Locals ready to Rumble at the Rink in less than a month

The “Rumble at the Rink” is under a month away and the billboard featuring Parksville’s Aubrey Morrow serves as a reminder.

The “Rumble at the Rink” is under a month away and the giant billboard, featuring Parksville’s Aubrey “Bam Bam” Morrow on the highway to Nanaimo serves as a reminder that fight night is drawing near.

Gloved Up Promotions has put together the card, tickets are now on sale and the excitement is growing for the “Rumble at the Rink” which will go down May 23 at the Frank Crane Arena in Nanaimo.

With “Bam Bam” on the billboard, Gloved Up Promotions’ Terry Strawson is excited to see it finally set up and hopes that it catches the attention of fans taking the drive down to Nanaimo.

“It’s nice to have it up there,” Strawson said. “We’re very pleased with the way that it turned out and we owe a big thanks to Aubrey’s older brother, Spencer Morrow, for helping us out in a big way with it.”

“We’re very fortunate to have the network that we do around us and, thanks to Spencer, this was something that came a little easier for us to go ahead with.”

With the final pieces falling in place for the event, Strawson is excited that the event is right around the corner but he’s equally excited about a draw at the event taking place on May 23 that everyone in attendance will have a chance to win.

“The trip for two to Las Vegas is pretty exciting,” Strawson said.

“I wish that I could be part of it myself, it’s a great bonus for all those who are going to be in attendance.”

“You get a ticket and not only get to enjoy a great card for the night but have the chance to win a trip for two down to Las Vegas as well, can’t go wrong with that.”
