It was soggy greens instead of clear ice for the Prince Rupert Rampage on Saturday.

It was soggy greens instead of clear ice for the Prince Rupert Rampage on Saturday.

In between raindrops, the senior men’s hockey team hosted their fifth annual Rupert Rampage Charity Golf Scramble to give back to their fans and the city and provide funding for four causes: the Prince Rupert Wildlife Shelter, the Kyle Flaten Fund, Civic Pride and the BCSPCA.

“It shows our support for the community. They support us and it’s just a sense of gratification,” said organizing member and ex-forward Dan Wright.

Flaten passed away last year and the team has been raising funds ever since to support the memorial fund, which helps under-privileged children play hockey.

“Most of [the team] is here except for the few that are out of town or have to work,” said Wright.

Prince Rupert businesses donated prizes as part of the awards dinner as well as salmon and crab for dinner.

“We’ve got guys from out of town and a lot of local businesses that will sponsor and then come play … we’re looking to raise a lot of money again.”

Approximately 112 golfers on 28 teams took part in the scramble. The Rampage raised $17,000 in various charitable donations during last year’s scramble.
