Pack the Plex for HockeyVille

Blog Mar 12 Broncos

Started the morning by talking Ball Hockey with Tanya Mitchell (regarding the upcoming 4th Annual Missions Cup Tournament March 28th & 29th)

And from there switched our focus back to the Swift Current Broncos (kicking off an important week of hockey tonight at home against the Saskatoon Blades)... Kim won four free tickets and 20 Bronco Bucks by knowing that Cody Eakin was the last Bronco before Black this year to record 91 points in a year

If you haven't heard about Swift Current competing for the 2014 Kraft Hockey Ville title you may want to check with a realtor about moving out from under that rock... The voting portion of the second round is in the books but Kraft is also looking for their winning city to show community spirit through the game of hockey.  And it just so happens our city has a chance to do just that tonight with the Blades in town.  The city and Hockeyville committee asking anyone and everyone who can and is willing to show up tonight in a jersey of their choice (I'm thinking with the recent weather a Riders jersey would be acceptable) and get loud as the committee will be sending a video of our cities pride to the good folks of Kraft.  You can still get early bird tickets for that game at the Stable (up until 3 PM)... And it's an important game for the Broncos tonight as well so there really is no excuse not to have a playoff atmosphere at the rink in just a few hours time

Giveaways On The Eagle

This morning Terry won tickets to see ZZ Top Friday night in Moose Jaw

Another set of tickets to that show up for grabs tomorrow morning, when you hear back to back ZZ Top be the first to call in at 306-773-0941... Also tomorrow we have Bronco tickets and Bronco Bucks up for grabs, Bronco Trivia going down at 7:20

And on a completly unrelated note, Alex Trebek may be the greatest Canadian of all time (sorry Wayne)... I've never been able to figure out how he can be so serious on Jeoprady and then flip the switch and be so funny in a cameo (note how he is willing to make fun of himself... American living for all these years has not been able to get rid of that Canadian sense of humour)


Swift Current is Hockey Ville

Swift Current is making a strong push to become Kraft Hockeyville 2014... But we need the whole city to make this a reality.  Our Mayor stopped by this morning to ask for your help and explain what exactly winning this honour will mean for the city

Head to to vote online or vote by phone (toll free): 1-866-533-8066

Seeing some nicer weather as of late in Swift Current as well which means that spring is in the air and Spring/Summer registration as well... Nicole and Danielle were on the show this morning with more details

Halfway To The Weekend

Nancy & Ken were in this morning from the S.C. Little Theatre discussing their ticket drive tomorrow at the Swift Current Mall from 6-7 PM

Again came up empty when looking for a winner of the Innovation Credit Union iSeat, which means next Thursday $180 will be up for grabs for one listener who is at the March 12th home game against the Saskatoon Blades(one of only two home games left this year)

Rena, however did manage to win this morning, and was pretty excited to be heading up to Moose Jaw to check out Chicago Friday night

And making waves on the internet this morning, release date scheduled for December(just in time for Christmas nudge nudge wink wink)

The Return Of The Mayor

The Mayor joined us again today after another City Council meeting to talk about their 3 year strategy for growth, potholes, and HockeyVille 2014
