Dynamiters will play home game in Cranbrook

Memorial Arena will host game due to scheduling conflict

Kimberley Dynamiters

It’s not something that happens very often, but the Kimberley Dynamiters will play their Friday, January 6, 2017 home game against the Beaver Valley Night Hawks in another town. The game will take place in the friendly confines of Memorial Arena in Cranbrook.

“There was a discrepancy in ice booking,” said club president James Leroux. “There was an oversight on someone’s part and it turns out a seniors tournament has been booked that weekend.

“Our regularly scheduled game runs into the tournament. So we’re in Cranbrook.”

Leroux said the Memorial Arena will provide a good atmosphere for the Nitros game, which are known to be loud, intense affairs.

“It’s a smaller rink, with a better atmosphere. I think it will be just great.

“And it gives our Cranbrook fans a chance to come out. We do have about 60 or 70 Cranbrook fans who support us. Hopefully they’ll grab some of their friends and come out and support us.”

Leroux says there are no plans at present to have a fan bus from Kimberley.

“I think everyone will car pool as much as they can. Everyone’s made arrangements to hop in with someone else.”

The Dynamiters have all the permits in place to serve beer and a minimal menu will be offered from the canteen.
