The Arviat Wolves will be returning to defend their championship title when the Bantam Rock hockey championship gets underway in Rankin Inlet from March 1 to 3.
The Rankin tournament will be an excellent warmup for the Nunavut Bantam Territorial Championship, which will be held in Arviat from March 15 to 17.
Arvist is the next stop on the first leg of the 2019 Northern screening tour of the feature presentation, The Grizzlies.
The screening of the film, based on a true story, in Arviat is free of charge and gets underway at 7:30 p.m. tonight, Feb. 20, at the Mark Kalluak Community Hall.
The special hosts for the evening, Ian G. Speirs and Vinnie Karetak, will hold a question-and-answer session with the audience immediately following the screening.
The feature presentation was screened in Rankin Inlet the previous evening.
The Grizzlies will open in theatres nationwide on April 19.
