The Central Alberta Buccaneers football club is inviting the community to an information session this month, to spread awareness of the team and hopefully recruit some fresh faces.

The Bucs will be meeting on March 24th, at 7 p.m. at Red Deer College.

“We’re going to let potential players know what our training and play schedules are like, what events we do in the community and a little bit of background on the team,” explained the team’s General Manager Markus Fay.

“We want to let people know where we come from, where we’ve been, how the team was created and a little bit of our playing history. Then, we want to give them some information on what we do in the community, as well.”

The information session is open to men in the community who are wishing to play competitive football over the spring and summer months.

“It is our hope that in spreading the word of this event, we will attract more talent and create intrigue within the community,” a press release stated.

In addition to the information session, the annual ‘Bucs Pub Night’ will take place on March 31st at Bo’s Bar and Grill in Red Deer at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the event are $20, and they include a pint of beer and an appetizer buffet.

The Pub Night is a fundraising night for the non-profit group, and helps them to maintain their service levels, compete in tournaments, pay for field time and other league-associated costs.

There will be a silent auction, door prizes and raffles to help raise funds for the worthy cause.

For more information on either the information session, or to secure a ticket to the Pub Night, email cabucs.generalmanager@gmail.com or message the group using their facebook page, The Central Alberta Buccaneers.
