Hello Eagles and Fans:

There is no game or practice Thanksgiving weekend. Have an excellent holiday and be sure to get some skating in too :-).

We have our photo day on Saturday Dec 6 at 2pm at the Woodbury Elementary School gym (not Bielenberg). Enter in the front entrance and we will have signs.  From our calendar:

Wear all your gear and bring sticks BUT NO SKATES. Please have Team Jersey (we have some extras).

We have to be lining up around 1:45pm, pictures taken at 2:00 pm. 

On our January 11th practice John F will take FREE (amateur) team and individual photos. We are just finalizing time for that shared practice (I’ll do our co-practice colleagues too :-). (This will be on calendar and I’ll send out reminders.)

We have a GAME Sunday Dec 7 against the Plymouth Moose at 3:30pm. The game will be at the Plymouth Ice Center, Rink B:

Our Alexandria Muskies hosted hockey jamboree is coming up FAST. It’s on our calendar Saturday December 27 and 28:

For a number of years running we have had an excellent post-holiday 2-day hockey event in Alexandria. Our friends with the Muskies host a 2-day jamboree-style festival. What that means is we divide our athletes up into levels that allow them to skate to their ability and have an appropriate amount of puck touches while getting to know other players from across the league.

The hockey blocks are 12:00 to 2:15 on Saturday, and 12:45 to 2:45 on Sunday, which gets everyone home at a decent hour. We block the time so no one gets too tired or loses interest. It is a blast, both at the arena, and at the Holiday Inn Alexandria where everyone swims, hangs out, and enjoys good bonding time.

We've arranged a block of rooms at the Holiday Inn at the following prices:

Standard Rooms = $109.99 plus tax
King Rooms = $119.99 plus tax
Recreation Area Rooms = $129.99 plus tax

Holiday Inn, Alexandria, MN
5637 State Highway 29, Alexandria, MN 56308
(320) 763-6577

If you plan on attending, get your room booked ASAP. There are a limited number of rooms. The block is reserved under MN Special Hockey.

Players... we would like an idea of how many players are attending, this will help us better organize the event. Please RSVP to Jane Cashin at if you are planning on attending.
