Are you ready for some...Hockey? Yeah, I know it doesn't have the same feel as football, and why on earth am I talking Hockey at the beginning of football season?

We now have our very own hockey club in Casper, and the booster club of the Casper Coyotes are inviting everyone to kick off their inaugural season with an all day tailgate party.

Saturday, September 6th will be filled with hockey, music , food, bouncy houses for the kids and a chance to meet the young men who will make up the home team..

Coyotes players will be on hand to meet the fans and Wyo the Coyote, the Coyotes rambunctious mascot, will be mingling and mugging for the cameras throughout the days events. Coaches and Owners will be there to answer questions and talk to prospects.

The Casper Ice Arena will host the barbeque event from 9am 'til 4pm.

The day is set to begin with a Casper Coyotes versus the University of Wyoming hockey game at 10:15am. There is an Open House from 12-3 where fans can tour the facility and see the newly constructed Coyotes Den locker room . The Casper Ice Arena is hosting free skating lessons from 12-1 and free Public Skating from 1-3 in conjunction with the Coyotes’ events.
