Dear fellow Docs on Ice:
Only 51 more sleeps until DOI2019!
Here at the SOL clubhouse, we have had only one fight: would the motto be “Play. Party. Repeat” or “Party. Play. Repeat”?
In the end, we have arranged both. Party. Play. Party. Play. Repeat. Repeat.
In this week’s update we would like to start off with PARTY:
The DOI2019 Thursday Night NHL Hall of Fame Legends of Hockey Party
We know you like to go out with your team-mates on the Thursday evening. We heartily support that, and we would like to provide an awesome venue to get your evening started with games, good food and, well, yes, craft beer, of course.
But we want you to delay the going out part just a bit, let the locals clear the bar stools, and first come on in to the Legends game at Smiths Falls Memorial Arena from 6 pm to 11 pm.
Who will be there?
How about Wendel Clark, Darcy Tucker, Billy Smith, Guy Carbonneau, Matt Barnaby, Olympian Geraldine Heaney, Mike Krushelnyski, and more.
That is the start of a pretty fun party.
But there will be only 10 of them. You can’t play full lines with only 10.
Who will complete the Legends team you ask? Glad you asked. You will! The top 6 individual donation earners will get to skate with the Legends team. Keep your stick on the ice and go to the net, is our suggestion.
But who will the Legends (and Docs on Ice heroes) play against? Glad you asked. They will play against you! The top three fund-raising teams will form the opponents for the Legends. Dressing rooms access, post-period on-ice pictures with the Legends. Getting hacked by Billy Smith. Priceless.
And the fourth period will feature our DOI 25-year pin recipients and DOI Hall of Famers!
Get your 25 year pin at centre ice from an NHL Hall of Famer, in a ceremony befitting our Legends of DOI.
Can’t get in on either of those situations?
Well, good news, there is a way: we are auctioning off coach’s spots, 2 per period. Dressing room access. Be right on bench with the Legends!
And, did we mention beer? Oops. Sorry to have delayed.
Local craft breweries will be there. 4 Degrees Brewing Company from Smitsh Falls will be there, as well as Stalwart Brewing Co. from Carleton Place. Plus there will be a sampling of some of SOL’s favourite craft brews.
Not into beer? Top Shelf Distillers will be there, customizing your drinks.
The Table, a local food bank and good-food advocate charity will be providing an interesting variety of reasonably priced, tasty dinner options and snacky foods, so be sure to bring an appetite.
This Thursday night spectacle is the place to bring your spouse, kids or groupies. Friday Night will be just for DOI. But this is for everyone.If you want tickets for the Thursday Night Legends of Hockey Party, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org $50 each for non-DOI, and a bargain at that.
Signed game-worn jerseys. Sports games. Great food and tasty beer. Sports vacation auctions. The whole arena licensed. Wendel presenting 25 year pins. Try on Mike Krushelnyski’s 5 Stanley Cup rings while chatting with him over a beer. Listen to Tucker explain the Alfie hit. Did we mention tasty local craft beer?
You really don’t want to miss Thursday night this year.
The Thursday Night Legends of Hockey Party. 6pm to 11pm, Thursday March 28, 2019. Smiths Falls Memorial Arena.
And then, once the fun is done at that party is done, hit the local spots with your team. We have warned them you will be arriving.
Next week: And you thought Thursday night was epic. The Friday Night Epic.
