Reign Promotional Sschedule Loaded With Giveaways
Giveaways Feature Magnet Schedules, Bobbleheads, Pucks and More
ONTARIO, Calif. – The Ontario Reign of the ECHL, proud affiliate of the NHL Los Angeles Kings and the AHL Manchester Monarchs, announced today the release of their 2008-09 promotional schedule.
The Reign promotional schedule is laden with giveaways that the young and young at heart will be sure to enjoy. Every Saturday during the Reign’s inaugural season will feature a giveaway beginning Oct. 25 against Las Vegas, when everyone in attendance will receive a Reign Magnet Schedule and Thunderstix as they enter the arena for the first time.
November giveaways include an Ontario Reign Team Poster (Nov. 1) and on Nov. 15 fans can pick-up a Military themed puck, the first in a three-series collection, to commemorate Military Appreciation night. The second collector puck will fly into fans’ hands on Feb. 7 when the Reign take on Alaska in the first-annual “Pink in the Rink” charity game. After the game, fans have the opportunity to bid on Reign team jerseys to call their own with proceeds from the auction benefiting breast cancer research. Fans can pick up the third and final collector puck on Mar. 7 when the Reign host “Green Night”, a night centered around energy and water conservation and all things “going green”.
During the holidays the Reign are giving kids something to look forward to with a Bicycle giveaway on Dec. 13 and a Reign Holiday Stocking on Dec. 20.
A series of three Bobblehead giveaway nights are scheduled for Jan. 17 against Utah, Feb. 14 (Anti-Valentine’s Day Promotion) against Utah and Mar. 21 versus Phoenix.
