RBC Cup gets support from Greater Vernon taxpayers

The host committee will also be allowed to control food and beverage service in VIP areas

The Greater Vernon Advisory Committee agreed Thursday to waive its cut of merchandize sales for the 2014 Royal Bank Cup and absorb the cost of providing clean ice at Kal Tire Place..

“The ask was reasonable and fairly small,” said Mike Macnabb, GVAC chairperson, of the request from the RBC Cup host committee.

The host committee will also be allowed to control food and beverage service in VIP areas during the national junior hockey championships May 10 to 18, 2014.

GVAC will also allow a second zamboni to be used.
