The annual Invermere Valley Echo NHL hockey pool has returned for another season.

Every entrant in the contest gets to pick one player from each of the 24 groups below — the more points your players collectively score throughout the hockey season, the higher you score in the pool… the higher your chances of winning!

Last year, over 100 people joined in. Entry is free and whoever scores the most points in any one week will win a weekly prize — a $10 gift card for Tim Horton’s.

The end-of-season grand prize is two rounds of golf with a cart at the Copper Point Ridge course on the east side of Highway 95 and at Copper Point course on the west side of Highway 95, which will be awarded to the participant with the most points overall.

“We want to help keep the community engaged in the game,” said Amanda Nason, Invermere Valley Echo spokesperson. “The Echo’s hockey pool is one of the longest-standing wagers in the valley and we want everyone to participate this year. Thank you for the continued business support of this feature.”

Entry forms need to be filled out and dropped off at the valley newspapers’ office at #8, 1008 8th Avenue in Invermere, across from the Community Hall, by Wednesday, October 7th.

Check The Valley Echo each week to find out if you’re a weekly winner — if you see your name, drop by the office to pick up your prize.
