Signups are now open for a special 11AM Saturday morning session of Sperry hockey, July 13, 2013, at SkateNation Plus in Short Pump. If you took an email holiday during the long Independence Day holiday, you might have missed the signup message, so check your inbox! The roster is already starting to fill up, so please signup early to guarantee your slot. This will probably be the last travel game before Charlottesville’s Main Street Arena rink re-opens in August.
Sperry Hockey, July 13, 2013
The game is scheduled for late Saturday morning, July 13, 2013. We start at 11 AM (11:10 to be exact) and play for 80 minutes (until 12:30 PM). Game format and cost are still to be determined, but figure $20-25/person for the extended session. Goalies play for free, as usual.
Gazing into David’s crystal ball, I see hazy images of people changing on the fly without an autohorn to signal line changes, plus a short break halway through the session. It might be prudent to bring both a white and dark jersey, because the teams are not clear at the moment as well. Afterward, I predict brunch at Mimi’s Cafe to put back all the calories.
To signup, reply by email to email@example.com. If you want to volunteer for carpooling, please say so, state number of riders, and provide contact info. Roster should be published no later than 48 hours before the game. Roster and No Show policy can be found on the Sperry Marine Hockey Club web site.
