The Cape Breton West Islanders Major Midget Hockey Club will be holding a ‘Send off Rally’ event at the Antigonish Arena on Thursday, April 20, from 7 to 8 p.m.
Hockey fans of all ages are encouraged to come out and show their support for the team before the Islanders head to Prince George, B.C., to compete in the Telus Cup, April 24 to 30.
For the serious hockey fan, the Islanders will be practicing from 5 to 6:30 p.m., and for the younger fans, there will be shoot-out starting at 6:30 p.m.
Scottie O from 101.5 The Hawk will be guest host of the rally. Whoot! Whoot!
Young hockey fans – please wear your minor hockey jersey or, if you’re older, wear your favorite NHL team jersey.
The Islander players will be available to the fans for autographs and pictures. They will be officially introduced and there will be dignitaries at the rally who will be offering their best wishes to the team.
The Islanders will also have a banner, which will be going to B.C. with them, for all their supporters to sign.
For those fans or businesses still wanting to make a contribution to the team, there will be a donation box set up at the rally. If you live in the Port Hood area you can drop by the Ceilidh to see team treasurer Len Tobey or call him at 902-787- 2666!
