Black Press presents multi-platform hockey pool

Users can log in through website and Facebook, interact and compete with other hockey enthusiasts.

Black Press has been running an immensely popular hockey pool in the West Kootenay Advertiser for years now, but this year they’re upgrading to a more modern, multi-platform, user-friendly hockey pool.

“All you have to do is go to nelsonstar.com or visit our Facebook, and each week we’ve paired up the Canadian games, and you choose which team you think will win in each match up,” said the pool’s organizer Kiomi Tucker. “You just choose who you think will win, and then you get a point for every one you get right.”

She said the new system is much more interactive.

“Once you log in you can see where you’re ranked, you can upload photos of yourself, and it’s way more interactive. You have options to share stuff on Facebook, you can brag to your friends, and there will be weekly prizes.”

There will also be business sponsors, called VIP Pickers, whose choices will be published so other competitors can compare.

The grand prize is a West Kootenay sports package consisting of golf passes, lift tickets to Whitewater, Endless Adventure gift certificate, zipline tickets and more!

There’s no official cut-off date, but Tucker said it’s best to register and make your picks by Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 10 a.m.

“There will be reminder emails that get sent out reminding you to make your picks as well.”

In the top right corner of nelsonstar.com is a Contests button. Click on it to register.

Sponsors include Itza, Mallard’s Source for Sports, Nelson Toyota, Mainjet Motorsports, Jackson’s Hole, Nelson Ford, Save on Foods, Ted Allen’s Jewellery and the Hume Hotel.

And though Tucker plans to participate, she’s not confident about her performance.

“I’m sure I’ll be in the bottom percentile,” she joked. “I’ll probably just base my choices on team performance from the previous week.”
