"We just started off by wanting to do something for the 50th Anniversary of the Dauphin Kings," said Jordan Pernarowski. "One of the main organizers for the Alumni games. Last summer we had a golf tournament that really got the ball rolling, and then from there because it's the 50th year, we want to get as many Alumni together as we can. We want to kick off the year with this event, and I think this is something that needed to happen."
The Alumni games kick off a day full of action with the schedule as followed:
2:00-3:15 p.m. - Old Dogs Game (35 & Over) Team Parkland Source for Sports vs Team Pernarowski Accounting
3:15-3:30 p.m. - Group Picture
3:30-5:00 p.m. - Young Guns Game (34 & Under) Team Love and Persson vs Team Gilbert Plains Country Club
7:30 p.m. - Dauphin Kings Home Opener
9:00-1:00 a.m. - Social in the Curling Rink.
The Alumni games are totally free to watch," said Pernarowski. "The Kings will be running their 50/50 right from the beginning of the Alumni games until their game at 7:30. The day will be a lot of fun."
The games will feature dozens of ex-Dauphin Kings including Pernarowski, Marlin Murray, Wade Houle, Bill Murray, Brian Hlady and several other fan favourites.
"There will be a lot of players that played in the past that people loved to watch," said Pernarowski. "We will also be unveiling some new jerseys during the games, so we will be looking pretty sharp."
All the action takes place on Saturday, September, 23 at Credit Union Place.
