GWH commemorative sweatshirts – Celebrate the first 20 seasons of Gopher Women's Hockey while supporting the current team with a new hooded sweatshirt! The Power Play Club has worked with Signature Concepts on a new design featuring the team's 1997 inaugural season year and a "2 DECADES OF EXCELLENCE" patch on the sleeve. Sweatshirts in maroon or bright "yellow gold" can be purchased online in sizes S to 3XL for $50 plus shipping at www.signatureconcepts.com/gopherwomenshockey. Personalization is available at an additional cost. Monday, October 23 is the deadline to order! $10 from every purchased sweatshirt comes back to the PPC to support the team.
Sweatshirts are also available in the lighter "Vegas gold" color, in sizes M to 3XL. They are not available online, but can be ordered through PPC president Bill Johnson. Cash or check at the PPC table at Ridder Arena this coming weekend (during the OSU series) are requested.
Teddy Bear Toss bears – Save yourself a trip to the store! The Power Play Club is pre-selling teddy bears for the annual GWH Teddy Bear Toss, which will be held during the second game of the series against Bemidji State on Saturday, December 2. For $8 per bear, you will receive a voucher indicating the number of bears you've purchased; that voucher can then be redeemed to get your bear(s) during the first game of the series on December 1 or before the game on 12/2. The voucher also serves as a receipt, as purchases of all tossed teddy bears are tax-deductible. In addition to the bears being donated to charity, proceeds from the sale go to support the GWH program.
Power Play Club / Gopher Women's Hockey scarves will be on sale at GWH home games at Ridder Arena while supplies last. Scarves are priced at $20 apiece and can be purchased at the PPC table on the Ridder Arena concourse. Proceeds will go back to the Gopher Women's Hockey team. Once again, thanks to Zan Ceeley of Trio Bookworks for her original design!!
We send a friendly reminder that registration for the 5th season of the Power Play Club's “Goals for a Goal” Campaign is open! Your participation converts every regular-season Gopher goal into a contribution to the Gopher Women’s Hockey Service Fund, which will be used for Ridder Arena improvements. You can contribute any amount you like for each goal scored – last season we raised over $7,000 (!!) – and the team started this year with 7 goals in their opening series.
