Skate with the Canucks via @VanCanucks Sunlife Financial and @CanucksCorner

skate

How would you like to spend you first BC Family Day Holiday skating at Rogers Arena with members of your Vancouver Canucks?

On Monday, February 11, 2013, Sun Life Financial is sponsoring “Skate with the Canucks“, a chance for you to take the ice with current Canucks players and Canucks alumni. The Vancouver Canucks have generously offered readers of our blog two tickets to this event.

You can enter in three, very easy ways:

  • Leave a comment below and tell us which Canucks player you would most like to take to the ice with.
  • Tweet the following: “I entered for a chance to Skate with the Canucks via @CanucksCorner @VanCanucks & @BrighterLifeCA: http://ow.ly/huDGs #CCSkate”
  • Leave a comment on our Facebook page under the post about this contest.

If you do all three, you have three chances to win!

The deadline to enter is Friday, February 8, 2013 at 6:00 PM. We will randomly choose a winner from the total number of entries using Random.org

Important Information: The skate session starts at 6:00 PM on Monday, February 11. Skate and helmet rentals are not available so you will have to bring your own. You will also be required to sign a waiver before you step on the ice. At least one current member of your 2013 Vancouver Canucks will be on the ice during the event.

Good luck everyone!

Congrats to Samantha Law, her comment on the blog was selected as our random lucky winner that will get two spots to Skate with the Canucks at Rogers arena. Thanks to everyone that entered!


 

Home Opener Canucks tickets! And the winner is…

scrimmage

Last night I was among some invited guests of the Canucks social media team to watch the first of two season scrimmages. It was great to finally back in the rink again, as an estimated 8,000 Canucks fans showed up to watch the team prepare for the season opener on Saturday. The scrimmage itself certainly wasn’t the hockey we all expect to see starting Saturday, but it was great to see fellow bloggers and other social media members at last night’s event.

At the end of the night the Canucks graciously gave us two tickets to Saturday’s home opener and since I already had tickets, I decided to give them away in a contest on Facebook and twitter. We asked our Twitter followers and Facebook page members how long Canucks Corner has been on the internet, and we had a ton of entries as evidenced by the fact that @Canuckscorner was the top trend in Vancouver last night.

The answer is, that we have been online in one form or another since 1996, and we are entering our 17th season of following and covering Canucks hockey. Since the answer could be interpreted many ways, I accepted any answer from “Since 1996″ to “16 years” or “17 years”.

Through a random draw of all correct entries, we used the number generator from random.org and the winner of our contest is…

Brynn Prince (@brynnprince on Twitter)

Congratulations to Brynn, and thanks to all of you who entered. We hope you’ll continue to follow along as this season unfolds, and stay with us for another 17 years!

The Vancouver Canucks have offered us two tickets to give away to a luck reader and you don’t have to be a fast skater or a target sniper to win them.

All you have to do is RT this message for one entry:
