There are only 30 more sleeps until the 2010 Allan Cup hits the ice of Fort St. John.

To kick off the final days, Flyers President Paul van Nostrand and Western Financial group Branch Manager Derek Mettauer unveiled a major contest on Thursday.

Mettauer says Western Financial Group is sponsoring a $100,000 hockey shootout during the final game.

Residents can purchase tickets for $5 each or three for $10. One ticket will be drawn during the first intermission of the Allan Cup final. The winner will then have to shoot 16 out of 20 pucks into an open net, from centre ice, within 20 seconds, to win the jackpot.

Tickets are available at any of the three Western Financial Group branches around the city.

Meanwhile, Paul van Nostrand says sponsors and volunteers are still needed for the event.
