Where does the team practice? Can the public attend?
Generally the Cougars practice at the CN Centre, although this varies when the CN Centre is hosting concerts or other events. Most practices at the CN Centre are open to the public and on non-game days generally begin around 9:15am. Fore more information on team practices, please phone Cougars office at 250-561-0783.
Is there a contact for items that are lost at the CN Centre during Cougars games?
Items found on game nights are taken directly to the CN Centre Administration Office. Please contact them at 250-561-7777 for more information.
Why do the Cougars always schedule back-to-back games against the same teams?
Any of our games that are played outside BC are scheduled by the League. We schedule our remaining games ourselves at a League meeting held each July. Our schedule is always a compromise. If we want other teams to cooperate and allow us to strong a number of games together for a road trip, the we must extend the same courtesy to them by allowing them to come up to Prince George and play two games in a row.
Who chooses what food is offered at the CN Centre?
Currently, the building has a contract with a food services company by the name of Eurest. As the Cougars do not receive any money from food and beverage sales, we have very little say in how they operate, the menus items they offer, or the prices they charge. We have found in the past that Eurest is very happy to cooperate with our fans. If there is something you would like them to consider selling, or have any questions or comments, feel free to email our Vice President, Business at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will pass your request on to the appropriate person.
Who is in charge of maintaining the CN Centre on Cougars game nights?
The CN Centre is owned by the City of Prince George. We lease it out on our game nights, but the City is still responsible for maintenance. If you are at one of our games, and see a problem, please find one of our friendly volunteers and they will radio the City’s crew to get the problem fixed. We also fill out CN Centre Repair Reports after each game, and provide the information to the City. If you see anything that needs their attention, let us know and we’ll pass on your concern.
