Just called to get my FOF passes. If you have any questions definitely call the donations people because they know much more then the ticket office. I guess each game will have an individual ticket to get into the room. She said that this system will be strictly enforced, and the issue 3 years ago was due to licensing, which I think most people knew. When I explained that many of the games I invite friends to come and they won't be able to come in with me, the answer was basically tough luck. I kinda get it, if everyone brings in guests each week the place will get packed. I'm fine with that. I guess 130 people have signed up so far, so we will have to see how many come by tonight. All said and done I can't wait to see the rink and game tonight!

I paid for 4 passes hoping they would stick to it this time. It just got too crowded in there some nights with the out of town teams fans walking in at will. We went to a game in New Hampshire last year and they have a private club. Needless to say we tried to get in with no luck. As for Schneider, I cant wait to see it tonight.

From what i've been told is that they removed the old bar from the center of the room and moved it to the wall near the bar exit door.
So did anyone actually pay to get into friends of friars. I called yesterday to express my concern that I'd pay for it and halfway through the season they would open it to everyone (like they did 3 years ago), but the girl was obviously a student who could care less. She kept putting me on hold and asking someone else questions. I wish she had just put me on the line with that person. As I said to her I don't mind donating to the school, but $250 is alot for a young alumni like myself. The other thing that has always bothered me is that if a few friends decide to come down and buy tickets, I can still only have 2 people come up to FOF because that's what I'm given. I'm obviously not going to usher in 20 of my rowdy alumni buddies but they should figure something out where FOF card holders can bring in guests. Even make the guest pay a cover or something. So that's my annual FOF rant. All said and done I will probably throw down the $250 because FOF breaks up the game nicely and after working all week all I want to do is have a beer and watch some hockey. Looking forward to seeing the new rink tonight! Also, did I read somewhere that FOF was renovated again?

It supposedly is a much smaller bar.

WOW!! Good start to the season tonight. Mankato came out really strong in the 1st. The Friars pretty much dominated from the start of the 2nd on. Fun to watch.

Great start in a fantastic building.....they did everything right.......my only problem was understanding the announcer it sounded garbled like it had too much base and needed compression, but the volume was fine.....nice start for the team now lets sweep them back home

No upgrade to the concession food. That's disappointing.

Good update to the underneath of Scheinder but my seats now have a handicapped area that people tend to stand in blocking my view...

I thought the team had some jitters in period 1 but then settled down. Gilmour's goal was a beaut!

Great performance by PC after the first ten minutes as Mankato was all over them. Mauerman's goal tonight was a beauty while Gilmour's first was a snipe...

Really like McKenzie's game and looked like he belonged out there for a 20 year old freshman. Rufo was hit or miss tonight.

One guy that didn't show up on the scoresheet that had a great game was Steve McParland. He was all over the place short handed and helped set up Gilmour's first goal.

Nice to hear the Friars opened with a W. may it be the first of 20 or more.

I wonder if my lifetime pass will get m into the FOF room when I make the 2300 mile trek to see a game?

Geeze, and I thought I was dedicated with my 400 mile trek... you win!

I started freaking out when Minnesota State scored their first one, but I'm glad the team was able to bounce back.

I'm sorry that you are having to deal with that. I would call the ticket office on Tuesday and ask them to move you. (I hate my advice cause I'm sure you like your presents seats) I noticed that there were people standing there and couldn't believe that no one was ushering fans out those areas. I don't see it getting better and a move might be in your best interest if only for peace of mind.

I thought everything looked great except for the weird thing behind the visiting net. :p

I called them and they gave me four different tickets for tonight's game and said they will try to find new tickets for me for the rest of the year. The lady that answered the phone was very helpful!

Very glad to hear it. I know it's a pain but will work out better for you in the long run. You have to be able to see and I noticed more traffic concourse due to the higher attendance, which will only get better (or worse depending how you look at it) with the teams continued improvement. Glad to read that they were helpful. Wishing you the best.
