Aces Military Appreciation Weekend Starts Tonight

The Alaska Aces are proud to invite their fans to participate in this weekend’s Military Appreciation Weekend as the Aces host the Ontario Reign at Sullivan Arena.  The Aces will be home on Friday and Saturday Night at 7:15 p.m., and on Sunday afternoon at 5:05 p.m.  Come out and celebrate with a salute to the military on Friday and Saturday Nights, and then have your chance to skate with the Aces after the game Sunday. 


In recognition of our military members’ service to our country, the Aces are proud to host Military Appreciation Weekend during the first two games of the three-game home stand.  On Friday and Saturday, the Aces will be dressed in special, "Gone, But Not Forgotten" military-themed jerseys, which will be auctioned off to fans after Saturday’s game. Additionally, there will be representatives from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, and several military guests present at both games.  Fans are also encouraged to join the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots collection, as the Aces will collect toys at the arena on both nights.  There are two ways for fans to donate new, unwrapped toys at the game.  Fans can bring new, unwrapped, plush toys, such as teddy bears, and throw them onto the ice following the Aces first goals on Friday and Saturday.  Fans can also bring large new, unwrapped toys and donate them at the Sullivan Arena entrance.  All toys collected will be donated this holiday season as part of the Toys for Tots program. 


On Sunday, the Aces are happy to host their first Fred Meyer Skate with the Aces session following the game.  After Sunday’s game, Aces players will return to the ice from the locker room to take part in a public skating session with the fans.  Fans can bring their skates to the rink and skate with the team for free.  Fans must have skates to go on the ice with the team.  While on the ice, fans will be able to take pictures with, and get autographs from their favorite Aces.
