Scotty began volunteering for the Clarenville Jr Caribous in the very early 80’s and continued his efforts till the team folded in 1989. He gave freely of his services for the Caribous brief stint in the old Avalon West league in 2000, and once again joined the team in 2006 when they entered the West Coast Sr Hockey League. During all this time Scotty’s duties with the Caribous have varied but one thing that has not is his undying allegiance to the organization. Win lose or draw, Scotty is always behind the team. For the past 9 years Scotty has single handedly organized the Caribous spring slow pitch tournament, a very successful fund raiser. An animated character who speaks his mind, you never have to wonder what he is thinking when it comes to the Caribous! Scotty bleeds the Caribous colors and is most certainly the only person to have the Caribous logo tattooed on his arm. Another example of Scotty’s dedication to the Caribous was seen when he spent the entire game at the hospital with injured Caribous player Stuart MacRae. To find a person who is willing to give so much of his time and energy to an organization for such a long period of time is truly a rare find, and the Caribous are so very fortunate to have him.
