Williams Lake Stampeders go head to head with the Stamps Alumni Team this Saturday

Some of the lakecity’s finest hockey players will be testing their skills against each other

The Williams Lake Stampeders are gearing up for what they are billing as a clash of legends on Saturday, Jan, 4 at 8 p.m. as they prepare to take on the Stamps Alumni Team.

A beloved Williams Lake icon, the Stamps have had many players come and go over the years making their mark on hometown ice before leaving so the next generation can take up the banner. To kick off 2020, however, these veterans are returning to the ice to test the mettle of the current iteration of the Stamps.

The puck drops on this exciting matchup at 8 p.m. at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex with tickets priced at $10 for adults, $8 for seniors/students and kids eight and under getting in for free. This charity game will be supporting the local Society of St Vincent de Paul and the work they do in the lakecity community.
