For those of you that read the News-Miner, the the Nanook Hockey Banquet is this Friday at the Princess Lodge in the Edgewater room. Social hour, meaning Meet-N-Greet with the players and coaches, starts at 6:00PM, with dinner to follow at 6:45. Cost for adults is $35, children (12 and under) are $15. For tickets, contact Barb Milles at (907) 479-3391.
In addition to hearing from the coach, the new players will be "grilled" by Bob Downes so you can get to know them better, and the captains for the coming season will be named.
