Junior hockey’s holy grail is coming to town.
The Royal Bank Cup trophy, which is awarded to the top junior hockey team in Canada, will be at the RBC Cup booth at the Sunshine Festival in downtown Vernon Saturday.
“At the booth in front of the Royal Bank, a puck shoot contest will pit shooters against Viper goalie Danny Todosychuk,” said Mike Lane, committee chairperson.
“Prizes for the puck shoot and for a Viper/Laker trivia contest will include Viper gear and souvenirs.”
Viper players will also sign autographs and will take turns in a dunk tank.
The RBC Cup trophy will also be seen at scenic viewpoints in the North Okanagan so it can be photographed for publicity releases.
The national junior hockey championships are set for May 10 to 18, 2014 at Vernon’s Kal Tire Place.
