Wild Set plans for "Thank you Ernie" Night

Recently the Wenatchee Wild organization was made aware that long time public address announcer Ernie Rodriguez would not be returning what would have been his ninth season. As the search for someone to fill his formidable shoes on the mic continues, plans have been made to honor Rodriguez for his service and contributions to Wild Nation.

Saturday, October 1 has been designated as “Thank You, Ernie” Night at the Wild game, when they host the Salmon Arm Silverbacks at 7:05 pm in the Town Toyota Center. As fans enter the building they will be given a commemorative print featuring Ernie, which he will be available to sign after the game on the concourse. But that’s not all the team has in store.
Fulfilling a long time dream, Ernie will be given the honor of dropping the ceremonial first puck. Then, during the first intermission, he will take the mic at center ice and his wish to address Wild Nation directly will be honored.

In the eight seasons that the Wenatchee Wild have been skating in the Town Toyota Center, one of the most prevalent pieces of the game night experience has been “Uncle Ernie” on the mic, lending both his vocal talents and signature “howl” to the ambience in the arena. Rodriguez’ self-imposed departure leaves only Assistant Coach Chris Clark and Equipment Manager Pepe Sandoval remaining from the Wild’s expansion season.

There is another way in which the Wild will honor Ernie throughout the season, which Ernie will reveal to the crowd during his intermission speech.

The Wenatchee Wild organization is excited for the growth and positive changes on the horizon this season. Stay up to date with the team all year long on Facebook (, Twitter (@WenatcheeWild1), YouTube (Wen Wild), Snapchat (wwildhockey), and on the team’s official website (

Wild to Play Four Preseason Home Games

The Wenatchee Wild, proud members of the BCHL, have announced they will play four preseason games in Wenatchee in preparation for their sophomore season in the British Columbia Hockey League.

The games will be played in “The Rink”, the adjacent ice surface at Town Toyota Center that also serves as home for the Wolves, Wilderness, and Wolverines. Tickets for the games will be sold as general admission. The first two games will pit the Wild against the Coquitlam Express on Friday, August 26 and Saturday August 27. The following weekend, it’s a rematch of last season’s Mainland Division Finals as the Chilliwack Chiefs come to town on Friday September 2, and Saturday September 3. Each of the games begin at 7:05 pm.

Wenatchee Wild Head Coach / GM Bliss Littler is excited about the opportunity to have preseason games. “In years past, in the other league, the travel alone made it impossible to have any real preseason games”, he explained. “This gives us a good look at our development, and provides a great tool to prepare for the regular season.”

The Wild open their season this year as they did last year, with the longest road trip of the season in terms of distance as they head to Prince George for a three game set with the Spruce Kings beginning September 14. The home opener is set for Friday September 30 against the Langley Rivermen.

General admission tickets for the preseason games are ten dollars and will be available for purchase at The Rink walk-up window on the day of the games.

While the summer sun beats down on the valley, the Wenatchee Wild, proud members of the BCHL are busy making preparations for their July camp to be held this weekend here in Central Washington. The camp sessions are free for fans to attend and open to the general public, and will be conducted in “The Rink”, the ice surface adjacent to the main arena at the Town Toyota Center.

A handful of familiar faces will take the ice this weekend, with third year veterans like Dakota Raabe, Troy Conzo, Tyler Rockwell, and Colin Burston joining fourth year returner Brendan Harris. Charlie Combs and Matthew Baker are expected to return for a second season, along with second year defensemen Alex Bates, Aaron Murray, and Konsta Jaske. Goaltender Garrett Nieto looks to build on his solid showing last season as well.

Four teams of camp participants will meet briefly with staff after registering Friday morning, and then go through a series of practice drills called “small games” to get warmed up and acclimated. Friday evening, all four teams will skate in a pair of games. Saturday, each team will play twice, while the middle of the day will feature a thirty minute goalie session. Camp standouts will be selected to skate in the Sunday morning All Star game, followed by exit interviews for the players with the coaches. The players will be battling for an invitation to the Wild Main Camp, which will commence in Wenatchee on August 22, just prior to the new season.

The Wenatchee Wild July camp is an event which can be used not only for coaches to measure newcomers with and against proven returners, but also a great opportunity for up and coming players to identify areas to grow their own game as well.

“We love that we can have our July camp here in Wenatchee”, explains Head Coach / GM Bliss Littler. “We are proud of our community, our facility, and our organization as a whole, so getting to show it off to prospective players is a good thing.” He adds, “We are also pleased to share the process of constructing the team with our fans.”

The Rink Seeks Naming Partner

The Town Toyota Center complex is a regional ice and event venue that features 4,300 seats in the main arena and 500 bleacher seats in the year-round Ice Rink. The Rink, the adjacent facility to the main arena, is the only permanent year-round ice rink in Central Washington. Over 100,000 users enter the Rink annually to learn to skate, play hockey, public skate or other ice-skating related activity. The Rink seeks a naming partner who will align with the arena’s mission to “provide recreational events in a fun and safe environment to benefit the communities of North Central Washington”. The naming partner will receive sponsor name on the outside of the Rink facility, logos on the doorways, banner signs above the scoreboard, and logos in the ice among many other marketing deliverables. The Town Auto Group remains as the overall facility naming partner, but relinquished the Rink facility in their contractual terms last year. The Rink naming partner will be subservient to Town Toyota’s name. All listings of the Rink will have the Town Toyota Center prior to the naming partner at the Rink.

