I'm pretty sure they played prep school games there last year so its NOT out of the question, Im sure its WHO you know to get a game in.

Nobody will ever break the record for empty seats at a College hockey game that Adrian set last year. All in all it was still a really neat opportunity for them to play that outdoor game.

Or who can PAY! My understanding was that the prep schools (or a financially able parent/sponsor) actually had to pay a significant amount to be able to play at Fenway last year. I'm sure it was a great experience and worth the money but...

NUProf, I find it equally interesting that with 1470 official paid attendance, it set an all time record attendance for an Adrian home hockey game, if playoff games are not counted.
Arrington Arena seating capacity of 550 will be increased by the end of the 2011-2012 season with the additionof seating and a restaurant above the bench area. Entrance will be from the outside of the arena. Construction has begun.

It sounds like the program has been even more successful than anticipated when it was launched - or it least has been successful a lot quicker. I wasn't maligning your team here at all just, still contemplating what a crowd of 1470 would have looked like in that cavernous stadium. That's a lot of empty seats.

We did have a lot of elbow room.

I had plenty of elbow room, seeing as I was on the field, and at one point, next to the bench. :D

It was one hell of an experience. Anyone who gets an opportunity to do something similar should jump at the opportunity. You will not regret it. Those of you that don't, well, it's your loss.

Does anyone know how long the Red Sox plan on leaving the ice in AFTER the Hockey East doubleheader?

Prez ... Seems to me it would be worth it to move that Babson game up a day or three if need be to get the chance to play it on the hallowed ice below the Green Monster.

I don't think Salem St. - Fitchburg St. is going to draw a heck of a lot. :D

Prez, did you already know that things were in motion back then? If you did: shame on you :)

I would encourage any of you who are able, to attend that game, regardless of school affiliation. One, it's good for D-3 hockey. Two, it's a wonderful experience. I've been to two outdoor games (2001 at Michigan State, and 2010 at Michigan last year), and I had nothing but fun at both.

Yeah, I had to get a press box, I was tired of the paper boy leaving it on the ground.
