The Ottawa Senators announced today they will host the ALL IN. ALL RED. car rally, presented by local Honda dealers and in association with the Ottawa Citizen and TEAM 1200, on Sunday, April 18. The rally is scheduled to start at Scotiabank Place at 11:30 a.m. The Senators continue the 2010 post-season when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference quarter-final series that evening at 6:30 p.m.
A convoy of cars will travel from Scotiabank Place to Ottawa City Hall, where Cyril Leeder, president of Senators Sports & Entertainment, will briefly address the crowd before Mayor Larry O’Brien concludes the event by reading a proclamation. The pair will then share in raising a Senators flag at 12:30 p.m.
Sens fans are asked to decorate cars, fly car flags and dress in Senators gear. The top 30 decorated cars, as determined by a panel of judges, will be given a spot in the convoy and guaranteed parking once the rally reaches Ottawa City Hall. The top three decorated cars will be awarded a pair of tickets to a Senators home playoff game. Ballots will be available for fans to enter a draw to win a two-year lease for a 2010 Honda Civic Sport, which will be featured as the lead car in the convoy.
