Victoria, BC – The Victoria Royals and Vancouver Giants meet in the fourth installment of their 10 game season series this Friday, November 4th and Saturday, November 5th. Puck drop for both games is set for 7:05 p.m. at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. To this point, the home team has held the advantage in each meeting between the B.C. Division teams and with four points on the line this weekend, it promises to be another exciting chapter in the rivalry.

The action on the ice is only part of what fans attending the games can expect this weekend, with a Home Depot Thunderstick giveaway on Friday and Winter Driving Awareness Night set for Saturday.

Friday Night

The Victoria Royals ‘turn back the clock’ to the decade of hair, metal and acid wash with 80’s Night this Friday in the first of back-to-back games against the Vancouver Giants.

The first 1500 fans entering the building on Friday will receive a set of Thundersticks courtesy of Home Depot to cheer on the Royals against their B.C. Division rivals.

Anthem Hair Salon will be providing free mullet hair cuts to any participants willing to wear the style that inspired the phrase ‘business in the front and party in the back.’ Those who do volunteer to have their hair cut into the classic mullet style will be rewarded with an Anytime Ticket Voucher, valid for any of the remaining Royals’ home games this season.

Other promotions include a Home Depot ‘Leaf Blower Challenge’ to win a mini-fridge in between the first and second periods, as well as a Langford Lanes Pin to Win Bowling Challenge during the second intermission.

If all of that isn’t enough, fans will also see the return of ‘Fly-Away Fridays’, where they will have the opportunity to throw their paper airplane entry to win a return flight for two on Harbour Air to Vancouver, one night’s accommodation at the Coast Hotel in Vancouver, and two tickets to a Vancouver Canucks game courtesy of BCAA. Proceeds from the contest will benefit the Saanich Minor Hockey Association.

Saturday Night

Royals’ fans are invited to Winter Driving Awareness Night on Saturday, generously sponsored by Mainroad, ICBC, BCAA, Fountain Tire, Westcoast Tire, 103.1 Jack FM and the Ocean 98.5. Both stations are a part of Rogers Communications.

The first 800 fans in the building that night will receive ice scrapers courtesy of 103.1 Jack FM and the Ocean 98.5. Fans can also receive free safety tips courtesy of Mainroad.
