HYTEC To Sponsor Free Tickets

February 20, 2017

by Vernon Vipers

The final weekend of the BCHL regular season is upon us and the Vernon Vipers have some exciting news regarding the playoffs.

Vernon is scheduled to begin playoff action on Friday March 17 and Saturday March 18 at Kal Tire Place. The Vipers will have to wait until the conclusion of round one to find out who their opponent will be as the Snakes have secured a first round playoff bye. Due to a scheduling conflict at Kal Tire Place both the Friday and Saturday games will be 7pm starts.

Tickets for the playoffs will go on sale at the Viper Office beginning on Monday February 27th at 10am. Season ticket holders will have until 12 noon on game day to pick up their seats or they will be released for general sale. Adult tickets for round two will be $16.00 while seniors will be $14.00.

The Vernon Vipers are very pleased to announce that all Children and Students tickets in Round two will be FREE. Hytec, 1075 Kiss FM and The Vernon Morning Star are pleased to make this possible. There is no purchase necessary however each child or student will require a game ticket to be admitted.

Hytec a Kohler Company is very pleased to offer this opportunity to local youth and families in the North Okanagan, Michael Sanfilippo is the Business Manager for Hytec, “Hytec and Kohler are thrilled to continue on with our partnership with the Vernon Vipers in finding ways to give back to the community. We saw this as an excellent opportunity to partner with Kiss FM and the Vernon Morning Star to continue to make an impact and get the kids out to see some great playoff hockey. Go Vipers”.

Hytec is a full line manufacturer of gelcoat and acrylic bathtubs and showers as well as many other items with their head office being located in Armstrong.

The Vipers would like to thank Hytec, The Vernon Morning Star and 1075 Kiss FM for this great initiative to open the playoffs for the Snakes. Now let’s fill the building!!

This is great news! Thank you to all who are involved with the free tickets! The Vipers attendance has dropped over the past seven years. Its pretty sad the Vipers are getting below 2000 fans a night these days. It would be great if the Vipers could get their attendance up to around the 2500 mark per game, makes for a better atmosphere and I'm sure the Vipers enjoy playing in front of larger crowds. I still think the Vipers could do more with marketing, advertising and getting their brand-hockey team more out there, rather then just relying on hockey fans to show up at the rink. Lets try building-attracting new fans, to try and build their fan base up. A great example is look at what the City of Penticton and the Vees have accomplished with their fan base over the past five years or so. The Vees have been averaging around the 3000 mark this season and this past weekend saw close to 10,500 people show up for their three game home stand over last weekend. Look at the size of Penticton compared to Vernon. This is pretty incredible what the City of Penticton and the Vees have done. Wake up Vernon! Get out and support your Vipers!
