Marlies ticket holders can get on the bus

The Toronto Marlies were so impressed with the Cobourg Community Centre when they played their sold-out Oct. 6 game there that they wanted to give something back.

For every purchaser of a ticket to that game, they have provided a free ticket to their Dec. 16 game against the Grand Rapids Griffins in Toronto and declared that event to be Cobourg Night at the Ricoh Coliseum. The evening will include local minor-hockey players on the ice for the national anthem.

It promises to be a special evening, and the Cobourg Community Centre is making it easier to be there by offering bus transportation to the game for local ticket holders at the low cost of $15, tax included.

Organizers have already booked two buses, and will offer tickets until Dec. 9 at the Cobourg Community Centre. On game day, at 12:45 p.m., you can board the bus at Northumberland Mall north of Zellers.

With 2,000 tickets sold and 200 spectators occupying the standing room, community centre program co-ordinator Ashley Haynes said, the game was a tremendous success.

"We hope everyone is very excited to attend the game at the Ricoh Coliseum on Dec. 16," Haynes said.

"This is just the beginning of many more great events to be offered at the centre."
