Missouri Mavericks Game - November 17, 2012
We still have more of our Schmid family visit coming up, but I wanted to sneak in this post for the Mavericks game we attended with our KCP&L Power Partners retirement club last Saturday. We had about 55 club members join us a the game with was at the Independence Events Center. This was our first hockey game and the first time to the new Events Center. We had a good time and the center is really nice for small to medium sized events. Sigrid enjoys ice hockey much more than baseball and I don't blame her....the action is non-stop. We will probably go to another game in the future. Here are a few photos from the game. All photos were taken with Sigrid's little point and shoot camera because I was too lazy to bring the big camera....not too bad.
The Zamboni's get the ice ready.
Every sports team has a mascot...for the Mavericks, it is "Mac".
A Blue Springs elementary school music class sang the National Anthem....a nice hometown touch.
Some of the Power Partners club members.
The Mavericks played the Rapid City Rush.
A little break in the hockey was filled with a fun race using audience members. They put on the pony gear and raced from one end of the rink and back.
Sigrid and Edel has a good time.
Unfortunately, the Mavericks lost to the Rush.
We ended the night by eating at a Japanese Steakhouse.....too much food too late for old folks but it was fun.
