Introduced prior to the start of the 2011/12 season, "Dash" is the OFFICIAL mascot of the Soo Greyhounds.
The name "DASH" derived from a team initated "Name the Mascot" contest that spanned three weeks during the month of May 2011. With 145 original submissions, the team Business Operations staff narrowed that list down to eight names which were later posted as part of a poll here on SooGreyhounds.com.
After a week of voting, the fans choice was "Dash".
"Dash" not only provides an element of entertainment at all Soo Greyhounds home games but is also very active at many of the team's charitable events and public appearances they take part in.
Watch for "Dash" in, and around, Sault Ste. Marie throughout the upcoming season.
If your business, or non-charitable foundation would be interested in having "Dash" at your upcoming event be sure to complete the public appearance request form which is located under the COMMUNITY tab of our website.
