The Chestermere Regional Community Association (CRCA) with the support of the City of Chestermere, has applied to compete in Kraft Hockeyville 2020. The winners of this nation-wide contest receive $250,000 towards arena upgrades and the opportunity to host an NHL game in their community.
The City of Chestermere thrives on the ice, and the Rec Centre is the heart of our community. Earlier this year, we were all shocked and devastated when the building was nearly closed without warning due to structural issues discovered in our Red Arena roof. Luckily, with some cooperation and planning the closure was avoided, but still left us with a massive fix and a possible looming closure if not repaired. The Kraft Hockeyville contest is an extraordinary chance to win the cost of the repairs, which we otherwise cannot afford as a not-for-profit organization.
We ask you to lend your support and help us succeed by:
- Attending our Kraft Hockeyville Community Rally before the Chestermere Laker’s Midget hockey game on Friday, January 31, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. at the Chestermere Rec Centre. We invite everyone to show the country how we embody the spirit of hockey by wearing your jerseys, making signs and showing up to lend your support before the puck drop. Then, stay and support your local hockey team! At the Rally we plan to film a promotional video we’ll submit to Kraft Hockeyville as part of our campaign.
- Here’s the most important part. Every contestant receives points based upon their community participation! The more we rally, the more points we accumulate, the greater the likelihood of our success. Please take a few minutes to boost the Rec Centre’s points BEFORE February 9.
The CRCA believes the City of Chestermere is a worthy recipient; we live and breathe hockey and we’re ready to do what it takes to be crowned Kraft Hockeyville. We are Chestermere hockey.
