West Kelowna Bantam Tier 3 road to the Provincials!!!
To all members of West Kelowna Minor Hockey:
This year the West Kelowna Bantam Tier 3 team has the privilege of hosting the BC Provincials in March. Though it is an honour to host such an event it is a costly one to say the least! Our team has to raise almost $30,000.00 to be able to do this. We have been fund-raising all year and are getting ready for our main fundraiser event. We are hosting a Canada vs U.S.A. series. It is 3 games with the final one being played in Prospera Place. There is over 500 players registered with WK Minor hockey, we thought that this event would be a great year end get together for all our minor hockey teams! Our goal is to sell out memorial arena with a very loud and colourful crowd! The teams will be wearing national team colour's..... national anthems will be sang.....the stage is set for an unforgettable event!!! We are really counting on the support from all of our great West Kelowna Minor Hockey teams as well as the community. Tickets are only $10.00 for entry to all 3 games. See the attachment for further details. So please come out and fill the stands and cheer us on! We thank you in advance for supporting the Bantam Tier 3 boy's!!!

2014 Winter Classic!!!
West Kelowna's very own Jeff Fletcher, Arena Manager at Royal Lepage Place and Jim Lind Arena, started doing outdoor games at the original one in Edmonton in 2003 and has been fortunate to work on many since, as well as the Olympics in Vancouver.
For this event he was there from Dec. 15th to Jan. 5th with a three day trip home for Christmas to be with his family. There were 14 people working on the Ice Crew in Ann Arbor. His role was to supervise the setup of everything involved with the field of play. That includes the Refrigeration Plant (which is in a tractor trailer), the piping from the truck to the ice sheet and the building of the rink itself (ice floor, boards and glass).
Once the rink is built the Ice Crew builds the ice which includes painting the white surface and applying the logos. They then maintain the ice for the practices and the game. During the process on game day...they shoveled snow off the rink from 5:30 am nonstop until game time and then every four minutes during the game due to a heavy snow storm. The day after the game, the process starts in reverse, they pound all of the ice off the surface by hand to protect the aluminum ice floor underneath from breaking and then a machine pushes it all off the rink. Once the ice is cleared, the equipment is all removed the same way it was installed and packed into the tractor trailers for delivery to the next events in New York City and Los Angeles.
The NHL has two complete setups for these events due to the extra games being held this year in NY, Los Angeles, Chicago and Vancouver.
Great job Jeff!
