EVALUATION

SEA LEVEL READINGS INDICATE A TSUNAMI WAS GENERATED. IT MAY HAVE
BEEN DESTRUCTIVE ALONG COASTS NEAR THE EARTHQUAKE EPICENTER AND
COULD ALSO BE A THREAT TO MORE DISTANT COASTS. AUTHORITIES SHOULD
TAKE APPROPRIATE ACTION IN RESPONSE TO THIS POSSIBILITY. THIS
CENTER WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR SEA LEVEL DATA TO DETERMINE THE
EXTENT AND SEVERITY OF THE THREAT.

FOR ALL AREAS – WHEN NO MAJOR WAVES ARE OBSERVED FOR TWO HOURS
AFTER THE ESTIMATED TIME OF ARRIVAL OR DAMAGING WAVES HAVE NOT
OCCURRED FOR AT LEAST TWO HOURS THEN LOCAL AUTHORITIES CAN ASSUME
THE THREAT IS PASSED. DANGER TO BOATS AND COASTAL STRUCTURES CAN
CONTINUE FOR SEVERAL HOURS DUE TO RAPID CURRENTS. AS LOCAL
CONDITIONS CAN CAUSE A WIDE VARIATION IN TSUNAMI WAVE ACTION THE
ALL CLEAR DETERMINATION MUST BE MADE BY LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

ESTIMATED INITIAL TSUNAMI WAVE ARRIVAL TIMES AT FORECAST POINTS
WITHIN THE WARNING AND WATCH AREAS ARE GIVEN BELOW. ACTUAL
ARRIVAL TIMES MAY DIFFER AND THE INITIAL WAVE MAY NOT BE THE
LARGEST. A TSUNAMI IS A SERIES OF WAVES AND THE TIME BETWEEN
SUCCESSIVE WAVES CAN BE FIVE MINUTES TO ONE HOUR.

31st Annual Spruce Kings Show Home Lottery ~ Draw Date: May 15, 2013

? PRIZES/WINNERS ? SPONSORS ? GALLERY ? SHOW HOME LOTTERY RULES ? MEDIA RELEASES ?

The Prince George Spruce Kings Show Home Lottery is the team’s largest fund raising effort; because the hockey club is a non-profit community owned organization, all proceeds from the Show Home stay in Prince George. It is because of the Show Home Lottery that the team is able to offer fans of junior hockey the lowest ticket price in the BCHL.

This year’s Show Home is the 31st Annual Show Home and is the thirteenth in the picturesque Aberdeen Glen Subdivision. At over 1500 square feet on the main floor with appliances from the Northern Hardware included and many extra features donated by local businesses, this year’s Lottery Home is valued at $434,000 (HST and Land Taxes included). The Show Home is located at 2668 Links Drive, in the Aberdeen Glen Golf Course Subdivision.

This year’s Show Home Lottery includes ten early bird draws with prizes from the Northern Hardware, Canadian Tire, Central Builders, Japatedon Travel & Cruises, Papa’s Woodworking as well as a shopping spree from Save On Foods on December 2nd. There are also four travel get-aways from Japatedon Travel & Cruises including a Vancouver Canuck’s Get-Away on November 25th, a Mexican Riveria Dream Cruise to be drawn on February 10th, a Las Vegas Get-Away for two on February 24th and a Disney Family Vacation on March 17th.

Other Early Bird prizes include a sporting supplies package on December 9th and a custom furniture package on March 10th, both from Papas Woodworking. The remaining early bird prizes include a Canadian Tire Gift Card worth $2,000 to be drawn on December 16th, a 41″ high definition television from the Northern Hardware on December 30th and a Central Builders Gift Card valued at $2,000.00 to be awarded on January 13th.

The Grand Prize of the 1501 square foot Show Home custom built by Scheck Construction, with appliances from the Northern Hardware, will be drawn on May 15, 2013 at the Show Home.
