The Sicamous performance of the RCMP musical ride tour which is scheduled for 6 p.m. on July 17 was supposed to take place on the field at Eagle River Secondary, but due to field conditions it will be relocated to the Sicamous Dog Park.
Sheila Devost, the executive director of the Sicamous Chamber of Commerce, who have been handling ticket sales for the event, said a recent inspection of the field at the High School she made along with Sgt. Murray McNeil of the Sicamous RCMP and District of Sicamous operations manger Joe McCullough showed several holes in the field as well as patches of soft earth which could pose a threat to the musical ride horses. She said she believes recent heavy rains caused the indentations in the field.
Although the dog park is not as centrally located as the high school Devost said there is enough space for parking. She said the organizers of the Stomp have been very accommodating in delaying their setup at the dog park to allow the ride to go ahead
Ticket sales for the performances in Sicamous and Salmon Arm have been going quickly. According to Patrick Webb a member of the rotary club of Salmon Arm who is helping organize ticket sales, over 2000 tickets had been sold for the two performances in Salmon Arm on July 16 and the Sicamous perfrormance.
Before the Sicamous show Shuswap Pipes and Drums will be joining forces with the Kalamalka Highlanders pipe band to perform as an opening act.
Tickets are available at all Askews Foods locations and online through the Salmar Theatres’ ticket services. The Sicamous Chamber of Commerce are selling tickets for the Sicamous performance.
