West Kelowna makes Hockeyville Top 5

Hockeyville central in West Kelowna is a busy place this week.

Adrenaline is running high, as the community had a big win this weekend, which put it in the final five in CBC's Kraft Hockeyville competition.

The prize? $100,000 to upgrade its arena, and the chance to host an NHL Preseason game.

Until 9 p.m. Tuesday night, dedicated hockey fans and community members will be furiously clicking "vote" from their computers at home, and from Hockeyville Central, at the Comfort Inn in West Kelowna.

Daybreak host Chris Walker spoke with West Kelowna Hockeyville bid co-ordinator Adam Less and Larry MacLean, who is taking time off work, and stayed up all night to keep voting for West Kelowna to make the final cut for Hockeyville 2012.
