Calgary Flames Alumni Community Report

Tue, Dec 21st 2010, 00:00

The Flames NHL Alumni is comprised of 120 NHL veterans who have made Calgary their home. Players who wore the Flaming C account for 34 of these men with 8 members of the Flames Stanley Cup Championship team included in the aforementioned numbers. The Alumni began in 1993 when Flames President Bill Hay approached Lanny McDonald and Jim Peplinski about building the history of our organization through the formation of the Alumni. Since 1993, the Alumni has been proud to participate in hundreds of events supporting many high profile causes and in some cases the more gratifying countless levels of participation in everything from school visits, to charity games in small towns, to birthday partys to chatting with the true Veterans of the great Wars at the Colonel Belcher. We are proud to participate in any event with the only limitations being the requirement of one of our members to champion the event as a liaison on behalf of the Alumni and the members having the time between work and family to assist the cause. Although our participation in events over a year raises hundreds of thousands of dollars, some of our most enjoyable times occur when we play pick up games between ourselves from October to March. Its a great day for hockey. Please direct your inquires to www.FlamesAlumni.com, email Jim directly at jpeplinski@calgaryflames.com or call Vickie Rinkie at 403 777 1385
