An Eastern MA ARRL-affiliated club is promoting a unique social activity this holiday season. Members of the Police Amateur Radio Team of Westford plan to attend a Lowell Lock Monsters hockey game against the Providence Buins at the Tsongas Arena on December 3, 2005.
“We currently have eleven people signed up for the game,” writes Charles Suprin, AA1VS. Suprin is attempting to recruit one more attendee to acheive a group ticket rate. “With the group package we will get PART’s name in lights on the Jumbotron,” he adds.
“The Lock Monsters are promoting their ‘Teddy Bear Toss Night’ at the game,” says AA1VS. “Fans are encouraged to bring new or ‘gently used’ teddy bears and to toss them onto the ice when the Lock Monsters score their first goal of the night. The teddy bears will benefit the pediatric unit at Lowell General Hospital and other local charities.”
Suprin requests that PART members interested in attending notify him by November 27.
