Year 1 Of Mosaic Place A Success

The results are in and Moose Jaw’s shiny, new entertainment & athletic facilities were a huge success in their inaugural year of operation. Downtown Facility and Soccer/Field-House Inc (DFFH), a Saskatchewan non-profit corporation responsible for the operation of Moose Jaw’s Mosaic Place & FieldHouse, announced the 2011 results at its 2012 Annual General Meeting held Tuesday evening at Mosaic Place.

Facilities General Manager Scott Clark presented audited year-end statements showing a year-end surplus of $837,300 including a cash position of $575,667. The statements showed the facilities to better revenue projections by $396,228 while completing the year $441,000 under projected expense.
“It’s certainly been a wonderful first year for Moose Jaw’s new facilities. Attendance, corporate sponsorship, catering, track revenues. You name it, expectations were exceeded. Moose Javians are certainly enjoying and are extremely proud of the new facilities and as a management team we’re honored to have the responsibility of successfully providing a range of programs and events that will keep these venues humming”, commented Clark.

Commenting on the success of the facilities, DFFH Chairman Kurt Saladana added, ”Mosaic Place and FieldHouse useage has exceeded the most optimistic of the Operating Board members’ predictions. They have redefined the concept of flexibility for Moose Jaw; their use will only continue to grow as demonstrated by the creativity already displayed by our citizens.”
In reviewing the 2011 surplus the operating Board approved a motion recommending to Moose Jaw city council that the 2011 surplus be allocated as follows;
· $275,000 to accumulated surplus fund
· $275,000 to capital reserve fund
· $287,300 to the city of Moose Jaw

2012 is already shaping up to be another banner year what with the Warriors post season success, big name concerts such as Paul Brandt and John Mellencamp, next fall’s Capital One Canada Cup and the Roughriders FieldHouse training camp sessions. The catering and convention also continue to grow with large scale events such as the SIAST Business & Industry gala, National Early Years Conference - Imagine Your Future and Chamber of Commerce Focus on Trade events inhabiting the curling surface’s off-season.

Congrats on new stadium MJ. I drove there to watch a couple games with two buddies this year and was impressed.

And to think there were people that actually thought this was a bad idea.

That facility has and will improve Moose Jaw tenfold.
