West Nipissing is looking to be the next Kraft Hockeyville.
The Sturgeon Falls Arena has been nominated for the chance to win $250,000 in arena upgrades and the opportunity to host an NHL pre-season game.
The contest is in the rally phase until Feb. 19 with points accounting for 20 percent of the community’s score.
Residents can help add points by sharing nomination stories, photos of the Marcel and Jane Labbé Arena and more at the following link: https://hockeyville.kraftcanada.ca/community/sturgeonfallsarena
Judging starts Feb. 20 with the top 4 communities announced on March 11 with 32 hours of voting to start at 9 am on March 31.
The winner will be announced on Apr. 1.
North Bay won the 2007 Hockeyville competition and hosted the Atlanta Thrashers and New York Islanders at Memorial Gardens in September that year.
