FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The NEBC Predators’ 50/50 draw is tonight, and there are still some tickets available to try and win the grand prize while supporting female hockey in the Peace.

The Predators have been out and about in the community selling tickets, but Predators’ president Angela Ayre says there are close to 200 tickets that still need to be sold before tonight’s draw.

“We have about 195 tickets left to sell before the draw tonight. We’ve got practise happening tonight in Taylor, so the draw will be there,” said Ayre, who added that the team can arrange for electronic ticket sales.

“We can do everything electronically and do E-transfers and send pictures of the tickets to folks.”

The cutoff is at 6 p.m. tonight. Ayre says the best way to get your tickets is to reach out on the NEBC Predators Facebook page.

If all the tickets are sold, the grand prize will be $10,000.

The Predators’ side of the funds will go towards the provincial tournament at the end of the season and more development ice time.

“Our provincial tournament that everyone’s heading to at the end of the season, and the U13s are doing development ice, similar to the program in Prince George. That’ll be the focus for the U13s, and for the U15 and U18 teams, the last hurrah at the end of the season is provincial championships. That will be the big expense.”

Hockey has slowed down a bit in December for the Predators, but Ayre is taking a much needed break before a crazy January and February schedule.

“December’s been quiet. We’ve had lots of practise time which has been greatly implemented. Recently, the girls have been on the ice in the mornings a lot, which is great. January and February are really busy for us. I think most teams are on the road four out of six weekends.”
