KAMLOOPS - To commemorate 100 years of a sport that defines us as Canadians, Hockey Canada’s cross-country memorial tribute will be making a stop in Kamloops.
The century tour, which will make approximately 100 stops, is a 20,000 square foot interactive showcase of timelines with milestone moments, artifacts, a synthetic ice rink and is fun for all family members. Nike Canada has also launched an anniversary jersey in spirit of the celebration.
“We want to say thank you to all the fans, parents, referees and volunteers across the country who are involved in the game,” said Jim Hornell, chairman of the Hockey Canada Board of Directors. “Hockey means what it does to Canadians because we have amazing people involved in our sport. The (tour) is a way to say thank you and connect with all Canadians.”
The event will run from November 2 to November 9 at the Interior Savings Centre and will continue during the 4 Nations Cup event beginning November 4.
The official anniversary date is December 4, 2014.
