Lloydminster RCMP and Firefighters Prepare for 
2018 Battle of the Badges

LLOYDMINSTER, AB/SK - The Lloydminster Fire Department and the Lloydminster RCMP are renewing an old rivalry in advance the 2018 Battle of the Badges Todd Gustavson Memorial Hockey Tournament.

The puck drops on the annual exhibition at the Centennial Civic Centre Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 2 p.m. With one month until the big game, both sides have been scouting players and reviewing x’s and o’s, while supporting ticket sales for the popular community fundraiser.

“This year, more than ever, the Fire Department is prepared to combat the RCMP’s chippy play with our team speed,” said Fire Chief Jordan Newton. “We look forward to another entertaining game for the community. I just hope the RCMP recognize there are no scouts in the stands, and if there were, they’d be looking at us.”

All proceeds will support KidSport Lloydminster and the Lloydminster Public School Division Breakfast Program.

“True to RCMP tradition, we take pride in playing hard within the rules,” said Inspector Neal Pearson. “Each year is a great opportunity play a clean, fun game while raising money for some worthy causes. As always, we gave the trophy a polish so it will look sharp when we hoist it...again.”

Battle of the Badges tickets can be purchased at the Lloydminster RCMP Detachment (5106 44 Street), or City Hall (4420 50 Avenue) starting Feb. 7.

  •      Individual tickets - $10
  •      Four-person family passes - $25
  •      Children eight and under - Free

Sponsors for the 2018 Todd Gustavson Memorial Hockey Tournament include:

  •      Synergy Credit Union
  •      Musgrave Agencies
  •    Redhead Equipment
  •    ATCO Electric
