Rossland Arena Society waits on Kraft Hockeyville 2021 judging
The Rossland Arena Society continues to play the waiting game as judges make the final tally to see which city proceed to the next round of the Kraft Hockeyville 2021 contest.
Rossland Arena Society president Ona Stanton said the four finalists in the Kraft Hockeyville 2021 contest will be announced March 20th.
“A HUGE thanks to everyone who supported the campaign, helped us get the word out and all who shared their stories, photos and memories through the Kraft Hockeyville Rossland Rally page,” Stanton said.
Stanton suggests Rosslanders head to the Rossland link at Kraft Hockeyville to view all of the fantastic content.
“While we did not get as many rally points as some other communities, our powerful stories might just be enough to carry us to the top,” Stanton explained.
“Being selected as a finalist would be a huge achievement and opportunity for the entire area,” Stanton added.
The Kraft Hockeyville 2021 winner will be the community with the most votes once the final voting phase ends — nationwide voting will be open from 6 a.m. on April 9 and close at 2 p.m. on April 10.
“We’d like to thank the community, businesses, community groups, City of Rossland and Tourism Rossland, and supporters throughout the Greater Trail area and beyond,” Stanton said. “As always we also send a big shout out to our amazing and hard-working volunteers who make these initiatives possible.”
The Rossland Arena Society was formed in 2018 by a group of ice users and stakeholders.
The purpose of the Society is to deliver community benefits by improving the viability of the Rossland Arena through advocacy, programming, increased usage, fundraising, and facility management as required.
The Rossland Arena Society is operated by an elected Board of Directors and with an active membership base, open to anyone interested in, or users of the Rossland Arena.
