Bishop's Falls makes it into top five
The five potential Hockeyville towns for 2010 have been announced and this province has made the cut again.
Hockey fans voted for the communities they thought should be declared Hockeyville and after 12 days of voting and nearly 2 million votes cast, Bishop's Falls is in the running to become the next Hockeyville.
Bishop's Falls is competing with Dundas, Ont., Stanstead, Que., Cranbrook, B.C. and Lawrencetown, N.S.
Canadians have until one minute before midnight on March 31 to vote for the next hockey town.
You can vote online by visiting CBCSports.ca/hockeyville, via telephone by calling 1-866-533-8066 or by texting "vote" plus the community name to 111888. Texting is capped at 25 texts per day per mobile number and there is a 15-cent per text charge plus any carriage fees in addition to standard text messaging rates; data charges may also apply.
Then on April 3, the Kraft Hockeyville team and CBC's Hockey Night in Canada crew will visit and broadcast live from each of the Top 5 communities. The Kraft Hockeyville 2010 winner will be announced that evening. The winning community will host a 2010/11 NHL pre-season game and win $100,000 in arena upgrades courtesy of Kraft Canada. Four runner-up communities will receive $25,000 each for arena upgrades from Kraft Canada.
