The Terrace Whiskey Jack Archers have changed venues and are now meeting at the Thornhill Gym every Sunday from 1-4 p.m. Everyone is welcome to try out archery, and there are bows available for users to try before purchasing their own. Children under 12 need to be accompanied by an adult, and the club asks that everyone brings “inside shoes” to keep the floor clean. Become a member of the club for a lower weekly drop in fee. Member application forms at Misty River Tackle as of Nov. 4th and at the gym itself.
The Terrace River Kings are on the road this weekend, facing off against the Smithers Steelheads, before returning home for a double header the last weekend in November. On Saturday, Nov. 24 at 8 p.m., the Kings host Lac La Hache and on Sunday, Nov. 25 at 1 p.m. Williams Lake will take to the ice against the Kings. It’s the first and only chance to see either of these teams on Terrace turf, and the games boast prize draws, 50/50, shoot for loot, $4 beer in the beer garden, and fast-paced, hard-hitting live local hockey.
Minor Hockey officials are descending on Terrace for an officiating development weekend Nov. 17-18 that will see referees and official evaluators from around the northwest gather here. The mission is to “bring together young, up-and-coming officials from throughout the District to further their development in a semi-controlled environment.” This is done by having older officials work with younger officials, reffing games and helping young refs build confidence. They’ll be around the Sportsplex all weekend, so be sure to show them your support and appreciation for getting in the game.
