Marlies Pucks and Purls
Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 11, 2012. The DKC is sponsoring Pucks n’ Purls, a family-oriented event with the Toronto Marlies for knitters, with lots of activities and fun for family members of all ages.

Location: Ricoh Coliseum (Exhibition Park)
Marlies’ Alley Open: 1:30 p.m.
Gates Open: 2:00 p.m.
Game Time: 3:00 p.m.
Seating Location: Behind Marlies bench (Section 100/119)
Price: $20.00 per ticket

One and a half hours before game time, Marlies’ Alley, a family interactive zone with inflatable figures and games such as bubble hockey, hockey shooting challenge and foosball is opened for ticket holders to have active fun with their friends and families. Before the game and at intermission, there will be knitting- related activities, contests and draws for prizes.
And for a very special treat, starting about fifteen minutes after the game, there will be an hour free skate (no hockey) on the Marlies ice, exclusively for the Pucks n’ Purls ticket holders up to a limit of 250 skaters. Note that skaters or their parent/guardian will have to sign a waiver before going on the ice and that children 12 and under must wear a helmet.
Tickets are available at DKC meetings or at Marlies Pucks 'n Purlsusing Special Offer Code pucksnpurls. Support your local participating yarn store by clicking their specific link, and help the store win a prize.

In addition there will be a face off between Linda & I; throwing down the way we do - needles, yarn & 3 minutes to knit as fast as we can.

... and Ron should be coming so you can meet him. I need help convincing him that knitting as much as I do is normal. And when I say "normal" I don't just mean normal for me. 😜
