“Nothing beats watching a rink full of impeccably dressed men and women skate up and down with scarves and ties flying through the wind.”
— Leslie Woods, Co-founder
And we agree!
Get your tuxes and feather headpieces ready—the WRG Classic: Gentlemen’s Hockey presented by lululemon is back for its 4th edition on Saturday, February 18th at Parc Ignace-Bourget! From 9am to 2pm, they’ll be bringing back the roaring 20s and bringing together some of Montreal’s top personalities to celebrate every Canadian’s favourite sport.
To kick off its 4th year, WRG has expanded its player pool to include Montreal influencers such as Patrick Langlois (TV Host), Jojo Flores (International DJ), Thierry Rassam (Founder of PoutineWeek MTL & BurgerWeek MTL), and Dustin Gilman (Blogger and TV personality).
Players and guests will embody the era’s explosion of fashion creativity by mixing and matching their best chapeaus, flapper dresses, bow ties, and suspenders, and you might even catch a few dancing off the cold with some Charleston moves.
And like in any good ol’ hockey game, warm food and beverages from a variety of local vendors will be available. If you’re not a huge fan of the cold, a heated lululemon Fan Jam will also help keep guests warm.
Here’s what to expect on game day:
*5 vs 5 full ice hockey games
*Three (3) games total (two (2) semi-finals and one (1) gold medal game)
*Final game to be followed by:
*Presentation of the trophy to the winning team
*Award for “The Impeccable Dresser”
*Gentlemanly Sportsmanship Award
Over 300 ladies and gents are expected to cheer on their favourite players, while celebrating the sport that runs through the veins of all Canadians…even those who’ve never touched a rink!
Don’t forget to dress up because anyone can win the award for “The Impeccable Dresser.” If you would like to attend, you can RSVP here: https://wrgclassic.splashthat.com/.
