Though the 2013 Sundogs season won't start until October, there's no shortage of hockey fandom in Prescott Valley.

That affection is particularly evident along Glassford Hill Road near the corner of Highway 69, where Sundogs co-owner Brad Fain, Sundogs general manager Chris Presson, Sundogs team captain Jason Morgan and marketing and public relations director Lew Rees perched themselves high atop a scissor-lift.

Their goal? To sell 300 season tickets.

Cars honked and pedestrians slowed to watch as the four shouted via a bullhorn to those below, encouraging everyone to buy season tickets. Sundogs representatives were also on hand to assist with purchases.

Sundogs mascot Burnie paid a visit to the area and waved from the intersection.

Fain, Presson and Rees came up with the idea for the scissor-lift promotion - termed the "Whatever It Takes" campaign.

"We're trying to raise awareness for the upcoming season and get the support of the community," said Sundogs communications director Ashley Stovall. "We're looking to have 300 new season tickets purchased in the next few days, which will contribute to our overall goal of 1,000 new season tickets."

The scissor-lift crew has vowed not to come down until 300 season tickets are sold.

"They're going to eat up there, sleep up there and remain 30 feet high. Chris Presson is afraid of heights, so it's a little nerve-wracking up there for him right now."

Approximately 33 games are planned as part of the upcoming 2013-2014 season.
