Hockey game was entertaining

The Okanagan ladies hockey team met the Kazakhstani ladies team in a very interesting match.

Dear Editor:

Although advertising for the event was very limited, I was still surprised at the lack of attendance last Saturday afternoon at the local arena when the Okanagan ladies hockey team met the Kazakhstani ladies team in a very interesting match.

I also wondered why no one was there to collect admission. It was well worth it.

The skating speed, passing finesse and goal-keeping was just as good as that of minor hockey boy’s teams.

The visitors were diminutive in size, as compared to our own players, but easily held their own.

My second comment pertains to the suggestion made by someone at the cultural meeting held two weeks ago.

A person in attendance suggested that Summerland could use a similar feature such as the Penticton’s Kitchen Stove movie series.

The Summerland Film Club shows movies and documentaries on one night a month.

The last documentary gave an insight into Alberta’s oil sands industry as well as the XL pipeline planned into the United States.

I doubt that very many locals would have been aware of the extent of this industry.

The October film feature will take you to Israel and the conflict between Palestine and Israel. This is definitely a foreign film, having been made in that country in the Hebrew and Arabic languages. The rest of us will make due with English subtitles.

The films will be shown at the Summerland Seniors’ Village the third Wednesday evening of every month, starting at 7 p.m. The next one is Oct. 16. Checksummerlandfilm.ca for future shows, location and dates.
