It isn't often fans literally have a chance to sit in the same room and ask questions of the Commissioner of the Western Hockey League. That is about to change Thursday night when over one hundred Kelowna Rockets season ticket holders will join me and Rockets GM Bruce Hamilton for a question and answer session at Manhattan Point Restaurant with Ron Robison. I will be moderating the evening (7 pm) but I want to see the fans step up and ask questions of Robison. One of the issues that will likely surface is last years playoffs where officiating, particularily in a second round series with Kamloops, appeared to be one sided. In fact, it was a letter to Robison from a Rockets season ticket holder about that very incident that prompted a visit from the Commissioner to an event like this.
From what I understand this is the first time this format has been tried and Kelowna fans are the first to get this unique opportunity.
If you are a season ticket holder and want to be part of the crowd, you can e-mail Gavin Hamilton for details. It should be a fun night.
