Provincials coming to Rimbey

Funding needed

Fundraising is ongoing for the Midget provincials coming to Rimbey in March.

Fundraising chairman Lora Bradshaw said a minimum of $15,000 is needed for Rimbey to host the provincials.

Fundraising began in December and about half the funding has been raised.

On Sat.,Feb. 3, the Nordstrom Dental Rimbey Midget Team played all of the minor hockey league coaches. This was one of the many fundraising events the team ran in hopes to reach the minimum amount needed to host Provincials in Rimbey on March 22-25.

If other people or businesses are hoping to sponsor this amazing event, please call Lora Bradshaw (403 704-5992) or manager Stacey Johnson (403 704-5899). We are grateful for the community uniting together to support youth in sports.

Midget hockey players aged 15 to 17 from eight zones will gather in Rimbey for the Provincial tourney.
