HTCAA – Hamilton Tiger-Cat Alumni Association
Launches new web site

 

The Hamilton Tiger-Cat Alumni Association is proud to announce they are launching their new web site at www.htcaa.ca. The site, originally discussed as an on-line Association information resource for Alumni Members evolved through design to be a destination of “all things Ti-Cat’.

The site includes a chronological Team History and Rosters as well as lists of past Inductees, Honourees and Award Winners. Fans will enjoy the collection of Tiger-Cat player cards, programs and collectibles. The site also features a photo gallery of pictures from The Spectator archives and “Then & Now” profiles completed by Tiger-Cat Alumni.

HTCAA President Dave Lane feels this is a great opportunity to promote the Associations charitable events and activities in the community and to recognize both our Alumni and the rich history of football in Hamilton. “We are very proud of the volunteer work our Alumni do in the community from the Annual Food Drive to the Wall of Honour Dinner and other events and we hope the web site will go a long way in making the community aware of and to support our charitable events.”

Of special interest to fans will be an on-line trivia contest with a chance to win passes to mingle with former players on game day in their Alumni Lounge. There will also an opportunity for them to post their comments and submit their photos on-line.

Alumni member Ed Valtenbergs who is responsible for the creation and content of the site says “I really wanted to make it more than just an Alumni site, I wanted to make it fun and for the fans. It is ever evolving with more content and photos, so there is always a reason to come back to see what is new’.

A HTCAA group has also been created on Facebook for both fans and Alumni. It will allow fans to participate in discussion groups about Tiger-Cat history and their favourite memories. Fans can also submit photos of themselves at Tiger-Cat games, in their best Ti-Cat gear or alongside their favourite Alumni.

Canadian Football League Alumni Association – CFLAA Executive Director and Tiger-Cat Alumnus Leo Ezerins thinks the site is fantastic. “To be honest, it is the best one I have seen, it has been taken to the next level by combining the interests of the Alumni Association with the history of the Club. I am sure it is something our Alumni and fans can be very proud of. We will look at it as a template in possibly creating new sites for our other Alumni organizations.”
