Posse sprint to Christmas break

Don’t miss the home games on Wednesday and Friday this week!

On the ice, the Posse begins a run of five home games and one long road trip before Christmas. Wednesday at 7 p.m. the Posse open with Osoyoos Coyotes, followed Friday the 29 with the only visit this season for the 100 Mile House Wranglers.

Posse fans have been entertained this season with a hardworking group. It would be a good time to see some of the breaks that have just not fallen their way… maybe fall in the Posse’s favor as a reward for the energy shown on the ice. And safe to say that a stretch of 10 games in four weekends would be a solid test to see if the team can put something together to maintain pressure on that last playoff spot.

Of note are the solid results on the score sheet again this season of Kurtis Klinger, the relentless pursuit of career scoring records that are looming soon by Eric Kubis, or the continued physical emergence of walk-on returnee, Eric Schmidt. The Posse invite everyone out Wednesday and again this Friday to enjoy a local evening of junior hockey loaded with entertainment.

Upcoming Events :

Wednesday 7 p.m. vs Osoyoos Coyotes.  Special Note –   Puck toss pot nearing the largest ever!

Friday 7 p.m. vs 100 Mile House – Posse Movember Night. All with a moustache have free entry. All proceeds from donation jar to Movember. Pre-game smokies begin at 6:15 p.m.

Saturday at 6 p.m., fundraising dinner at the Brown Bridge Pub. Tickets at the Wednesday and Friday games—there is talk of a moustache shaving auction.

Friday 7 p.m.,  Dec 7, host Castlegar. Posse Toque Toss Night— no more teddy bears please… But we need warmth!  Bring toques, socks, mitts or scarfs… to toss —all proceeds donated locally.
