Humboldt Minor Hockey hosting tailgating party to thank public for support

A day packed to the brim with hockey-related events is being organized to pay tribute to the younger players of the sport.

“We host minor hockey day every year as an appreciation for our players and families,” said Jamie Fleischhacker with Humboldt Minor Hockey. “[It’s] just a fun event for families and the kids associated with minor hockey.”

The day, held Jan. 26, begins at 8 am with a series of skills workshops for atom, novice, bantam peewee and midget filly players both on ice and on dry land lead by an instructor from the Saskatchewan Hockey Association.

At 1:15 pm, the peewee AAs will play a game, followed by the midget AAs at 3:15 pm.

Then, starting at 4:30 pm, something new will happen.

“Later in the afternoon, we’re actually hosting a tailgating party before the Bronco game,” Fleischhacker said. “We’re doing a big bonfire and having hot dogs for the community who would be interested in coming out.”

The organizer said they’re holding the tailgating party because they wanted to do something new and thank people for supporting them after a difficult year last year.

At the 7:30 pm Junior A Humboldt Broncos home game against Notre Dame, there will be a puck toss.
