WHL boss to meet with Rocket fans
Nov 2, 2013 / 8:10 am
A rare opportunity is being afforded to fans of the Kelowna Rockets.
Season ticket holders will have the chance to participate in a question and answer period with Western Hockey League Commissioner Ron Robison and Bruce Hamilton, the Kelowna Rockets President/GM and WHL Chairman of the Board.
The Q and A will take place Thursday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at Manhattan Point Restaurant.
Seating will be open to the first 100 season ticket holders to RSVP.
It's the first time Robison will visit Kelowna for an open forum with Rockets fans - an opportunity which stemmed from a discussion the WHL Commissioner had with a Rockets' season ticket holder following last year's playoffs.
During the evening, Robison and Hamilton will touch on a wide variety of topics, from player and officiating development, scheduling and the future direction of the WHL.
"We're very excited to be able to bring the WHL Commissioner to Kelowna," says Gavin Hamilton, the Rockets VP of Business Development.
"This is a great opportunity for our fans to hear about the WHL, the decisions that are made in the league and where we are heading in the future."
The discussion is set for Nov. 7 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. It is a free event and coffee and sweets will be served.
For more information and to RSVP to attend the question and answer period, e-mail Gavin Hamilton at
