The teams, having paid their $825 each for the honour, are lining up for the Unity Cup at Fuller Lake Arena March 26 and 27.

The defending Ice Hogs will be first on the ice against the Kings at 8 a.m., an appropriate start, although the line-up was determined by team names drawn out of a hat.

After that battle, the round-robin  match-ups will continue between the Chiefs and the Talons, 9:30 a.m.; Cougars and Believers, 11 a.m.; Kings and Chiefs 12:30 p.m.; Ice Hogs and Cougars, 2 p.m.; Talons and Believers, 3:30 p.m.; Kings and Cougars, 5 p.m.; Ice Hogs and Talons, 6:30 p.m.; Chiefs and Believers, 8 p.m.

On Sunday the playoff rounds will get underway with games scheduled from 1 to 7 p.m. at hour-and-a-half intervals.

The last game is scheduled to end at 8:15 p.m., and it’s a pretty safe bet that the players will be leaving it all on the ice.

The Unity Cup is traditionally the last event of the year at Fuller Lake before the ice comes off.
