Aug 7,2014(ISN) – Salmon Arm, BC – The Salmon Arm Silverbacks Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club invites the
community of Salmon Arm to a Silverbacks 3rd Annual Season Kickoff at City Hall on
Thursday, August 21 from 5-7 pm.
Our invitation extends out to the community of
Salmon Arm as well as our fans, army of volunteers, corporate sponsors, billet
families and anyone thinking of being involved with our team this year.
The Silverbacks 3rd Annual Season Kickoff is an opportunity to gather for a family
bbq (by donation), enjoy a meet and greet with our players and staff, and will be
followed by a town hall style meeting.
Our beloved team mascot Kong will be handing out team swag and on hand for photo ops
with the kids. As well, players will be available for autographs and fans will be
given the opportunity to tour the team bus, buy season tickets, and sign up to join
the Silverbacks army of volunteers.
We will also have information on hand for families considering billeting a player
this year. Billet families are still needed!
We’re very excited to have the Apple Auto Glass dunk tank that will host our very
own Mayor Nancy Cooper, the Silverbacks GM Troy Mick, Head Coach Brandon West and
others who will brave the tank to raise money for the Silverbacks Scholarship Fund.
Donate and dunk!
“We are in for a very exciting year. We’ve stepped up our game on and off the ice
with a great team of exceptional players, skilled staff and our game day show
factor. This is the community’s opportunity to embrace the spirit of our new slogan
– Our Team. Our Town. Our Game. After the outdoor family bbq and meet and greet,
we’ll head inside for a town hall style meeting to give attendees an opportunity to
be a part of the unveiling of some exciting game day news, meet the new staff and
participate in a question and answer time.”
