The Ice Center and Power Play Sports are bringing a free hockey event to Waterbury: The Bauer Experience. |
Bauer, a well-known name in hockey equipment, will be at the Ice Center Friday, Nov. 9, from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. with more than 500 pieces of hockey gear that people can try out.
Anyone interested is welcome to attend, free - from the casual skater to pond-hockey and youth-hockey players.
"Professional hockey may be on hold, but we still have plenty of enthusiasm for the sport," said Kelly Lilly, manager of the Ice Center.
All participants can work with Bauer representatives to determine the best gear for them, skate through stations to test the gear, and talk with Power Play Sports owner Caleb Magoon about costs.
The Ice Center snack bar will be open and participants can look forward to a little swag, courtesy of Bauer Hockey, and discount coupons from both the Ice Center and Power Play.
Magoon pushed to have the event in this part of Vermont.
"I thought it would be a great thing for the hockey community," said Magoon, an organizer and sponsor of the event. He got the idea while talking hockey sticks with a customer.
"There are literally hundreds of stick options available," Magoon said, "and most customers don't get a chance to try them before they spend what can be large amounts of money on a new stick or pair of skates. This event will give them the chance to see and test out firsthand the huge array of gear Bauer sells."
