1.How will this event differ given our current COVID situation?
a.Given the current Alberta Public Health Orders (PHO), we are unable to host the sleepover portion of the event; however, the team at Oilers Entertainment Group (OEG) has planned some great post-game activities for Scouting members, including games, crafts, scavenger hunts, and more. All activities will follow current PHO and Scouts Canada Pandemic Standards. The OEG will have additional staff on hand to support this event and ensure everyone has a fun, safe event. For more information on the cleaning and sanitizing procedures at Rogers Place, please check out their website: OEG Cleaning Protocols
b.In addition, all Scouts Canada members participating in this event will have a dedicated entrance in Ford Hall. There will also be Scouts Canada volunteers on hand to answer any questions you may have.
c.All attendees will need to wear a mask at all times, unless eating or drinking.
d.The OEG will be issuing electronic tickets to minimize contact and all attendees over the age of 12 will need to provide proof of vaccination prior to entering the arena.
2.How will this event differ given our current Scouts Canada Pandemic Stage 4 status?
a.This event is being hosted at a large, modern building with cleaning and ventilation standards that exceed the recommended protocols and they are currently limited to 50% capacity, due to the most recent PHO. With this in mind, there will be plenty of space for groups to follow Scouts Canada Pandemic Stage 4 guidelines and the OEG are able to support us in staggering the seating arrangements. Each group is responsible for following Stage 4 guidelines, including creating and submitting their own Adventure Application Form (AAF) prior to the activity. Please contact your Relationship Manager or Council Key 3 if you require assistance with this.
3.How will the post-game skating event be handled?
a.All active Scouts Canada members (youth or Scouter) that have tickets to the Oil Kings game will be able to sign up on a first-come-first-serve basis to be able to skate on the ice at Rogers Arena after the game. An online waiver will need to be completed at the time of sign-up. There will a total of 400 spots available for this event. Each skater will be responsible for bringing their own skates and helmet to the game; a secure area will be provided to stow this gear during the game. Dedicated OEG staff and Scouts Canada volunteers will be on hand to help direct and support skaters during this activity (including assisting with skate tying).
4.Can non-registered parents, siblings, or friends take part in the post-game skate?
a.No, this event is only open to currently registered members.
5.My youth would like to participate in the skating event, but we don’t have skates. Will there be skates to rent at the game?
a.No, all skaters must bring their own equipment to the game. If you do not have skates or a helmet, there are lots of places in Edmonton that rent skating gear. Please check out this list: [Add link to contact list]
6.Will we be able to eat or drink at the game?
a.Given the most current PHO, eating and drinking at Rogers Place is allowed in the designated areas ONLY. Water stations are available throughout the facility. There will be a concession stand open after the game just for Scouting members, as well.
7.Will there still be a movie?
a.Yes! Following the welcome from members of the OEG (and a special birthday celebration to honour Lord Baden Powell), a movie will be played on the jumbotron. The skating event will take place on the ice while the movie is playing.
b.During the movie event, there will also be games and activities available for those who are looking for something else to do.
8.Will there be a badge?
a.Yes! We hope to the have the badges available at the game, but this is subject to delivery. Badge pick-up information will be shared once details are confirmed. If we are not able to distribute them at the game, arrangements will be made with each group for pick-up or delivery of the badges.
