The Prince George Cougars have unveiled a new installation to the CN Centre concourse that they hope will help fans reminisce on the last quarter-century of Cats play.

In Section C of the arena the Cougars have erected a display that features their team photos from all 25 seasons and the team awards, which were added when the new ownership came in five years ago.

"We wanted to find a way to bring our audience and our fanbase back into that whole memory scene," said the team's Vice President Andy Beesley, "we thought this was the best way of doing it, by really just going hog-wild and doing the entire history of the team in one place."

In addition to the new display, the Cougars 25th season will include a commerative program counting down the Top 25 Cougars players of all time and a special Alumni Weekend expected to be put on in February.

The Cougars are currently 3-1 in preseason action and will play their final exhibiton game and first one at home this Saturday at 7 pm against the Kamloops Blazers. They begin the regular season on Saturday, September 21st in Victoria against the Royals.
