Hockey fans and history buffs alike will be sure to swarm to the Blairmore Scotiabank on Saturday December 4, when the Stanley Cup will be on display throughout the morning and afternoon.
The Cup will be on display from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a Guard of Honour ceremony to be held at 9:15, where members of the Crowsnest RCMP and an Honour Guard comprised of 14 local minor hockey players will escort the cup into the branch.
The players will then enjoy a private viewing session with the Cup, until 9:45, when contest winners will have a 15 minute private viewing session.
At 10:00, the cup will be available to all members of the public, and the first 500 people to show up that morning will have their photo taken with the cup for free.
The Cup is coming to Blairmore as part of the Scotiabank Celebration of Hockey tour, which has been in operation for the last three years.
Every year, Scotiabank, the official bank of the NHL, chooses 15 branches throughout the country where the Cup has never visited, based on sponsorship of local minor hockey teams.
Through this sponsorship, the team is placed into a national draw for various prizes which include Girls HockeyFest; “Get Geared Up” by Pro Hockey Life, where the entire team can be outfitted by Pro Hockey Life equipment;
Scotiabank Hockey Tonight Kids, a segment which runs prior to CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada; and the opportunity to host the Cup, which the Thunder won.
This is also the third year that Scotiabank has been donating to Crowsnest minor hockey through its Community Sponsorship Program.
“It is important because hockey programs enrich the communities where Canadians live and work,” said Branch Manager Claudette Daigle.
“Scotiabank supports the passion and pride Canadians feel for hockey, and believes it is fundamental to help young people learn about team work, camaraderie, and the spirit of competition.”
She says it is exciting for the Crowsnest Pass to be hosting the Cup this year, because it allows fans and players to become engaged in new a ways, and to connect with the game on a more personal level.
To have your picture taken with the Cup for free, be one of the first 500 people to show up on Saturday, December 4, and provide your email address so the photographer can email you your picture.
