Bulldogs fan appreciation weekend

Bulldogs officials want to keep the team's momentum going into the BCHL playoffs with fan appreciation events this weekend.

This weekend is all about the fans, as far as the Alberni Valley Bulldogs’ organization is concerned.

The Bulldogs are coming off a great weekend that first saw the team sinking the Clippers in Nanaimo 7-1 last Friday only to follow-up with a 4-4 tie at home against the nationally-ranked Surrey Eagles. That game is being described by many as the most exciting game in all of the Canadian Junior Hockey League this season.

“The Bulldogs encourage fans to come out this weekend, take part in the great Fan Appreciation Weekend activities, and keep the momentum rolling into playoffs,” assistant coach Adam Hayduk said in a press release.

Saturday, March 2 is Jersey Night when Salmon Arm comes to town (puck drops at 7 p.m.). Fans are encouraged to wear a jersey of their favourite team from any sport. All fans that walk through the front door wearing a jersey will be given a ballot for a chance to win one of many great prizes provided by Jal Designs, including a game- worn Colin Guiguet jersey from his first season as a Bulldog.

Saturday’s game day sponsor, the Alberni Auto Group, is also running the conclusion of this season’s Shoot to Win Contest. Three lucky fans will shoot for a chance to win a 2013 Toyota Rav 4.

Sunday, March 3, a 2 p.m. matinee game against Nanaimo Clippers, features the Post-Game Fan Party. Sunday’s game ticket gives you admission to the post game hotdog barbecue and a free skate with the Bulldogs players. Free skate rentals will be available and one lucky fan will win a 2013-14 season ticket.

Also, starting on Saturday, March 2, a select number of game worn jerseys, equipment, and game goal pucks will be made available for sale at the souvenir table.

While at the games this weekend, it will be the fans’ last chance to vote for their favourite Bulldog in the Port Authority Fan Choice Award.
