The La Ronge Ice Wolves continue to carry on during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The team recently announced that season tickets are now on sale for the 2020-21 campaign.
“We waited until we had some idea that things were gonna go ahead,” said Randy Johns, who is a board member with the team. “The indications that we’re getting so far is that there will be a season. We haven’t got a definite start date yet, but there’s some speculation it could be sometime in September.”
If the COVID-19 pandemic persists, one idea that has been thrown around is limiting the amount of people allowed to come and watch junior hockey games.
“Season ticket holders would get priority for the seats,” said Johns. “Our capacity is about 1,000 or 1,100 and if it was half capacity, the first 500 seats would go to season ticket holders. That’s a priority that season ticket holders get and I think it’s an incentive to pick up your season tickets.”
Meantime, the Ice Wolves will host their annual general meeting July 13 at 7 p.m. in the Mel Hegland Uniplex parking lot.
The meeting is open to the public and the team says if you plan to attend, you should bring your own chair.
