Pre-season ends with a loss to the 100 Mile House Wranglers and a win over the Grand Forks Border Bruins.

Weekend Wrap up

After hosting 2 exhibition games on the weekend, the season is officially on! While Saturday provided many entertaining moments with flashes of promise, the scoreboard ended with the Posse down by a touchdown vs 100 Mile House Wranglers. Sunday’s result was better with the good guys edging Grand Forks Border Bruins.

Arena Vibrating with Energy

The bigger story was the feel inside the arena.

The crowd was energetic. The stands were almost full. The comments and feedback were more than encouraging. Princeton always has been a hockey town, but more important, the community appears ready to walk the walk again. With a few more regulars dressed for the Grand Forks game, the surprisingly strong Sunday turnout was loud and appreciative of the effort.

Season Opener Friday – Tailgate Parties starts 5:15

Festivities kick off Friday outside the arena with live blues courtesy of the Kettle Valley Switchmen. Fans are invited to come early to tailgate in the outside beer garden and enjoy a Steak and Prawn fundraising dinner served courtesy of Billy’s. Fans and entertainment move inside for puck drop at 7 p.m.

Saturday evening will see another pregame tailgate only the bar-b-ques will be serving up smokies courtesy of Coopers foods.

Game Day Volunteers Needed

In desire to provide first class entertainment every home game, the Posse is urgently seeking game day assistance. Tasks include assisting with ticket sales, kiosk sales, 50/50, outside prep and tear down, and game production duties – video, music, gun shooting, etc. Sounds like a lot, but many hands make light work, and most duties can be shared so that nothing is burdensome. In the end, everyone is there as a fan first. Volunteers are asked to give their name at ticket booth or kiosk during games.

Trainers Needed

The team is still in need of trainers.

Overall, the team is stoked about the impending season. Fan support is what makes everything worthwhile, and the positive feeling was infectious over the weekend. Yes there is much work to do but only because expectations have been set high. All it takes is a few more willing hands.
