STAY AND PLAY AT CANUCKS RIDGE? PETITION CHANGES RESORT NAME IN SUPPORT OF VANCOUVER CANUCKS

The crowd has spoken - Go Canucks, Go!

VERNON, BC, April 29 /CNW/ - In response to a petition launched by SUN FM Morning show hosts Kevin Lim and Sonia Sidhu, Predator Ridge Resort has temporarily changed their name to "Canucks Ridge" in support of the Vancouver Canucks. Having received over 200 signatures rallying for the name change, "Canucks Ridge" will be cheering on the home team all week as they face-off against the Nashville Predators in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Guests who visit the resort will be greeted by a new "Canucks Ridge" sign and staff will don Vancouver Canucks jerseys as their new uniform. The golf courses will be revamped to reflect the name change as well, with "Canucks Ridge" flags on the greens, new golf cart signage and even the Canucks logo cut in to the 18th fairway.

"We were pleasantly surprised by the petition and all of us as Predator Ridge felt that we should show our support for the home team. Go Canucks, go!" says Rod Cochrane, general manager of the resort.

The Clubhouse Lounge at "Canucks Ridge" will be decorated in blue and green and patrons will enjoy a game night special - each will draw a player's name and if that player scores a goal they'll receive a complimentary drink.

Predator Ridge will also donate $25 to the Canucks Place Children's Hospice for every goal scored during the series.

Depending on the outcome of the games, The Vancouver Canucks and The Nashville Predators could play each other up until May 11th - during which fans of both teams are more than welcome to stay, play and watch the games at "Canucks Ridge."
