Logo Contest
Submitted By Erin Tsilibanis on Thursday, January 11, 2018
Dear GMHA families,  

I am greatly disappointed to announce that the rebranding of our Grimsby Minor Hockey Association ‘Kings’ to ‘Peach Kings’,  in partnership with the Peach Kings Jr C team, was unsuccessful...   

Back in November, the GMHA board unanimously approved the motion to approach the Peach King Jr C team to allow our association to share the name ‘Peach Kings’.  Since we share a town, an arena and a love for hockey, coming together to share a name and a logo seemed to be the right move! 

The GMHA formed a rebranding committee with the Peach Kings Jr C to launch a Logo Contest and the response was outstanding with over 180 submissions from entries of all ages.  The committee then narrowed these down to six submissions, all of which the GMHA would be happy to have represented as our logo.  After much discussion, the Peach King Jr C representatives decided to stay status quo and couldn't come to an agreement to move forward with any of the logo submissions.    

The GMHA respects the Peach Kings decision and will still move forward with our rebranding efforts and will remain as the ‘Kings’ along with our current colours Red/Black/White.  Our rebranding committee will be working hard with our six finalist’s submissions to make the appropriate changes to the logos within the next week.  The six logos will be revealed and voting will commence January 24th – 31st.

Further details will be provided on our GMHA website on January 24th.  The winning logo will be announced at GMHA Day on April 7th.  

On behalf of the GMHA, I would like to thank all the logo entry participants and our rebranding committee for all their hard work and efforts.
