Junior and Senior Non-Commissioned members of 1 Air Maintenance Squadron (1AMS) once again took to the ice for the annual Strawberry Cup.

The festivities were held inside the Colonel J.J. Parr Sports Centre on November 23rd. The Strawberry Cup is named for Corporal Michael “Strawberry” Nijeboer, a member of 1 AMS who was killed in a car accident in January 2008, at the age of 23. It has been held annually since.

The Junior members team took home the win this year, with a final score of 7 to 5.
