A kickoff rally will be held to mark Vernon being named the host for the 2014 RBC Cup Junior A national championship.

The half-hour rally beings at noon as part of the Downtown Vernon Association’s Sunshine Festival.

“The rally will be lively and entertaining, but the main reason for you to attend is an important announcement about a partnership between local minor hockey teams and the RBC Cup organizers,” said Chris Collard, RBC Cup co-chairperson.

Hockey Canada will be on hand for the rally as will members of former Vernon Lakers and Vernon Vipers teams.
