Chicago Express Hockey Game - Star Wars Night
Sunday, March 18, 2012
Sears Centre Arena - Hoffman Estates, IL

2012 is the Chicago Express Hockey Team’s inaugural season, and they asked us to come out on March 18th to come celebrate Family Night with a Star Wars theme. They gave us our own Green Room, gave us free roam of the stadium (for the most part), and event play a short game of broomball between the 1st and 2nd periods.

We went up to the front gates when the doors opened at 3:00 so that we could greet the ticket holders and hand out programs. Oh, and of course, take photos with people and just have fun.

The game began at 4:00 and most of us went back down to the Green Room to get some water and relax until the end of the 1st period, when it would be time for….BROOMBALL!!!

This was so much fun! The game was only 4 minutes long, which was plenty of time for us. After all, most of us couldn’t see much after the first minute or so, due to our lenses fogging up in our buckets! I guess it’s a good thing that the ball was bright orange so we could still see it!

Most of us suited down after broomball was over (some of which had to leave so they could make another special troop that was happening further south), while a few others stayed a little longer to watch the game and mingle a bit more.
The troop was a lot of fun. Thank you to all that came out for it!
