2010 Kendall Hockey Classic - Quest for a 3'Peat

The reigning Kendall Hockey Classic champions will defend their title against two formidable opponents this weekend in Air Force, and the #2 ranked North Dakota Fighting Sioux. Previews for both are coming, I just wanted to help get the word out early for those that may plan on being in Anchorage this weekend (it is PFD-weekend after all).

For those that won't be in Anchorage, both games will be broadcast on GCI Channel 1 and KFXF Fox 7 in Fairbanks. While Saturday's game will be live, Friday's game will be tape delayed until 10PM due to programming conflicts. Also, the radio feed from Bruce Cech is on 91.5 KSUA, and streaming online at http://ksua.uaf.edu.

Both games will obviously be at the Sullivan Arena. Friday's game against Air Force will be at 5:07PM AKDT, and Saturday against NoDak will be at 4:07PM.

As far as pre-game activities,

7:15 pm the Kendall Hockey Classic banquet will be held at the Anchorage Marriott Downtown.  Cost is $35 and reservations can be made by calling Jane Pallister at 786-1225.

11:30 am the Kendall Hockey Classic luncheon will take place at the Anchorage Sheraton.  Cost is $30 and reservations can be made by calling Rhea Caldwell at 786-1250.

I've also gotten some questions about hotel deals for the classic. The Hilton Garden Inn is offering a special of $99 per night including their breakfast buffet.  The Hilton has a shuttle service that has in the
past gotten people to/from the Sullivan and their website indicates that they will attempt to accommodate the local shuttle needs of guests.

If you are interested, please call the hotel directly at (907) 729-7000.  In the past, the people at the desk aren't always told of this special, so if they aren't able to find this - the rate was arranged through Kymberly Flores, Sales Manager at the Hilton.
