Who will get to see NHL game?

Dear Editor,

A big cheer for everyone who voted for Sylvan Lake to win the West and the possibility of a pre-season NHL game.

I know grandmothers, teachers, retired folks, hockey fans and many others who voted to put us over the top.

Now the question becomes WHO will get to see this NHL game?

Every single vote counted. No one vote was worth more than the other.

A lottery should be held where all can purchase a ticket … for say $5 and that the number of seats be drawn with one ticket per number purchased i.e.: 10,000 tickets printed – 500 tickets drawn and the balance of the funds go to the arena project along with the money from Kraft.

This would be a big push to upgrade the sports centre.

Any other ideas for a fair way to choose who will get to see the pre-season game? All comments are open.

Rene Jaspar,

Sylvan Lake
