From Saturday, February 28th at 9pm PST, through Wednesday March 4th at 9pm PST, the Kraft Hockeyville voting process re-opens, this time with just five choices to determine the ultimate winner:
Terrace, British Columbia
Harbour Grace, Newfoundland
Thetford Mines, Quebec
My loyalties are no secret. Terrace is my hometown. I have seen firsthand the amazing effect Kraft Hockeyville has had on our community. I suspect all of the five final communities will agree that regardless of who wins the final vote, we are all winners already.
But I figure we've already come this far, why don't we go out and win this thing already!
Because I find it hard to believe Terrace has the population base to pull this thing out, I am once again soliciting out of town support.
What I want each and every of my readers to do is to go to the Kraft Hockeyville 2009 website, review each of the five campaigns, and then vote. Vote as many times as you wish, for whoever you wish.
If you do not have any particular affiliation to any of the other communities, I will encourage you to vote for my hometown, Terrace, BC as Hockeyville 2009!
Last go-around I offered Kraft hockey cards from the 1980s in a random drawing. Well we all need to upgrade our efforts if we are going to win, so I am going to upgrade the prizes.
I want you to email me your name and hometown, and how many times you voted for Terrace as Hockeyville. If you vote a minimum of 200 times, I will put you in the drawing for our randomly drawn grand prize - an authentic Team Canada hockey jersey!
If you voted a minimum of 100 times, I will put you in the drawing for one of six autographed copies of my own books. There will be three copies of The World Cup Of Hockey and three copies of Legends Of Team Canada up for grabs!
So come back next weekend, vote early and vote often, and get your name in for a chance to win some pretty cool prizes.
TERRACE, BC is HOCKEYVILLE!!
