Denver, Colorado (December 3, 2012) – Never Summer, 686, Snowboard Colorado, Zeal Optics, PBR and Monster Energy are proud to announce the fourth annual SIA/SOS Shootout is a go. Set to go down on Wednesday January 30th, the game will kick off the SIA tradeshow in Denver, Colorado. The competitive hockey game benefiting SOS Outreach, will feature all kinds of snowboard and ski industry heads from the US and Canada, ready to square off before the show as well as a couple of NHL alumni.
Spectators are encouraged to attend, especially if they like great cold beer and good “beer league” hockey. Attendance is free. Each team is made up of a max of 15 players plus goalies. PBR is generously providing the brew and Monster is helping to kick it up a notch with the donation of your favorite energy drinks. A suggested donation of $2 per can for the spectators and $20/player goes straight to SOS Outreach. There will also be a silent auction with items donated from the participants, sponsors and local businesses.
Last year we had NHL Alumni Scott Parker participating and he’s playing again, and we anticipate getting a few other former pro’s on the roster before the puck drops. Don’t miss out on the chance to smash your favorite rep, shop employee or industry vet into the boards while dangling your way to the net. The Shootout will take place at the Foothills Ice Arena in Lakewood, Colorado at 8:45 PM. Don’t have a car? A shuttle between convention center and rink will be ready. The My Frends/Never Summer party shuttle will leave from the Blue Bear in front of the convention center about 7:45 PM and again at 8:30 on the 25th to take players and spectators to the rink.
