Lacrosse teams of Langley have courteously created a means for their followers to observe Canucks games at their barn.
The Langley Events Centre will illustrate Game 5 and 6 of the Stanley Cup Final on its foursided Jumbotron free of charge to Canuckleheads in the area.
Jared Harman, director of business development at the centre said, “We want to open the doors and create a spot for the community to get together and cheer on the Canucks.”
“We were having a hard time juggling around. It really didn’t become an option until Game 5. We would have liked to do it sooner, but we didn’t want to displace our community teams.”
The Langley Thunder Lacrosse teams and Langley Junior Thunder together shuffled through out their home games so the viewing parties can move ahead.
Ken Buchan Jr., Langley Thunder president said, “I thought it was fantastic.”
The team of Buchan has even altered around practice times so players could observe the Canucks games and still find there promptly.
Langley residents have been inquiring the arena to demonstrate the games over the previous few weeks, Harman said.
Harman said, “Everybody wants to be part of it, it’s a unique community experience.”
Harman said, “Obviously seeing the crowds in Surrey and Vancouver, if we could get a response like that it’d be great for Langley.”
Players from the new British Columbia of Thunder and Langley Hockey League team, the Rivermen will be around to meet the followers.
The occasion starts at 4 p.m. and refreshment stand will be open.
