Roses for Valentines day:

Guns N Hoses hockey game:

The annual Guns n Hoses hockey game was held on February 10th at the Tamitik Arena. The game is organized by KidSport Kitimat, Kitimat RCMP and Kitimat Fire and Rescue. The guns players were made up of RCMP, Conservation and Department of Fisheries officers as well as civilians that were given special agent status for the evening. Team Hoses was firefighters from Kitimat and surrounding communities. The opening ceremonies included a moment of silence for members of the emergency services family that lost their lives over the past year and the singing of the national anthem by RCMP Constable Jenny Muckle donning her iconic Red Serge uniform. The team mascots, Sparky and Safety bear, then had a skating race around the arena. The youthful legs of Sparky proved to be to much for Safety Bear, who had just woken up from hibernation for this game and seemed to be a bit slower to get going. The game was very spirited with the guns pulling out a 7-4 victory. This is only the second game since COVID and the Hoses had last years win, so the series is now tied 1-1. Kidsport Kitimat will be releasing the results of the fundraising at a future date. The Kitimat RCMP would like to thank the organizers, all the sponsors and businesses for making this such a special event. Of course, this event would not have been nearly as successful without the donations from all the spectators that came out to enjoy the game and evenings events.
