In 1981, Lynn formed & managed the Yellowknife Raven’s all-star team with Joe Tkachuk & Ray Gagnon. Lynn still organizes and manages the Yellowknife Raven’s to this day (25 years & counting). Lynn has been to 18 Nationals, 3 World cups and 4 Westerns (as of this writing) with the YK Ravens.
In 1982, Lynn, with the assistance of Bonnie Johansen and Carol Harvie set the groundwork for what is now the Yellowknife Women’s league. The women’s league still exists to this day due to the work set out by Lynn.
Lynn Fowler was the Chairperson for the 1988 Canadian National Broomball Championships held in Yellowknife, NWT. At the time, Lynn was president of the NWT Broomball Association. Lynn has held this position for a period of 7 years in total, and remains on the executive as a consultant. He has been a part of the NWT Broomball executive for over 25 years.
In 1990, Lynn Fowler and Keith Houghton established the Yellowknife Junior broomball association. The junior program has met with success over the past 15 years, having placed 4th in Cornerbrook in 1993, won the gold medal on the B-Side in 1994 in Regina. He has attended 6 junior national championships.
Lynn played in the Yellowknife men’s league for 21 years and had been an administrator for the sport of broomball in the NWT since 1979. His 26 years of experience, dedication to his favorite sport, endless contribution and enthusiasm to broomball in the Northwest Territories is almost unheard of in this day and age. Without Lynn, who knows where the sport of broomball would be in the NWT.
Lynn Fowler is known in the Northwest Territories as “Mr. Broomball” which is a title he wears with pride! I am seeking to nominate Lynn for his never ending support of broomball in the NWT. He is, by far, an example for which we could all learn greatly from.
