Let’s Kick It Off!

Would you like to celebrate Vernon’s selection as the host of the 2014 RBC Cup? Would you like to learn more about ticket packages and volunteer opportunities?

If so, come to the Kickoff Rally on June 16. The event, which will start at 12 noon, will be hosted by the Sunshine Festival.

Exactly 30 minutes has been allocated on the Main Stage at the east end of 30th Avenue. “We appreciate being added to the Festival at short notice,” says organizer Don Klepp. “We had originally planned to hold the rally at City Hall on June 2, but then we learned about the agreements that must be in place before an official announcement can be made, so we changed the date.”

The rally will be opened by Beamer Wigley’s performance of the “Hockey Tonight” song that he wrote for the 2014 RBC Cup.

Hockey Canada will send its spokesman to make an official announcement. A number of Vernon Laker and Viper players will be on hand to join with fans and minor hockey players to celebrate.

The event will also unveil a limited edition RBC Cup T-shirt. Several fans will receive a free shirt courtesy of the T-shirt cannon and other shirts will be on sale. If purchasers wish to have their T-shirts autographed, Laker and Viper players will be on hand.”

Following the rally, fans will be able to sign up for ticket packages and volunteer opportunities.

After the Kickoff Rally on June 16, come to Boston Pizza if in you want to celebrate and mingle with RBC Cup supporters.

The event will get under way at about 2 pm. If it’s a nice day, we’ll be out on the patio. If it’s dreary, Sean Matile will reserve the regular section that‘s used for Viper post game shows.

KISS FM will be on hand to celebrate with us and get our reactions.

Boston Pizza will feature $3.50 pints of Canadian, 10% of all food items for people who purchase an RBC Cup ticket, and large pizzas for the price of a medium pizza.

BP will provide gift cards for giveaways.

Also, we will have signup tables for tournament ticket package purchases and for volunteers.

Members of the Host Organizing Committee will be on hand to answer questions and talk about what happens next.
