The Woodstock Slammers announced today in a press release that they are moving their Wednesday, Jan. 27, home game against the Campbellton Tigers from the Carleton Civic Centre in Woodstock to the E & P Sénéchal Centre in Grand Falls. Game time is 7:30 pm.
This move is being made to accommodate the funeral arrangements for the late RCMP Sgt. Mark Gallagher.
In the release, the Slammers organization wished to send the organization's condolences to the family of Sgt. Gallagher. All Woodstock Slammers season ticket holders will see their tickets honored in Grand Falls. For those season ticket holders who cannot make the trip to Grand Falls, the Slammers organization will provide the opportunity to have those tickets exchanged for a credit towards next year’s season ticket purchase. Please retain your tickets.
In the release, the Slammers also expressed excitement for the opportunity to play in the beautiful new Grand Falls arena. Well known as a great hockey town, the Slammers stated that they were looking forward to introducing Junior A hockey to the many fans in the Grand Falls area.
This will also be a special night for Nicholas Cyr, a Grand Falls native and the leading scorer for the Campbellton Tiger (11 goals, 13 assists).
The Slammers also wish to express thanks to the Town of Grand Falls for the interest and help in accommodating us in this difficult circumstance.
