Lacombe Generals Need Your Help To Get To National Championship


2 minute read

By Sheldon Spackman

The Lacombe Generals have launched a Go Fund Me Campaign to help pay for the cost of travelling to the Allan Cup in New Brunswick next week.  As Jeff McInnis explains, the team is a victim of it’s own success.  A string of provincial and regional championships means a massive travel bill at the end of every season.   The 2017 tournament runs from April 10th to 15th and the Generals are one of six teams competing in the annual event.  The Generals are Alberta Senior Men’s AAA hockey champs and earned the right to represent the Pacific Region in Boutouche, New Brunswick.

Although it’s been a successful season on the ice for the Generals after moving from Bentley to Lacombe last year, it’s still been a challenging one financially. A trip to the east coast comes at a high cost for the Generals and they’re looking to raise $10,000 or more with this campaign.

Team officials site the economic downturn and the loss of some key sponsors as factors that have led to this situation. The cost of flying a team of 28 players plus staff and gear to New Brunswick, as well as paying for meals and hotel rooms is roughly $2,000+ per round trip and does not include players equipment. It leaves the team in the hole by over $20,000.

Officials add “We are simply asking for any type of contribution that you can provide to help us get to Bouctouche, NB and be able to represent our town and Province to the best of our abilities.  We appreciate all of our fans and and sponsors that have stuck with us and stand by us.  We would not be able to be where we are without your support!”
