The unofficial start of the season is now only twelve days away, with the Smoke Eaters' two-day rookie camp set to get underway at the Cominco Arena the morning of August 22nd. The Smokies continue to have openings available for prospects interested in taking part at a cost of $150 (download a registration form here).
For those players who are already signed up, check-in time has been set for 10:00 on the morning of the 22nd in the arena lobby, with ice-times to follow. The Smoke Eaters main camp will begin the morning of August 24th and run through Sunday, August 26th.
EDIT: I've now been told openings at Trail's rookie camp are for SKATERS only, all goaltending positions are full.
Programming Note: I can now confirm all four Smoke Eaters exhibition games (in addition to all 56 home and away regular-season games and any playoffs) will be on our Ustream channel, beginning August 28th in Chase against the Prince George Spruce Kings. Special thanks to the KIJHL's Chase Heat for hosting us and PG for the two-game set later this month and allowing me the use of their booth.
