The champions return

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The Explorer Hotel will once again be the site for one of the city's biggest fundraisers of the year.

The annual Champions For Children dinner is happening on Saturday night and will feature another line-up of former NHL players: Mike Krushelnyski, Georges Laraque, Andrew Ference and Louie Debrusk. They will talk about their lives in sport and answer questions from the audience in a Hot Stove-style session. There will also be a live auction with plenty of big items up for bids.

Time for futsal camp

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - It's time to start thinking about futsal again in Yellowknife.

The NWT Soccer Association is ramping up its regional futsal development camps around the NWT this week and the Yellowknife camp kicked off on Monday evening at St. Pat's Gymnasium. Last night's session was at Weledeh Gymnasium. Tonight's session returns to St. Pat's. Tomorrow and Friday will see the players return to Weledeh for the final sessions.

The camp was open to anyone born between 2001 and 2006 who wanted to attend but it was mandatory for those born between 2001 and 2004 who were looking to play at the 2017 North American Indigenous Games in Toronto next July.

Winners get their due

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Some lucky people from around the NWT will be recognized for the work they do or have done this evening.

One of the big parts of the NWT Recreation and Parks Association's annual conference is the awards ceremony, which will take place tonight at the Explorer Hotel beginning at 6 p.m.

Four honours will be handed out: Award of Excellence, Innovation, Active Elder and the Scott McAdam Youth Leadership Award. See the next edition of Yellowknifer for a recap of the show.
