Free admission to a junior hockey team’s home opener is unheard of. Until now.

The Sicamous Eagles will open the doors wide on Friday, Sept. 16, when they meet last season’s Keystone Cup champions, the 100 Mile House Wranglers.

“The goal is for a standing-room-only crowd to bring in a new season for our boys,” says Eagles’ club president Lorraine March. “We also want our community to be excited about our junior hockey team, to see that we have a quality show on par with other junior teams.”

There’s lots of activities and events going on throughout the game, said March.

“We have a brand new souvenir program with plenty of draws to enter, including two sets of tickets to a Vancouver Canucks/Montreal Canadians game in March that will be drawn at the end of regular season.”

As well, there’s an all-new line of Eagles’ merchandise, a chance to win the 50/50 draw, a shoot-to-win, and new menu items in the concession.

“Always popular is our beverage room. The entire building is a fun place to be, especially during an Eagles’ hockey game.

“We invite the community to take advantage of our special home opener promotion,” said March. “Come out and catch some junior hockey spirit!”
