect sales, these guys always have leftover inventory they have to hold onto until the next heating season. I saw a great business opportunity in this and went to one of these biggie companies (they won’t allow me to use their name in this letter) and contracted for the purchase of these furnaces that were going to just be sitting around. Plus, I bought 23 heat pumps all in the 3 most popular sizes used in Lower Mainland homes. Because of the number I bought and the time of year I purchased them, I got an unbelievable deal ... rock-bottom prices. Don’t get me wrong - these are brand-new, top quality, 2013 models. Not “seconds.” Not “blems.” Not builder-grade. These are premium furnaces and heat pumps fresh from a name-brand factory with a full factory warranty. How to Get Your Name Brand Furnace for Virtually Nothing By putting together this furnace-plusheat pump package (I call it the “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century”), going through some heavy negotiations with the manufacturer, and then committing to

Scott Campbell

Local Business Owner

buying 23 systems outright, I got BOTH the furnace AND the heat pump at a price that would have made Sam Walton proud. This means when you buy one of these 23 new, premium-quality heat pumps I will “give” you the furnace and ask you to pay only the $1181 in labor it costs to install your furnace. Pick up your phone right now Simply call me at 946-1000 at anytime so I can come out and measure your home (to see if I’ve got the proper size unit). Remember ... I’ve got only 23 matched systems in 3 sizes so you’ll want to let me know VERY SOON that you’re interested. When these 23 systems are gone, they’re gone, and this offer is null and void. Call me right now so we can get the ball rolling! As part of the deal, I’ll show you how much the heat pump costs ... how much the furnace WOULD have cost ... and your savings when you buy your new heat pump and furnace as part of this special offer. The price I show you will include all installation materials and labor. There’s no fine print, nothing left out. Earlier I said that making you this amazing offer is also good business for me The way I look at it, by letting YOU win big now, I’ll win at the end of the year. And I won’t have to “make up” for the lost sales during my slowest months. I figure if I make you an absolutely irresistible offer .. if your furnace is pushing 8 years or more ... and if I barely mark up the price I paid, I’ll accomplish 2 major objectives that will allow me to reduce my losses the rest of the year. I’ll be able to ... • Pay my overhead (rent, utilities, insurance and taxes) during the slow period • Keep my service & installation technicians busy enough to pay them to work instead of sit at home. As you can see, when you take me up on my “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century,” EVERYONE IS A WINNER! And by the way, there’s no obligation when you have me come out to measure your house and explain the installation If you decide you don’t want to take advantage of this incredible deal (although I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to save this kind of money), it’s no problem. You’re not obligated in any way. In fact, just for taking time to read this letter and having me out to survey your house ... I’ll give you a Very Special Free Gift Coupon ($50

value). Why? Even if we don’t do business together now, I want you to remember us in the future. If you’re thinking a new furnace (& heat pump) isn’t in your budget - don’t worry! You don’t have to pay me right now Because I’ve tried to think of every reason possible why you WOULDN’T take me up on this spectacular offer, I’ve even made arrangements for a super bank rate financing plan. And I’m not “marking up” the interest rate like so many other companies do. While I can’t promise you this, it’s possible that with this financing plan your monthly investments in a new system could be more than paid for by the savings you see on your monthly utility bills. My Disappointment-Proof Guarantee Talking about lower utility bills, I’m so sure you’ll see at least a 25% cut in your heating and cooling bills (in reality, it may be more like 35%+), if you don’t I’ll pay you twice the difference for 2 years. Not only are you getting a new, first-quality furnace virtually free, plus a first-quality heat pump at a great price, I guarantee you’ll lower your heating and cooling bills by at least 25% or I’ll pay you double your savings for 2 years. (This alone should convince you that these systems are some of the very best quality and most efficient available). But you’ve got to act fast ... call me at 9461000 right now! This offer ends April 30th no matter what Don’t wait to call me. Here’s why. I have only 8 of each of the 3 sizes. When all of the air conditioners are sold and all the furnaces “given away” in a certain size, the “Hottest AND Coolest Deal of the Century” is over. And if I still have any of the 23 systems left on April 30th, this offer still ends. The reason is that my business only slows down for a short time. Since these furnaces cost me so little, if I’ve got any left, I’ll sell them next winter at last year’s prices and still come out ahead. So call me right now at 946-1000 Thanking you in advance, Scott Campbell Owner P.S. Remember, there’s no obligation and - even if you change your mind once I measure your house and give you the estimate - you still get that Free Gift Coupon worth $50.

