Varsity Teams Back EarlyWhile the majority of cadets were not due back to the college until the past weekend for the start-up of classes this past Monday, RMC varsity athletes were busy applying their skills at various locations across the country, over the holidays – highlighted by a year end trip to Calgary by the hockey team.
The hockey Paladins beat SAIT 4-3 in OT in their second game after being blown out 12-1 by the same team in the opener. In addition to hockey, the RMC team was exposed to Calgary hospitality. The RMC Club, Calgary Branch made arrangements for players and coaches to watch the Flames and the current Stanley Cup champs, Aneheim Ducks from a “Box” at the Saddledome – won by the Flames 5-3.
A good turnout by Ex cadets and friends at the Calgary Branch Christmas reception between games provided a social balance for the trip. Feedback from the RMC visitors was nothing but positive and highly appreciative for the effort put forth by their Calgary hosts.
It should be mentioned that the RMC Club / Foundation covered the travel expenses to Calgary for the hockey trip.
