Colorado Avalanche Fans Unite as Vyve Broadband Partners with Altitude Sports, HeadStrong Brewery to Host Viewing Party
Pizza, Prizes and an Avalanche Win Add Up to a Fan-Friendly Event
Colorado Avalanche fans in Douglas, Wyoming, were treated to a viewing party at HeadStrong Brewery on Monday, March 28, in an event hosted by Vyve Broadband and Altitude Sports network. A crowd of more than 70 people watched Monday’s game against the Nashville Predators with pizza and raffle prizes.
HeadStrong Brewery on N. Third St. in Douglas opened its doors at 5:30 p.m. for the 6 p.m. puck drop. Friendz Pizzeria delivered 23 pizzas to feed the frenzied fans. Throughout the night, prizes were raffled off including signed gear, hockey sticks, game tickets, and Vyve swag including a barbeque set.
“We’re so happy to have been a part of this and we’re really pleased that everyone in attendance had a great time,” said Joe Shanks, local system manager Vyve, who helped organize the event. “The community had a lot of fun and supported great local establishments at the same time. Plus, the Avs won, making this a win-win-win scenario.”
The Avalanche pulled off a 4-3 victory, giving the fans in attendance a big reason to cheer and keeping their hopes for a playoff bid alive.
John Hunt, owner of HeadStrong, recently switched to Vyve Broadband for Internet and TV service and built a strong relationship with Vyve’s local team in Douglas.
“Fact of the matter is we have local people here with local service that take care of us and that’s what counts to me,” said Hunt. “You call Vyve and you get a guy who’s in town, he’s local. I know he’s busy but he gets here.”
Mike Wilson, a local owner of the Sleep Inn and the Holiday Inn Express & Suites who attended the viewing party, has been impressed with Vyve’s commitment to customer service and the Douglas community.
“All of the people that I have worked with at Vyve have really, really been helpful and personable,” Wilson said. “If we have problems over here at the hotel, it’s like they put you at the top of the list and we get great service, which means a lot, especially when you’ve got a hotel to run. It helps us when we can get problems remedied as soon as possible.”