Local MS Walk raises $18K by Troy Landreville

View with

Sunday was a dog-gone fine day to go for a walk while at the same time raising money to help support those afflicted with multiple sclerosis. An unusually large number of walkers of the fourlegged variety were part of the Scotiabank MS Walk’s Langley event that started and finished at Douglas Park. In Langley, 150 people took part, raising more than $18,000 in pledges and donations. The money will be used for future MS research and to fund Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada support programs. A number of dogs from the Little Paws Rescue Society and other organizations including a local dog agility group also took part in the walk. Participants chose to walk, run, or wheel a three-kilometre route or a more challenging sixkilometre journey through Langley City. Special guests included Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, MS ambassador Pamela Springsman, and the Langley jazzercise team.

Election result in your hands

As of today (barring the dangerously unexpected), the “writ has dropped” and the province of British Columbia is in election mode. This is democracy, folks, and you’re part of it. This is when you get to make the decisions that really count: because the decisions you make in the coming month will determine who makes the decisions that steer your community and your province, economically and socially, for the next four years. This is an important election… they all are. Whatever the pollsters may try to tell you, the results are not a foregone conclusion. It may sound trite when the politicians say it (and Email with it is, admittedly, usually said by those who don’t like what the polls say at any given moment), the only poll that counts is the one that takes place on election day – the one that’s counted after the ballot boxes are opened by bona fide Elections BC personnel. Some people consider this whole democracy thing an unwelcome chore, others will ignore it altogether – an annoyance that will go away in a few weeks. And then they’ll complain about “poor leadership” and how they don’t really have any control. But we’re going to do our best to give you as much information as we can about all the candidates and the issues that affect you directly. We’ll use Twitter @langleyadvance and our website at, Facebook and Layar, and of course, these printed pages to convey your candidates’ responses to election issues as they arise. Just ask the billions of people on this planet who would die – literally – for the democracy so many of us take for granted. They would tell you to pay attention, study your options, and make an informed decision on May 14. The decision really is yours. – B.G.

Public hearings not worth attending Dear Editor, The Salmon River Enhancement Society spoke at public hearings in 2012, opposing the Wall development proposal and expressing reservations about the TWU University District. We have been joined by many citizens who are not members of SRES, including the Fort Langley Community Association. The FLCA concerns are especially relevant, given that the Wall proposal may increase pressures on the Fort Langley floodplain. This topic will be featured at the FLCA and SRES Forum on the floodplain on May 23. Recent history, including the Parklane apartment wall, the Willoughby Forewest development, the Coulter Berry building, and the first version of the Wall and TWU public hearings set a new low for council listening to and respecting public input. The April 15 continuation of the Wall public hearing fiasco looked to be more of the same.

The Township needs major change to reinstate the sort of transparency and good governance that all of us should expect. SRES had previously stated, when the Wall proposal and the University District were brought forward once again last December, that we would provide our input via email and to the press, but we would not speak at the public hearing. We have decided that we would again not speak at the April 15 continuation. We no longer feel that attending public hearings and having council ignore

our input is a suitable investment of the time of volunteers who reap no monetary benefit for the many hours they have contributed to this community. As stated by the FLCA the final outcome of the public airing of divergent and opposing points of view, which is the hallmark of participatory democracy, must demonstrate some congruence between the majority view and a predictable result. The Township has earned a failing grade in this regard. Doug McFee, Salmon River Enhancement Society

Fort Langley

Jag prowls over to St. George’s show A 1961 Jaguar owned by North Otter resident Chris Bennett for 38 years will be part of a British car event in Fort Langley. by Troy Landreville

It hasn’t always been sunshine and rainbows for Chris Bennett and his 1961 Jaguar XK 150. In 1976, roughly a year after he bought it, the car broke while Bennett and his new wife drove it through San Francisco on their honeymoon. Joan had to take the bus back to B.C.

Equipped with a drophead coupe, four-speed transmission, 220 horsepower, and overdrive, the Jaguar will be among the more than 75 British vehicles on display in front of the Fort Langley Community Hall on Sunday, April 21. It is only by sheer coincidence that Bennett still owns the car that he’s about to put on display in Fort Langley.

our mayors: Peter Fassbender and Jack Froese What makes Langley a great place to live? Both mayors are enthusiastic about Langley’s central location, our range of housing options, and our great parks.

We’ve got great parks and trails and bicycle networks that people can use and then we have good opportunities for employment here as well.”

> “Transportation continues to be a major challenge for us in ensuring that we not only catch up in terms of what we need today but that we plan effectively for the future.” Mayor Peter Fassbender

Fassbender point to the congestion many residents live with on a daily basis as a priority issue for their councils.

