The Alberni Valley Bulldogs announced Saturday that Tuesday’s scheduled BCHL game against the Prince George Spruce Kings has been moved to Oceanside Place in Parksville BC due to on-going ice issues at the Port Alberni Multiplex.
“We find ourselves in the same position we did with the Trail Smoke Eaters. We need to get this game in so we don’t have to force Prince George to return to the Island for a single game in the middle of winter when travel conditions are much less favourable for the Spruce Kings.” said Bulldogs president David Michaud.
“While our frustrations are growing daily with Technical Safety BC and they’re unwillingness to approve the repairs and getting the Multiplex back up and running, we’re appreciative of the work the City of Port Alberni officials and the team at Accent Refrigeration are putting in trying to rectify this scenario for all user groups. It’s unfortunate situation for all of us to be in and we’re anxious for life to get back to normal as soon as possible.”
The same policy for ticketing will apply to Tuesday’s game as Campbell River. Fans holding a paid ticket for the game can simply swap the ticket at the Bulldogs office on Monday, or at the gate in Parksville. Tickets holders who are unable to attend can swap Tuesday’s ticket for a voucher good for any other 2019-2020 regular season game.
Michaud finished by saying “I’d like to thank our fans and our sponsors for their support, and we’re especially thankful to the communities of Parksville and Campbell River for being so accommodating and welcoming of our hockey club.
