LUMBY - An emphasis has been placed on making sure Lumby residents get to see an NHL game their community won in a national competition.
Ticket details have been released for the NHL pre-season game between the Edmonton Oilers and the Los Angeles Kings. There will be two draws, one specifically for Lumby residents and one for other supporters, organizer Angie Clowry says in a media release.
People will have the chance to win tickets to the pre-season game, as well as a practice session between the teams set for Sunday, Oct. 2 at 9:30 a.m. The game itself will happen at 6 p.m. at Kal Tire Place in Vernon.
“Tickets will be distributed by way of a supervised public draw which will take place at Lumby and District Chamber of Commerce,” Clowry says. “The public is invited to come in person to submit a ballot for a chance to win two tickets to the game or practice.”
