Frequently Asked Questions
What is Thunderball?
Thunderball is the only time all year that our parents have a chance to talk to each other without needing winter apparel all evening long. It is a chance to mix and mingle with parents and TBirds supporters on a winter's evening surrounded by great food, drinks, laughter and a few games and auction items.
How is Thunderball a fundraiser?
During the event, there will be a few ways to help. In the past we've had things like 50/50 draws, contests to win a registration fee for next season, a game of heads and tails, wine/beer pulls and so many other fun ways to get rid of those pesky $20 bills that you will have filled your wallet with before coming.
The feature elements of the night will be in the auctions. We will start to tease out the items closer to the event but, as in previous years, the auction items provide opportunities to support for all budgets.
What is the profit used for?
This annual fundraiser is Vancouver Thunderbird Hockey's way of helping keep the rising costs of ice from impacting registration fees every year. While there are other elements in our fees, payments for the ice make up the largest portion and with a minimum annual increase of 5% for all our ice, Thunderball has played a key role in helping us keep fees much less than they would otherwise be. We are committed to the continued development of our players, and if we can help this happen by having a fun night out, what better way is there to do something great for our kids.
