OKANAGAN RESORT CHANGES NAME IN RESPONSE TO SUN FM PETITION

'PREDATOR RIDGE' BECOMES 'CANUCKS RIDGE'

'99.9 SUN FM Mornings with Kevin & Sonia' in Kelowna committed to supporting the Vancouver Canucks in their playoff series against the Nashville Predators launched an online petition April 29th to suggest the Predator Ridge Resort temporarily change their name to "Canucks Ridge" in solidarity with the Vancouver Canucks. Hear the audio of the call that officially announced the switch during the series; including flags & signage, staff sporting team jerseys and the Canucks 'alternate' logo being cut into the 18th fairway of The Ridge course. And their pledge per goal scored donation to the Canuck Place Children's Hospice.

A good omen as the Canucks advance to the Western Conference Finals. From the Predator Ridge website:
"We're rallying behind 'our' team and cheering you on from the greens on our fairways, under clear blue skies as you continue on your journey to the Stanley Cup! Go Canucks Go!"
