Signage helps support local sports clubs

The Cariboo Recreation Complex is offering local businesses and organizations a chance to be exposed to thousands.

The Cariboo Recreation Complex is offering local businesses and organizations a chance to be exposed to thousands of people while giving back to local sports organizations.

The Complex is encouraging local advertisers to purchase wall sign, rink board, or Zamboni machine space in the twin ice arenas, where it will be seen by thousands of local and visiting hockey players, figure skaters, lacrosse players, and speed skaters and their spectators, who spend a great deal of time in the arenas.

“Adding in the annual graduation ceremonies, community special events, after school care, fitness class users and hundreds of other smaller bookings, it is clear that the arenas are a prime location for sign advertising that sees hundreds of thousands of captive eyes per year,” says the city’s director of community services, Geoff Paynton.

In addition to the advertising benefits, arena advertising also supports the following community groups:

• Williams Lake Minor Hockey Association

• Williams Lake Skating Club

• Blue Fins Swim Club

• Williams Lake Stampeders

• Williams Lake Big Horns Lacrosse

Fifty per cent of all signage revenue is divided evenly among these groups to help support the valuable programs and services that they provide to the community.

The remaining 50 per cent contributed to the ongoing operations of the Complex and all of the programs and services it, and its staff, provides throughout the community.

There are a number of sign sizes and locations available, ranging from four by four wall signs to lit signs beneath the scoreboard, Zamboni signs, and rink board space.
