Alberni Bulldogs want to ‘Pack the Plex’

The Alberni Bulldogs want to commemorate its 10th season in Port Alberni by packing the stands to the rafters at their game on March 9.

It’s the Alberni Valley Bulldogs 10th season in the Valley and the team wants to commemorate the occasion  by ‘Filling the Plex’.

The event is scheduled to take place on Friday, March 9, when the Cowichan Valley Capitals return. The game starts at 7 p.m.

The event will also be used to acknowledge minor hockey coaches who give up their personal time to volunteer to mentor children.

“We really want to bring back the excitement of the Bulldog games as they were in the early years when the Multiplex was packed to the rafters with great fans,” said director of business operations Ron Paulson.

“We plan on lots of activities throughout the night and even some surprise mascots to help Bernie get the crowd loud and proud. “

Fans who have tickets but can’t make the game can still help the effort, Paulson said.

They can let the Bulldogs know so that their tickets can be distributed to minor hockey or to Valley schools.