In the township’s six communities (Aldergrove; Murrayville; Brookswood; Walnut Grove; Willoughby; and Fort Langley), Froese anticipates most of the growth to occur in Willoughby, after which we will start to see Brookswood develop more. |œŒ‰‰„Ž•r Œ Ž„Œ…Ž €„  ŒŽ…Œn’–…€ sƒ–…Œ„… over the next couple of years,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of land that’s undeveloped and the homebuilders are active in there and are constantly putting up new homes. We’re going €‚„Ž „‚ „n’Œ–‰ ’„††…Œ€r ƒ‰–… ƒ‘–€ –…‘ that is going to change Brookswood into some more density. But we’re still in the process of getting public input and how that will actually look in the future, time will tell.” “Our growth in the city of Langley is going to be measured at about two per cent a year,” commented Fassbender, “but around the city of Surrey, township of Langley, Abbotsford, their growth patterns are much more dramatic. That has a positive effect on us from an economic point of view because we have a lot of retail in our community.

The township is concentrating its increases in density to transit corridors and is looking at the land adjacent to the new Carvolth Park & Ride as a place that could be developed so the people who move in could step out their doors and hop on a bus rather than taking their cars everywhere.

The transportation challenge With growth come challenges. Both Froese and

“Transportation continues to be a major challenge for us in ensuring that we not only catch up in terms of what we need today, but that we plan effectively for the future,” said Fassbender. “We’ve been working with TransLink and looking at the future of the transportation corridors in our community and how they connect to the communities around us. We’re looking at what the modality options are for us, everything from SkyTrain to at-grade rail to more integrated bus services. So we’re strongly advocating for that and will continue to.” Added Froese, “We don’t have the luxury of transit some of the other municipalities have. The Carvolth Park & Ride is really helping get people in and out of our community, but we need to have transportation within the community so people can have options and get them out of the cars and onto transit.”

Community engagement Involving citizens in building our communities is important to both mayors. “We have lots of great volunteers,” said Fassbender. “We work with all of the various agencies in our community. We have a group called the Langley Healthier Community Partnership that we initiated along with our neighbours, where we sit down and talk about the needs and the aspirations of our communities. So we are a catalyst, I think, to helping a lot of that discussion and we work closely with our volunteer groups to make sure we keep our eye on the big picture. And we also work hard to make our community feel safe and engaging and where people want to come. We’re trying very hard to maintain our personality that we’ve developed over the years.” Froese talked about the community building that has gone into plans for the proposed new rec centre in Aldergrove. “One of the things that we did was strike a committee whose sole purpose was to reach out to the community and hold workshops and get information. That committee recently n…Œ‘ Œ€ †–…‘–€ –…‘ ƒ‚„~Œ‘‘  tŒ€ – report,” said the mayor. “The progress we’ve made on the recreation centre is one of my proudest accomplishments as mayor.

The second oldest community in Langley, its roots date back to the mid-1870’s when its founder and namesake, Paul Murray, along with his three sons, staked the land at each corner of the New Westminster-Yale Road-Fort Langley Trail intersection.

Kasahara went on to say that because Winchester Estates is built on the crest of a ridge, the community boasts stunning views of Langley city centre, the verdant farmland and the Golden Ears Mountains – something newcomers –‚ ƒ‰––…€‰r ‚ƒ‚Œ‘ €„ n…‘ „€ about.

Cornerstone North

Langley is emerging as one of the most sought-after communities in the Lower Mainland because of its blend of urban sophistication coupled with its rural, pastoral landscape.

“This is the sister building to Cornerstone but it’s slightly different,” says Liz Anderson, partner at Key Marketing, who is overseeing sales for the development.

In the heart of Langley is where one of the most respected builders in the province, Marcon, makes its home and its building Cornerstone North. Like its predecessor, Cornerstone North is built on a grassy landscaped totally gated podium, which means all of the homes are up off the street ‰~‰› „ € Ž‚„…‘ m„„‚ „† –‚ extremely secure and private.

Kwantlen Polytechnic University

Dr. Alan Davis KPU President and Vice-Chancellor


“The City of Langley is a great place to live, work and play. Our population density and thriving economy

By Michelle Hopkins attract businesses that want to become part of our long-term growth,” says Peter Fassbender, mayor, City of Langley. “KPU is a vital link between our young workforce and the diverse business opportunities that we have now and will continue to develop. KPU is well-positioned to respond to the growth of our region and its increased post-secondary education needs.” “Universities are key economic drivers in any community. We are proud to have KPU in our region,” says Jack Froese, mayor, Township of Langley. “We look forward to strengthening our ties with KPU to help foster innovation as we move forward with our economic development plans and diversify our local economy, increase local employment opportunities and create a learning community. As the Township grows, so too will our need for increased access to education and skills training. KPU will be integral to nlling that need.”


