Atom squad to skate outdoors with Rockets

The Legends atom team will skate with some of the Kelowna Rockets on the #5 hole pond at the Black Mountain Golf Course.

This fun-filled event for kids is the result of a collaborative effort between Melcor’s Black Mountain development, the Kelowna Rockets and Kelowna Minor Hockey Association.

The atom division teams of KMH were challenged to produce a poster depicting their team skating with the Rockets. The winning entry was submitted by the atom development league Legends team, to skate outdoors with some of the Rockets on the #5 hole pond at the Black Mountain Golf Course, from noon to 2 p.m., in what is being called the inaugural Winter Classic.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for our young players to get to spend the day in the fresh air on ice with their idols from the WHL Kelowna Rockets,” said Toby McNeil, with Melcor Developments Ltd.

The public is invited to come out and watch, hang out around a fire, and enjoy a hot dog and cup of hot chocolate. The Winter Classic will take place from noon to 2 p.m. The golf course is located on Black Mountain Drive, north of Highway 33.
