Thank you again for another awesome few days.

There are too many people to thank, but specifically want to shout out to:

Charlie Webb from for organizing the Jerseys and socks for the event, and for coming out with a vendor booth.

Dave Reginek - Thank you for the amazing photos once again! Everyone is changing their profile photos to a picture that you took!

George and Newman with the Red Wings Alumni - thanks for bringing two amazing players out to show us how bad we REALLY are.

Petr Klima and Jason Woolley - Thank you for coming out and giving us a chance to think we could take the puck from you, or that the goalies could stop you!

Justin Dunn from - Thanks for bringing your group out, not only to skate, but to have a booth set up. Big thanks for the Tailgate party at the Michigan game on Saturday as well - that was top notch!
