Tickets limited for Flyers’ Sports Wall of Fame induction Nov. 16

Junior B hockey team a fixture at Fuller Lake Arena in the 1970s

The Fuller Lake Flyers Jr. B hockey team ruled the ice for a decade during the early years of Fuller Lake Arena.

The Flyers were a strong contender in the South Vancouver Island JuniorB Hockey League during many of those 10 years of operation before the franchise folded in 1980.

Mike Armstrong, a player in the inaugural campaigns, orchestrated a bid for the program to be included in the North Cowichan/Duncan Sports Wall of Fame that was successful.

The ceremony will take place Nov. 16 at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club in Duncan and a large presence of players who wore the Flyers’ uniform at one time or another during that period is expected.

Many Chemainus, Crofton and area players will be looking forward to a bit of a reunion at the function.

Tickets are now available, but the numbers are limited for the wine and cheese reception that will include four other inductees from the Cowichan Valley.

Persons who are interested in attending can contact Tammy Butler (250-746-3169) or send an email to tammy.butler@northcowichan.ca.
