Movember Skate

Kamloops, B.C. - On November 18th, take in some family fun with the Movember Skate Event at the McArthur Island Sports and Event Centre from 11:15 am to 1:00 pm. This is a free event, sponsored by Tim Hortons, TRU Wolfpack, Kamloops Storm and the City of Kamloops. Wear your best moustache and enter to win some great prizes! Face painting moustaches will also be available for those would like to have a moustache for the event. $2 donations will be gratefully accepted in support of prostate cancer and male mental health programs.

Don't forget that the City of Kamloops is promoting its 'Be Smart and Wear a Helmet' campaign for public skating. At random times throughout the fall and winter seasons, participants wearing helmets will be rewarded with a free skate pass.

Value Cards are now available for purchase at the Tournament Capital Centre, Westsyde Pool, Blazers Box office and during City of Kamloops skating programs. These passes allow users to buy four sessions and get one session free.
