Hockey a Hit So Far

    This year's emergence of professional hockey at the Fairgrounds Arena couldn't have come at a better time, what with the  NHL kaput and fans in need of the kind of hard charging and exciting hockey provided by the Privateers of the Federal Hockey League.
Tonights Game at the Fairgrounds

     Tonights game like many attracted a good crowd and I have been making a point of talking to fans, workers and others about how the whole thing is going.
     Moving the Privateers here is something Councilman Smith brought to my attention and following the ArenaGate episode, it seemed  a great initiative to ramp up use of the facility.
     It has worked well, and all the feed back I get is positive.....Other groups still get their time there.....the concessions are working well....the quality of play is excellent.
     It will be good to look back at the season when it ends to see if what's gone one can be built upon.  Good team effort.

Here's a thought if there's a fight on the ice are the Police called??? If the fight results in an arrest?

Tax payers better hope they(Privateers) pay for their ice rental as they still owe bonnie castle and the village rink for ice rental from last year!!

Well at least you have some hockey to watch up there. On Time Warner they have Rochester listed but can't get them. And on MSG have Russians to be playing.
