Indigenous youth hockey camp postponed

The two-day Indigenous youth hockey camp and charity game that was set to take place in Fort St. John this weekend, March 28 and 29, has been postponed. 

"As the coronavirus (COVID-19) impact continues to unfold, we recognize that these are challenging times, we can all do our part, we can make a positive impact," said event organizer Jon Armbruster in an email.

"Due to the rapidly evolving situation, we are forced to adjust as things progress and have decided to postpone the March 28 and 29 NorthEast B.C. Indigenous hockey clinic & charity game in Fort St John."

Armbruster said the jerseys, hoodies and other items for the kids will be held in storage until the event is able to go ahead, and that "every cent donated will go toward the upcoming camp."

Armbruster is hoping to be able to hold the camp in late-August or early-September instead. 

"We believe that we are in this together. And in that same spirit, we will get through this together," said Armbruster.
