The 2015 VIJHL All Star Classic goes Sunday

The stars will be shining a little earlier than usual this Sunday.

The game will be preceded by a banquet at the Florence Filberg Centre. Doors open at 10 a.m. with banquet at 11 a.m. Everyone is welcome.

Tickets are $30 per person and must be reserved by today (Jan. 15). Contact Marsha at or by phone at 1-250-334-4709.

Five Glacier Kings and one former Yeti have been named to Team North. Goalie Blake Pearson, who the Icemen sent to the Westshore Wolves on trade deadline day (Jan. 10), is still eligible to play for Team North, according to VIJHL president Myles Parsons.
