Hello, Peak Readers – Powell River Peak

Photo report of the day, today in history, weather forecasts and local gas prices

Good Tuesday!

We dug through our archives for today’s photo, which was taken at the Powell River Recreation Complex 25 years ago today. The Hanson Brothers, from the 1977 film Slap shot, proved to be as popular in 1997 as they were when they first appeared in film. The classic characters, played by David Hanson and brothers Steve and Jeff Carlson, performed for the crowd during intermission at a Powell River Kings game. were you there?
