YORKTON - If you are missing local hockey action, the Yorkton Junior Terriers have something planned that just might fill the void.
The club will host the inaugural version of what they hope becomes an annual fundraiser, a 4-on-4 ball hockey tournament.
The event, which will feature teams with four players and a goaltender in the ‘rink’ will be held the evening of Aug. 19 and then all day Aug. 20, explained Grayson Neufeld the Director of Marketing and Public Relations with the Terriers.
The event will be played on two outdoor rinks in the Gallagher Centre parking lot, with a third floor in the curling rink.
There is space for 16 teams, said Neufeld, with an entry fee of $400. The fee includes 10 tickets to the cabaret scheduled for Saturday with the music of Odd Man Out.
Fifty per cent of the entry fee, or half of $6,400 if they have 16 teams, will be paid out in prize money, said Neufeld, adding the other 50 per cent is fundraising for the team.
For teams wishing to register they can find forms online at www.yorktonterriers.com/ballhockey
For those wanting to watch the action refreshments and food will be available on-site.
