The start of 2009 has seen two game so far for our WFG Canada sponsored Clippers. The first one was a victory against the Powell River Kings on January 2. Nanaimo was able to hang on for a 3-2 win. Alas, the next day, the Clippers found the same score to be in favor of the Burnaby Express. Both of these games were played on the road for the Clippers. And while playing in other arenas offers a nice change of pace, it's really nice to be playing at home. In the Clippers's case, that's Frank Crane Arena.
So, for the second week of BCHL action in 2009, WFG's own Nanaimo Clippers (man, that is fun to type) return home for a game against the Cowichan Valley Capitals this Friday, January 9. And on January 11, the Clippers will be home again to take on Alberni Valley Bulldogs. All of a sudden, songs about valleys spring to mind. Oh, well. The Friday game starts at 7 PT while the Sunday game is a 3 PT matinee.
Saturday, though, won't be a rest day. The Clippers will travel to Alberni Valley to play the Bulldogs in their home arena. So this weekend will have three games on the docket before the All-Star break. And that game will be played next Wednesday in Vernon.
We at World Financial Group are excited to sponsor the Nanaimo Clippers. Go Clips!
