I'd like a Trouba signing but I don't think he can be sponsored by a car dealership as he's not old enough for a drivers license

Bunch of the dealerships have said that they'll be making announcements in the new year. Vickar Chevrolet is usually good for 2+ in a season. Same with Murray Chevrolet.

Has anybody seen or heard of any upcoming events?

Checked the Facebook pages of the dealerships who have taken part in the past, nothing. No emails from any of them either.

Hmmmm...

I'd speculate that either Murray or Vickar will put something together near the end of the olympic break, more likely Murray as none of their Jets are away, but Vickar could do one with the guys who are here. Practices start back up on Feb 19th, and the Jets don't play until the 27th, so theres alot of time in there that they're in Winnipeg (history would say that it will be on the 19th or 26th, as those dealerships seem to favor Wednesdays for some reason)

Good speculation. Here's hoping you're right.

Well, I figured I'd voice my disappointment in the lack of Jets appearances/signings this season.

From what I'm aware, the only ones were Frolik/Peluso at Waverley Mitsubishi and Ladd at the RV show (admission charge for that one). The previous years saw a few more than that, was hoping for a Bogo/Trouba one at Vickar. Or even a Scheifele one somewhere.

Appreciate those who hear anything continuing to keep this thread in mind.

Agreed, it's been slim pickings this year. Not much time left.

I know you can get them at the Ice Plex when they practice out there, but I'm usually working and hate getting in the way of kids getting auto's. I just have my opening night picture I want signed but even still it's hard for me to not let every kid in front of me.

Always more important for the kids to get stuff signed, but unfortunately there are some people who don't see it that way, especially down in the exchange.

Murray and Vickar seemed pretty confident last time they responded to me that they were still going to be putting on events this year. History shows they like doing events on Wednesdays for some reason, usually from 5-7pm, and both the 2nd and 9th of April are clear for the Jets players in terms of game time commitments. Wouldn't be surprised to see 2 events on the same day like last year.

Winnipeg Pet Rescue has said that they may have an event next season, as Wheeler and Little had done one for them in the 2011/12 season.

The other place to see jets is down in the Exchange Restaurant after the games. Rick Ralph or Brian Munz will usually tweet out who they're going to have on the show that night so you can prepare accordingly. How many signatures are done is completely at the discretion of the player, and usually depends on their moods (after a loss it's pretty slim pickins). When the tweet comes out soon enough (and I remember) I try and chance the first post to reflect who will be there on a given night. They've also started asking to see tickets to get into the lounge right after games now, presumably to limit the randoms from showing up.

I'll keep doing my best to get everyone as much info on these events as I can.

Figures, the one and only time Ladd does a public signing where I wouldn't feel like an idiot for getting in front of a kid (not going to the Iceplex) I'm away on vacation.

Wish he would do more signings so I can get my jersey framed and put away once and for all. Rather wear an el cheapo replica than a $450 jersey to games.

according to @potvinj of CBC, Scheifele Clitsome and Wright will be the coaches for the Rockers team at the Juno Cup tonight. Not sure if that will equate to autographs, but who knows.

With the end of the season coming up, I suspect an email from Murray Chevrolet may come out on Friday, announcing an event next Wednesday. Just a hunch.

Hope so.

Thanks for the heads up!

So then....nothing?

Three signings this year prior to season's end - Frolik/Peluso back prior to the new year and Ladd at the RV show. That's it? I didn't think the interest had fallen that far, so what gives?

I heard Wheeler doing an ad this morning on 1290 - he's appearing at some show home open house (Gino's homes/Ledohowski) soon. Maybe someone else got the details...

That would be a good one, thanks for the post. I'll try and dig something up...

Special Guests? Does this mean the Blake Wheeler Dancers will be there too?

Thanks for posting the details.

FWIW it was only Wheeler and Enstrom yesterday. Smallish crowd maybe 100 people total. I swear the first ten people that got in early had ten items each to get signed
