Minor Hockey, Fundraisers and Other Events
The goal of the Western Canada Collectibles Experience is to grow into a complete collectors or sports fan overall experience featuring things like meet-n-greets, on-ice opportunities, banquets, contests, social settings and other events to help build a sense of community. This year we have the Vancouver Giants hosting the Kamloops Blazers, A new Trade Night where fellow collectors can complete sets or add to their own personal collections and the always popular Timbits Hockey Jamboree, a massive day-long tournament for H1 aged hockey players. Others are getting involved as well, The Joseph Richards Group is holding its "One Night Out" fundraiser following the Giants game on Friday night and the traditional Douglas Days Banquet will take place on Saturday afternoon.
