Last December, the Strathmore RCMP and the Strathmore Fire Department announced the Battle of the Badges would take place early February in the new year.  The date draws near and it has been a wild ride getting to this point.

Cst. Denzil Morey, Media Relations Officer said, " A colleague of mine had mentioned a battle of the badges hockey tournament had been done in other areas and we should do one here.  As first responders, we just wanted a way to give back to the community and that is when we reached out to our friends at the Strathmore Fire Department."

There has been some playful razzing going on, that consists of some videos featuring both members of the Strathmore Fire Department and The Strathmore RCMP posted to the mutual Facebook page, Battle of the Badges Strathmore.

A number of the silent auction items are posted to the page for potential bidders to preview before game day.  The doors at the Strathmore Arena open at 5:45 pm, Sunday February 10, and the entry is based on a monetary donation, with all the contributions going to the HUB (formally the Strathmore Youth Club) and the Wheatland County Food Bank.
