Kerrobert Memorial Arena
The Kerrobert Memorial Arena was very busy on the weekend of Nov. 12. We hosted a U15 tournament from Kindersley and many thanks were received from Kindersley Minor Hockey on our helpful and welcoming Kerrobert staff. The Tiger game against Wilkie did not bring a win however, the rink was full of people happy to be back to enjoy the new team. The Tiger team is always looking for volunteers to work the door, the 50/50’s and the Double Take Out Lounge, please call the Rec office if you are interested in getting involved.
Curling ice is currently going in thanks to the Kerrobert Curling Club and John and Darlene Gillies. They are anticipating that the ice will be in mid December.
