- 10 skaters and one goaltender
- 3 games - Friday 1:30pm, Saturday 6:20pm and Sunday late 10:50am
- We'll be playing against a gang of miscreants that I've met over the past five years. Many are Canadian and ALL are great guys and exceptional beer drinkers!

- Flights on Southwest (bags fly free) are currently running about $430 roundtrip (see below)

Now anything can happen between now and next February, so if someone on the list above is unable to to make the trip for one of any of the crazy reasons that life throws at us, we may need to call on someone from the waitlist to jump in.

SOUTHWEST AIRFARE AS OF NOV. 28, 2015...
The preferred itinery is highlighted below. You will want to arrive on Thurs., Feb. 25th. There is a nonstop that departs PIT at 1:30pm and arrives PHX at 4:20pm. Sunday's game will be over at 12:05pm. Shower, grab a quick bite and we'll be on the road to the airport by 1:30pm to make the 3:40pm flight back to PIT. It's a 1-stop in Denver with a short layover.
The advantage of Southwest is that 2 bags fly free and they don't charge a change fee.
