After a Sunday afternoon Capitals game years ago, before I was able to get season tickets, I saw a line of people holding skates and I was immediately jealous. I asked and found out that it was a private skating session for season ticket holders and their guests. It was one of the things that I remembered when I finally had the chance to get season tickets.
At that time, I didn’t realize all of the other benefits of being a season ticket holder – the annual meet the team party; the chalk talks with the announcers, NHL officials and referees, and team management; the summer movie nights; and summer skating sessions.
Sunday Skate Opportunity
The final season ticket holder skate for this season will be this Sunday (March 24) following the Capitals-Flyers game and your friends at Friends in Cold Places want you to be able to go as their guest and have the chance to experience this event. We have three passes available for our readers.
If you have ever wanted to go skating at Capital One Arena, here’s your chance and there’s only a few conditions.
- You must have a ticket to the Capitals-Flyers game.
- You must have and bring your own skates.
- You must be willing to sign the liability waiver that the Capitals give to all skaters.
- You agree that Friends in Cold Places is not responsible for any injuries that you may suffer from participating. (Sorry, but we had to throw in the legal language).
Here’s how you can win passes:
Between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. (EST) tonight (March 22), follow (or be a follower of) FiCP on Twitter, send out a tweet that says “I want to go skating with FiCP” and tag Friends in Cold Places in your tweet. In your tweet, tell us how many passes you will be able to use. We will randomly pick a winner after 10 p.m. and, if there are passes remaining after the first winner is selected, we will pick additional winners.
Thanks for being a loyal reader and we hope to see your skating skills on display on Sunday.