Change and innovation – these are hallmarks of Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Langley campus. KPU is leading the way in many of its Langley-based programs, most notably in horticulture, sciences, health and music. KPU’s School of Horticulture is already being touted as a shining example of originality. The Canadian Foundation for Innovation awarded over $2.2 million to fund research into new production systems, crops for green energy greenhouses and development of biocontrols for horticulture crops. “We have a great research institution in horticulture - a very strong program with strong instructors,” says Dr. Alan Davis, KPU president and vice-chancellor. Its ground-breaking courses are designed to prepare students for careers in sustainable agriculture, greenhouse production, environmental protection, plant health and more.

A well-regarded apprenticeship program is a key component. Students literally get their hands dirty in an outdoor classroom for research, demonstration and crop production. The neld lab has —.” hectares of gardens and beds representing a full range of landscapes. “When you add the cutting-edge science labs, a botany lab, greenhouses, polyhouses, container and in-ground nurseries, you have created the best environment for students to succeed,” says Dr. Davis. KPU’s Langley campus is also renowned for its strong music, health and science faculties. KPU’s Faculty of Community and Health Studies (CAHS) offers programs that are grounded in the concepts of caring, collaboration, inclusion and development of healthier communities. CAHS programs vary in length from four year bachelor degrees to nve month citations. The arts curriculum includes a Bachelor of Music in Musical Arts, a Diploma in Music and Associate of Arts: Music. KPU’s classrooms, teaching studios and individual practice rooms were specincally created for music instruction from solo to orchestral performance. “Our Langley campus is the most communityengaged campus of all four,” adds Davis. “As the population of Langley and neighbouring communities grows, KPU will add programs to make sure that what we offer is always pertinent to Langley. In fact, we collaborate with both the City and Township regularly to ensure our programs are the right ones.” Building strong community connections is a key objective for KPU.

All 23 members of the 10th Langley Scout Troop B pitched in at their recent restaurant fundraiser. Acting as waitresses, cooks, dishwashers, and hostesses, they invited 105 of their family and friends to dine at their very own restaurant for the night. Serving a selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts with a smile, they raised $850 which they plan to donate to Jitihada orphanage in Tanzania, helping to purchase a school bus to save their young students the three-hour daily walk to school.

Langley Olympians Swim Club members were in two locations, at two different kinds of competitions recently. A handful of the club’s elite wore Olympians’ colours at the 2013 Canadian World Trials, which took place over four days at Saanich Commonwealth Place in Victoria. Four-hundred-fifty-six of the country’s best swimmers representing 109 clubs from nine Canadian provinces and the Yukon territory were in Victoria for the meet. The fastest swimmers at the meet were chosen to represent Canada at this summer’s FINA World Championships in Barcelona, Spain from July 19 to Aug. 4. Teams for the World University Games and

City of Langley “The Place to Be!”

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING MONDAY, APRIL 22, 2013 NOTICE is hereby given that the Council of the City of Langley will hold a Public Hearing in the Council Chambers, Langley City Hall, 20399 Douglas Crescent, Langley, BC at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, April 22, 2013 to allow the public to make verbal or written representation to Council with respect to the following proposed bylaw.

European Junior Tour were also nominated. LOSC swimmer Chelsey Salli, 21, placed second in the 100m breaststroke, just missing out on a place on the Canadian team by 0.3 of a second. Salli also took bronze in the 50m breaststroke and fourth place in 200m breaststroke. She still has a chance to make the world team. Former Canadian Olympian Jake Tapp, 24, made finals in the 200m IM and 100m fly, placing fourth and sixth, respectively. Hillary Metcalfe, 14, in the 200m freestyle, set a new 13-14 year girls club record in a time of 2:11.33.

Chantal Glowacka, 13, of the Langley Olympians steamed towards the wall in the 50m breaststroke during the local swim club’s novice meet held Saturday morning at the Walnut Grove Community Centre’s pool.

LAFC builds towards 2014 season

…continued from page A27 Rohla said taking a year off isn’t a bad thing, if the end result is a nicer venue. “We’re really starting to gain some traction after last year,” he added, “but

unfortunately, if you don’t own your facility, you are at the mercy of other groups, which is okay, too.” LAFC is building a geographical rivalry with nearby Bellingham United

and Rohla believes that will continue once the club resumes play in 2014. “We have a good product and have a good venue, and we want to build into that,” he said.
