It will be a family affair for the Golden Rockets on the weekend of Nov. 16-18 as the team celebrates the annual family weekend.

The Rockets will play on the Friday and Saturday night against Summerland and Nelson but much more will be happening both on and off the ice.

Nancy Dupuis, Treasurer of the Golden Rockets, is one of the staff helping to organize the event.

“There will be activities we will be doing with the parents in Golden. On Friday night we will be spending time after the game with the parents at the arena,” she said.

“On Saturday there will be a family skate with our parents, billets, volunteers and players from 11 a.m. until noon.”

The team will also be hosting an auction dinner with the items on display at the Rockets Game against Nelson on Nov. 17.

“The auction continues on at the arena during the game. It will run until the end of the game,” Dupuis said.

She added that the auction items are donated by the parents of the players.

“There could be anything in this auction. Anybody during the game can place a bid,” she said.

The team will end off the weekend with a morning of bowling at Down Memory Lanes.

“We are going to go bowling and have some fun because Sunday will be a relaxing day for us all,” she said.
