For those looking to redden their cheeks a little while watching a stylish game of our nation sport, this weekend WRG magazine is hosting its 4th annual WRG Classic.
Inspired by early 20’s fashion, the friendly series of games is played on an outdoor rink and its players are spiffed up in their finest bow ties, bowler hats and sequin sweaters to work up a sweat while beating around the puck with classic Sher-Wood 5030 wooden sticks.
Onlookers will be able to enjoy hot food and beverages supplied from a host of vendors, there will be complimentary skate sharpening, a free skate after the final game and a Lululemon Fam Jam heated center so we don’t freeze ourselves while watching the games.
A few familiar faces such as Patrick Langlois (TV host), Thierry Rassam (co-founder of Burger Week), Jojo Flores (DJ) and Dustin Gilman (Blogger and TV personality) among others will be playing their best games in hopes of winning the final match.
