PRINCE GEORGE, BC- The Community of McBride, BC, with the support of the Prince George Cougars through a combination of merchandise, game tickets, and a cash donation, are pleased to announce they will be hosting a “Blue Hockey Day” in McBride on Sunday February 19th.

The four hour hockey extravaganza will see all minor hockey players, coaches, officials, junior, senior, male and female players, fans, and community members come together to help McBride compete for the top honour… Kraft 2006 Hockeyville Champions.

Upon completion of the hockey event, supporters are invited to stick around for a free family public skating event where there will be prizes, hot chocolate, and an arena full of BLUE fans and community spirit.

Thanks for the post Number 4....I've been working night shift lately and haven't had a bunch of time to get online much lately. It also gets frusterating when it seems I'm about the only one from PG that comes on here to post, other than Cougar Guy and Homer once in a blue moon. I guess I just have to be more dilligent on getting more stuff posted.

Hey dont worry bout it, Sput. I have this week off (Reading week at University) so I have a bit more time on my hands. And updating some of the team forums is way more interesting than the papers I have to write!
