Get a huge plate of pancakes and support minor lacrosse and the Armstrong Lions Club at the same time.
That’s the idea behind the Lions pancake breakfast Saturday morning (9:30) at Hassen Arena in Armstrong.
“We invite anyone and everyone looking for a great start to their day to stop by and have a bite to eat,” said Harold Mann of minor lacrosse.
“The Lions Club has been a great supporter of the association over the years with the proceeds going back to the North Okanagan Minor Lacrosse Association.”
Picture day for lacrosse follows the breakfast which features pancakes and coffee or hot chocolate for $4 or a ham ‘n egger with a beverage for $3.
“We figure a good, warm breakfast will bring a smile to the players for team pictures,” said Mann.
Meanwhile, the sixth annual Archie Jack Memorial Ice Breaker Junior Lacrosse Tournament goes Saturday at the Nor-Val Sports Centre.
There will be six 90-minute games played with the Vernon Re/Max Tigers facing the Armstrong Shamrocks in the 9 a.m. opener.
The Kamloops Rattlers battle the Kelowna Raiders at 10:30 a.m., followed by a noon encounter between the Kamloops Venom and the South Okanagan Flames.
Kelowna takes on Vernon at 2 p.m., South Okanagan tangles with the Rattlers at 3:30 and the Shamrocks play the Venom at 5 p.m.
