Nelson pee wees fill sandbags

The fundraiser to help them attend provincials in March.

Hockey players from the Nelson pee wee rep Tier 2 team got some extra cross training as they spent Sunday filling 800 sandbags as a fundraiser to help them attend provincials in March. Kids on the team are from Nelson, Castlegar, and Kaslo.

The location of the provincials is yet to be determined, however it will be up north, likely in the Yukon. Sandbags have been pre-sold to businesses in Nelson, Castlegar, Winlaw and Kaslo. Without this support, these boys would not be able to attend provincials.

Pictured are Joe Davidson, Ethan Bennett, Seamus Boyd, Joseph Surina, Amran Bhabra, Rhett Hamilton, Lowie Vreys, Noah Quinn, Tijs Vreys, Bryce Sookro, Jackson Harris, Ethan Lawczynski, Nick Francis, and Dylan Mowery, and in front, Drake Proctor, and Kaleb Percival.
