Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada Big Save Contestby
Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada returns February 12, 2011 as the hockey nation sets up in Whitehorse. The Vancouver Giants and Kamloops Blazers will face-off live while the CBC hosts an all-Canadian NHL triple header.
In order to engage families, teams, players, and fans from coast to coast, Scotiabank is also presenting the Big Save Contest where they will send one financially-conscious community hockey team to Whitehorse to enjoy Hockey Day festivities.
Teams (ages 7-16) can enter online by stating how much they team would like to save, and what they are saving for. This can be anything from equipment to ice time. The winning team will be chosen to fly to Whitehorse for Canada’s ultimate hockey celebration February 12, 2011.
The deadline to enter is November 30th so if you know of a local team that has been saving up and fundraising, encourage them to enter today. Savings tips are also available for online reference.
To promote the Big Save, Scotiabank has offered up five prize packs to my readers.
These Scotia Hockey Club family gift packages (above) include jerseys, hats, pucks and more. If you would like to win one of these five prize packs, here’s how to enter:
I will draw five winners at random from all entries next Friday, November 19th. For more information about Scotiabank’s hockey and community initiatives you can follow them on Twitter or Facebook.
Update The winners are Gingerymommy, Vincent Chan, Stewart Rogers, @dolphin3303, @MitchellGibb
