STANLEY PARK—The Rowers will play James Bay and the Scribes March 29 as part of the annual Spring Family Day at Brockton Oval. The matches are the club’s last three home games of the regular season (the squads still have road games April 5 and 12). A bouncy castle is to be set up for the kids, there will be a Red Bull booth, and there will be some other events and activities. The club will also be hosting its 2013-2014 sponsors to show them the Club’s appreciation for their generosity.

The Rowing Club’s premier side (5-6) are coming off a big win and face a James Bay squad (7-4) they lost to in November 29-8.

The first division (4-7) faces a team they beat 31-10 in November in Victoria. James Bay’s first div squad (6-5) is currently in the fourth playoff spot, while the fifth-place Rowers will need a win to stay in the playoff hunt.

The thirsty thirds are still in the playoff hunt, but will need to secure a win versus the Scribes to keep up their hopes for post-season play.

Game times are:
11:30 a.m. 3rds vs. Scribes
1 p.m. 1sts vs. James Bay AA
2:45 p.m. Premiers vs. James Bay AA

One of B.C.’s original craft breweries, Okanagan Spring Brewery was founded by Buko von Krosigk and Jakob Tobler: two men determined to offer an alternative to the mainstream beers of the region.

Where better to pursue this endeavour than in a region marked by natural beauty and a history of fine brewing? Established in 1985 and continuing to brew from the same location today, the Okanagan Spring Brewery resides in the heart of B.C.’s treasured Okanagan Valley. Surrounded by B.C.’s Interior Mountains and situated among the beautiful Kalamalka and Okanagan Lakes, it’s the perfect place to brew B.C.’s favourite beers.

On December 31, 1985, the first Okanagan Spring Premium Lager was poured. Buko and Jakob didn’t realize the role that Okanagan Spring would play in popularizing craft brewing, but they did know they’d created a mighty tasty beer.
