Prince George Cougars’ Community Contest

Prince George Cougars’ Community Contest includes $2,500 donation, on-ice clinic, autograph sessions, and Q&A.

The Prince George Cougars have created an amazing and generous contest that is open to the five communities of Vanderhoof, Quesnel, Mackenzie, Fraser Lake and Fort St. James.

To sum up the contest, every community that purchases more than 75 tickets to the Cougars’ hockey game on February 19 in Prince George will win a minimum of a $500 donation to their Minor Hockey Association.

The Grand Prize includes a $2500 donation to the community’s Minor Hockey Association, the entire Cougars team will visit your community and host an on-ice clinic, autograph and Q&A sessions and more! Simply, the community that buys the most tickets wins the grand prize! Head over to the Cougars’ website to learn more details.

If you can please share this news and rally your community together it would be really amazing to have so many out of town guests cheer on the Cougars and the prospect of a $2500 donation and a hockey clinic led by the Cougars is thrilling!

We truly appreciate the community spirit that the Prince George Cougars have, and we are also delighted that they want to support Minor Hockey Associations in northern British Columbian towns. The Cougars asked for Tourism Prince George’s help to promote this contest and now we’re reaching out to you.

We have also reached out to local hotels and five hotels have come forward to offer special rates for this contest (we want to make sure everyone can drive home safely during daylight hours on Saturday).  The Prestige Treasure Cove, Carmel Inn, Bon Voyage Hotel, Canada’s Best Value Inn and Prince Motel have all provided discounts.  Details are also on the Cougars’ website.

We hope to create a little friendly competition between the five communities, stay tuned to our Facebook page where we will be sharing more information.

If you share this on your social media channels, please tag us in your posts (and the Cougars and accommodations listed above, if you’d like) and we’ll tag you when we post -I’d love to see some northern camaraderie develop for this event and any future events.

Thank-you so much, and I hope to see you at the CN Centre February 19!
