Looking to increase their fan base, the Sicamous Eagles Junior Hockey Club is moving forward with a number of initiatives. The first of these was free admission for the season’s first home game.

“Our free admission promotion for the season home opener was very successful,” says club president Lorraine March. “We more than doubled the usual attendance and those encouraging numbers continued into last Wednesday’s game.

“And now we move into our second promotion with our 5 Buck Fridays.”

On the first Friday of the month home game, tickets are $5, starting with the Oct. 7 match-up with the North Okanagan Knights.

“As always, there’s lots of admission and program draws to be won, and several prizes to enter from our souvenir program, plus a new line of merchandise, the beverage room, and great food from the concession,” adds March. “Game night is always a fun time.”
