The Penticton Vees are holding a year-end awards / fan appreciation night this Thursday at the BC Hockey Hall of Fame at the SOEC. The event gets going at 4pm as that’s when the Fan Appreciation event gets going and wraps up at 5:30pm
During that time, the public, free of charge, is welcomed to stop by the rink and make their way up the the BC Hockey Hall of Fame to mingle with the Penticton Vees. Players and staff will be on hand for a meet and greet, answer your questions, take pictures and sign autographs.
At 5:30pm the awards ceremony part of the night gets going, as there will be a stage at the back of the BC Hockey Hall of Fame. The public is welcomed to stay and watch the Vees handout their year-end hardware. This is FREE TO THE PUBLIC; absolutely no charge. Again, come down anytime after 4pm to meet up with your favourite players and have the opportunity to say goodbye!
I understand there is some concern about the start time as this falls within working hours for some. I understand the frustration but there are some extenuating circumstances at play. One, the SOEC has been booked up for a major trade show this week, so our options are limited. Two, the players will be departing this weekend so the event has to be before Friday. It’s a time crunch and a double-edged sword, as if we started the event later, there would be a group that had issue with a late start time. I hope this doesn’t effect to too many fans and I hope to see a lot of you on Thursday afternoon.