The Town Toyota Center has over 300,000 guests that attend the arena annually and 100,000 users in the Rink. On a typical day at the Rink, skaters will arrive by 6:00 a.m. to skate and conclude around 10:00 p.m. Parents, coaches, and ice skaters frequent daily to practice or play. The Town Toyota Center Rink employs over 30 part-time people as well as being the home to the Wenatchee Wolves Hockey Team and Wenatchee Figure Skating Club. “The Rink is the heart and soul of the region as a fouryear old can dream to become an Olympic skater or an adult can learn to skate for the very first time,” states Mark Miller, Town Toyota Center, general manager. “Ice skating is a life skill and builds self-confidence,” adds Louise Kapeikis, Town Toyota Center, skating director. Kapeikis’s daughter, Kaela, learned to skate at 18 months of age and now is a Disney on Ice professional figure skater and performer. “She credits the yearround ice at the Rink for her skating accomplishments,” says Kapeikis. The Rink facility is an integral part of the greater Wenatchee valley and helps contribute to the nearly 7 million dollars in economic impact annually. Interested business partners should contact Jennifer Bushong, Town Toyota Center, vice-president of marketing partnerships at 509.888.7333 or email, 

G.S. Long Roughstock Rodeo is HELL on HOOVES

Wenatchee, WA –G.S. Long, Wild West Events and ZCountry present a Rough Stock Rodeo on Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14 inside the Town Toyota Center. Each night will consist of Bareback riders, Barrel Racing, Bullriding, Saddlebronc riding, and Bull poker. New this year is pony rides for the little tykes and the fan favorite Mutton Buston. There will be a total of forty-five contestants vying for hundreds of dollars, the exclusive rodeo buckle, and of course, bragging rights. The two judges will score 100 points total. Each judge has 50 points; 25 points for the rider and 25 points for the horse. The top eight contestants in each category will advance to Saturday’s Rodeo and then in a head to head competition.

On Friday, May 13, the rodeo will feature eleven contestants riding Bareback, which is compared to riding a jackhammer with one hand. This event requires the strongest cowboys in rodeo to compete. The riders hold onto a “suitcase handle” on a strap on the horse’s shoulder with one hand. The cowboy leans back and kicks his knees up to retain balance with the goal of being eight seconds of pulling against gravity. The rider with the closest 100 point score wins. In addition, the audience will have an opportunity to score their favorite horse and rider. The People’s Choice winner will be announced at the end of the show. After the Bareback riding, saddle up for some fast action and quick turns by the ladies.

Barrel Racing is as mesmerizing as a horse at full gallop.  The rider runs a cloverleaf pattern consisting of turns around three barrels and then a furious spring to the finish. The fastest time wins! Then, hold onto your seat for the bullriding.

Bullriding is 8-seconds and 2,000 pounds of terror! Bullriding requires balance, flexibility, quick reflexes and a tough mental attitude to step onto the back of a bull. The cowboy holds one hand onto a rope which wraps around the bull is only half the battle. After the inevitable ‘dismount’ bullfighters stationed in the arena protect the rider. Then, saddle-up for the classic event in rodeo.

Saddlebronc riding is born from cowboys taming wild horses. The cowboy only hold on to a thick rope attached to the horse’s halter. Every move must be synchronized with the movement of the horse for eight seconds. An outrider follows the action and helps the successful rider transfer to the pick-up horse at full gallop. Then, bring on the kids in Mutton Buston.

Columbia Valley Community Health’s Mutton Bustin will feature 15 kids from ages four-to-seven years old, a maximum of 45 pounds per kid. Each rider has a helmet and is placed on a sheep. The kid holds onto the sheep as long as possible. The rider who holds on the longest wins the trophy. After the mutton race, the crowd favorite is last, but not least.

New this year to the G.S. Long Rodeo is the Mcdonald’s Pony Rides. Children under 12 can ride ponies for only $3 per kid or two for $5 each. For all time action, don’t miss the finale event, Cowboy Poker.

Cowboy Poker consists of four regular folks who pay $50 each to play poker in the middle of the arena as a bull is released. The last one sitting wins the pot and of course, bragging rights.

Saturday, May 14 Rough Stock Rodeo will consist of the same schedule, but with the top eight riders in each division. The top two riders will advance to the Valley Feed head-to-head competition to determine the ultimate champion.

Special Guests:

Rodeo Barrelman, J.J. Harrison is the funny man who will entertain the whole family!

Friday, May 13: The Washington State Apple Blossom royalty, Queen Kori Martin, Princesses Emily Holmes and Sami Everhart will be featured as part of the program. 

Plus, Miss East Cascades 2016 Brianna Eddy, representing Chelan, Douglas, Okanogan and Kittitas counties at Miss Washington will be present.

Saturday, May 14: Miss Apple Valley Outstanding Teen, Cassandra Noyd vying for Miss Washington Outstanding Teen will be present.
