RUMBLE BEES COACHING CHANGE COMES AS TEAM GETS SET TO EMBARK ON EXTENDED 6-GAMES ROAD TRIP
ROAD MISSION: For this weekend, the Rumble Bees will sojourn to Connecticut where they will tangle with the Danbury Hat Tricks in a two-games in two-nights series. This will mark the first time ever these two inter-divisional adversaries have seen each other in on ice competition. Game time both nights is set for 7:00 pm with radio broadcast time being 6:30 pm on WFAT 102.7 FM and 930 AM. This weekend’s trek will represent Battle Creek’s lone appearances in the Connecticut city as the two clubs will lock horns a total of four times this season; the latter two bouts will be waged and staged January 24 and January 25th here in Battle Creek. Next week, the team will leave on Wednesday, November 27th for a 7:05 EST start against the Danville Dashers. They will leave immediately after the game's completion and head to Winston-Salem, NC for a 3-game series with the Thunderbirds, playing at 7:35 on Thanksgiving Night and Friday Night, and a 6:05 puck drop Saturday night. We wish our guys safe travels and a very Happy Thanksgiving on the road, away from family and friends.
WORLD FAMOUS TEDDY BEAR TOSS IS COMING!!: Following an 18-days’ absence from home ice action, the Rumble Bees will be back in town on the weekend of December 6th and December 7th when they collide with the defending Regular Season and Commissioner’s Cup Champions, the Carolina Thunderbirds. Saturday night, December 7th has been designated as “TEDDY BEAR TOSS NIGHT” at The Rink Battle Creek. All fans, in fact, absolutely everyone is exhorted to bring a new stuffed animal when attending this Rumble Bees home performance and when our home team scores its first goal of the game, toss those assorted furry creatures onto the ice. These stuffed animals will be collected and donated to the special children in need during the Christmas Holiday season.
