Trail Minor Hockey Day

Folks from all around Greater Trail descended on the Memorial Centre in Trail to take part in the annual Minor Hockey Day Saturday.



Players, parents, and fans from around the Greater Trail area descended on the Memorial Centre in Trail to take part in the annual Minor Hockey Day Saturday.

For many the day started off with a hearty breakfast of pancakes and sausages in the gym at the Local 480 Pancake Breakfast, where volunteers from the Steelworkers cooked up 70 pounds of sausage, 60 pounds of pancake mix, and served 48 litres of juice, and gallons of coffee for the parents throughout the morning.

Games went on all day in the Cominco Arena culminating with a between period scrimmage by two of the minor hockey teams at Saturday evening’s Smokies game against Penticton.
