A rematch for the ages! This fundraising hockey game will once again pit the Esprit de Corps' Commandos (captained by Scott Taylor) against the General Officers and Flag Officer (GOFOs, captained by the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Tom Lawson).

Proceeds from the game will be donated to the Military Family Resource Centre and this year's Army Run charities: Soldier On & the Military Families Fund.

Despite Gen. Lawson's vow that the GOFOs will come out as the top team this time (the Commandos took the last match 5:1) the real goal of the game is to raise a charitable donation in excess of $20,000 from ticket sales and corporate sponsorship.

Tickets for the game are $10 and can be purchased at the door. The game will run from 14:00-16:00 with a VIP reception to follow and will take place at the University of Ottawa arena (801 King Edward Ave), rink 1.

Come out and watch the media vs. the military brass go head-to-head, while supporting Canadian troops, veterans, and their families!
