The Chase Heat got carried away with avian stuff this past long weekend.

On Friday, Oct. 7, at the local Ice Palace they started by serving a turkey to local fans.

The Summerland Steam paid a visit and for two periods were sitting ducks. Chase got the lone goal in the 1st, Zachary Fournier from Grady Musgrave and Kaden Black.

In the second, the Heat kept fans flapping their wings as Black plopped the giblet into the pot, assisted by Fournier and Spencer Farstad.

The third saw the Steam blow the Heat out of the sky with five unanswered goals, Josh Pilon, Cole Williams, Scott Robinson, Everett Scherger and Braden Eliuk, to claim a 5-2 victory from the locals who laid an egg.

Saturday night, the 8th, the Heat  migrated to Sicamous to take on the Eagles on Shea Weber Drive.

Kolten Moore in the 1st got things started, assisted by Spencer Meyer and Michael Fidanza. In the second, the Heat did their best impression of the opposition from the previous evening, scoring five unanswered goals.  Fournier from Farstad and Black, followed by Black on the power play from Fournier and Sunil Sahota.

Michael Howlett got one from Josh Bourne and Fidanza, Meyer from Nolan Parr and Pat Brady, and then Black with his second from Farstad and Fournier.

In the third, the Eagles attempted to soar, scoring a pair from Ethan Trampuh and Tyler Collens, before Bourne for Chase, assisted by Brady, scored a highlight reel tally. The end result was a 7-2 road kill for the Heat.

Sunday the 9th saw the annual Heat Family Weekend Birdie, Eagle and #18 Nolan “Bogey” Parr Golf Tournament at rain soaked Sunshore Golf Course.

Nine holes of worm hunting destroyed the links as the flappers and hackers whacked their ways to the clubhouse.

At the end, as the sun went down and everyone roosted, a succulent turkey or two plus all the trimmings was served to the congregated flock.

Bird Brains: The Heat are on the road next weekend versus the Coyotes in Osoyoos and the Posse in Princeton.

Next home game on the 22nd versus the Grizzlies from Revelstoke.
