Expect almost 3,000 fans in Calgary for CW Final Four

Games Expected to Sell Out Dinos Fever was a long time coming, but it has become contagious, with attendance for the Dinos-Bears Central Final drawing 2,600 and 2,880 fans, and there is tremendous interest in this coming weekend's Canada West Final Four Tournament at the University. Ticket Sales available at 220-7749, and fans are encouraged to buy in advance.

Adult $12
Student/Senior $9
UC Staff/Alumni $9
UC Students $5
Children Under 6 Free
Family (2 adults + 2 students) $35

Notes ... We have to assume there will be a streamlined process for fans who bought tickets in advance, and are picking them up on game night. Because there is an earlier game, the arrival time of fans should be spread out a bit more, and that will help the staff on Friday. The Pep Band was playing in a competition last weekend, and not available for the games, but the Athletic Department is trying to negotiate their return for the Final Four. Three of the top 5 teams in the CIS are in this Tournament, with two to be earning spots at the Nationals. Brandon #2 faces Alberta (unranked) at 5:000 pm Friday, and Calgary #3 meets UBC #5 in the 7:00 pm game, with the winners representing Canada West at Nationals. The 3rd place game goes at 5:00 pm Saturday, with the Championship at 7:00 pm.

The heading should have read, " Canada West Final Four Expected to Sell Out". Ticket sales have been more than brisk for this weekend's Final Four in Calgary, and the hopeful words 'Fire Marshall' were mentioned. This ubiquitous personality decreed a limit of 4400 tickets be printed, so 'The Jack' at the U of C will be packed, by all indicators.
