MEDICINE HAT, AB — Calvin Foster's 10 years as president for the Medicine Hat Travelodge Cubs can be summed up in three words.

Treasured. Thankful. Memorable.

Foster, along with former general manager Bill Berard stepped down from the organization this week, while Dave Kowalchuk has taken over as the Junior B team's president.

Kowalchuk, who was hired on this spring as Director of Player Development, is currently in the process of hiring a new GM ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Joining the team in 2008, Foster says he's very pleased with the progress the club has made over the last number of years. His decision to leave is based on personal reasons and the desire to instill new blood and a fresh look for the Cubs.

He says it'll be very strange to watch the team as a spectator, rather than a member of the organization who often could be found on the bench. 

But the hardest part about leaving is knowing the Cubs potential for the years to come.

Mitch Bach of CHAT Sports caught up with Foster to learn more about his decision to step down as president, where his relationship currently stands with the organization, and what he'll miss the most about working for the Blue and Silver.
