The Vernon Vipers are moving home ice.

An ice chiller issue at Kal Tire Place South has closed the arena, affecting this weekend’s set of games against Alberni Valley and Nanaimo.

Friday night’s game will now be scheduled for Sunday night at 7 p.m. against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs and be played at Kal Tire Place North.

Saturday night’s game will still go at 6 p.m. against Nanaimo, but will also be played at Kal Tire Place North.

“We are obviously disappointed in the situation we find ourselves in,” said executive vice president of the Vipers Todd Miller. “However, we do understand and appreciate this affects many other groups as well. We are working hard with everyone involved to help find a solution.”

Stay tuned for important information regarding ticket sales for those games.
