Hockey and Cricket in the same month? Unbelievable.

Roos Tryouts

It’s time to trade beaches and tan lines for ice and hockey equipment.

The ‘Roos are set to start tryouts towards the the end of the month.

The Kangaroos would like to see as many local players as are able to make the commitment for a season of hockey to make sure the team stays a team of Gold Pan residents, not shipped in talent, like they were last year.

Tryouts are currently scheduled for Aug. 20, 22, 27 and 29, 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.



There’s never been a better time to watch cricket in the Cariboo, because the Quesenl Cricket Club is playing this weekend.

The club is facing off against  the Kamloops Cricket Club this weekend, on Sunday at 9a.m.

The club would love to see a crowd out to enjoy this, rather rare in the Cariboo, sport and  take part in a sport that is famous around the world.
