Upon announcing the contest in late March, Chinooks fans submitted over 330 name ideas. The field was then narrowed down by taking the top three submissions: King, Gill, and Sammy. There was no runaway winner in the fan vote that followed. After over 800 votes, "Gill" was determined to be the winner by a seven vote margin!
Congratulations to Keagan McCarthy… the winner of our mascot naming contest. The McCarthy family will enjoy 4 tickets to a 2012 Chinooks game and a Go Riteway limo ride with Gill.
Gill and the Lakeshore Chinooks would like to thank all the fans who participated in this contest and hope to see you at Kapco Park on June 4th for the Chinooks’ inaugural Opening Day.
