Alumni Association Gears Up to Host Annual 'Tailgate on Ice' Hockey Event

Tailgate on IceAlumni and fans of Ferris State University are invited to “Tailgate on Ice” before the Bulldog ice hockey team goes head-to-head with the Western Michigan University Broncos on Friday, Feb. 1.

The Alumni Association is hosting the fifth annual event from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the multi-purpose room at Ewigleben Sports Complex. Alumni will be joined by faculty, staff, Emeriti and friends for food and fun before game time.

“If you’re looking to get your spirits high before the game, there’s no better place than the tailgate party,” said Jeremy Mishler, director of Alumni Relations and Advancement Operations and executive director of the Alumni Association.

Hockey head coach Bob Daniels, the reigning National Coach of the Year, will be in attendance. Food and beverages will be provided as well as door prizes.

“This is an opportunity for the hockey fan-base to pre-game with a big group of supporters and end the evening with a walk down the hall to the game,” Mishler said.

Tickets are $20 and include the tailgate, a game ticket and a parking pass. Cost for the tailgate is $10 for season-ticket holders.
