POTSDAM - The Potsdam Chamber of Commerce is once again hosting Hockey Night in Potsdam. The games are early in January this year. The chamber will be selling hockey tickets to the Jan. 3 womens game between the Clarkson and Boston College and the mens game on Jan. 4 between the Clarkson Golden Knights and UMASS Lowell. Tickets for the womens game are $4 each and the mens tickets are $13 each and, through the generosity of Clarkson University, $10 from each mens ticket sold will go back to the chamber.
There will also be a Ladies Night Expo from 6-8 p.m. on the night of the womens game. We want people to come before the game to check out the vendors who will be offering great items or information that are women focused. The Potsdam Chamber has invited its members to set up at this event, and if space is still available, the chamber will open spaces to non chamber members for a small fee, chamber Director Marylee Ballou.
Tickets to either game will make a great gift for the hockey fans in the family or for employee incentives/rewards, Ms. Ballou said. Those who have chamber tickets will have the added bonus of being entered to win Potsdam Gift Certificates which we will give away at the games.
Blevins Motors will once again sponsor the Make the Shot, Win a Jeep contest during the first intermission of the Clarkson mens game. Three eligible chamber ticket holders are randomly selected to go onto the ice to try to shoot a puck from behind the red line through a slot on a board placed over the goal. The first to make the shot will win.
The spectators and contestants really enjoyed this. Even though we havent had a winner yet, we have had a shot each year that had potential, chamber board member Rob Bicknell said.
