Minnesota Stingers snack schedule

Minnesota Stingers snack schedule is online. I left Sue's email address off to keep spammers away from it. (Mine is pretty public anyway.)

Game Day: Coach Rick on next Saturday and a missing bag

The big Polars-Stingers game is next Saturday, 6pm at Schwan`s Super Rink in Blaine (click link for directions). Don't go into the main doors that face directly nort, instead go around to
the East (left) side of the building. We are on rink #6, in the back.

Coach Rick writes (emphases mine):
We had another great practice, and we are ready for our first game. Please try to get to the game early enough to be dressed, and ready to play at 6:00pm. The game is at Schwans Super Rink in Blaine, it's a big place, so come early if you have never been there.

Most outdoor rinks, and warming houses are open now, so pack up the family and get some skating practice in. It's a cheap, fun way to get some skating in. Practice, practice, practice...

Can everyone check their equipment bag, a black bag with turquoise skate guards in it was accidentally packed up by a team member. Bring it with to the game Sunday.

I think everything is going great, if you have any questions, or concerns, please feel free to voice them at any time.

Thank you volunteers, keep up the good work.

Go Stingers!!!

Photo magnets and such: available to order

The Stingers are hoping to arrange a professional team pictures with photo magnets, etc. In the meanwhile, the service John (Faughnan) has been using does offer magnet prints, magnet prints, coasters, etc. A photo magnet is $5.00 and anyone can order one from our photo site.

Information on how to view this year's photos is in this post.

Minnesota Stingers 2006-2007 Schedule - revised

The Minnesota Stingers 2006-2007 Schedule has been revised. The official website schedule should be updated shortly, or you can use the above link. Coach Rick writes:
Hello all Stingers,

We had to make some changes to the schedule (see attachment), we added a few games, and our home ice arena had some schedule changes.

We hope our last game will be at Xcel, or at our home arena (Minnesota Made). I am trying to get the Gophers cheerleaders, and Goldy to join us for our last game. It all depends on where the Gophers men hockey team will be playing. If they play at home, or within busing distance, the cheer team and Goldy will have to go to that game. I can't imagine them passing up our game for a NCAA playoff game...

If it all goes the way we want it to go, we will play at Xcel with Goldy, and the cheerleaders.

I would like to have as many spectators as possible come and watch our final game, I think it would be fun to have a big crowd, so please mark your calendar (March 25) and start spreading the word.

We will have pizza, cake, and awards after the final game. It will be a fun filled final day.
