Don’t Miss Your Chance To See The Cup In Mandan Today
It's considered the most magnificent trophy in all of sports.
The Lord Stanley's Cup is coming to Mandan, North Dakota TODAY, Monday, September 12th at Mandan's beautiful Starion Rink.
This is being made possible by the Mandan Hockey Club and is courtesy of former Mandan Hockey Club member Casey Bond. Casey is the strength and conditioning coach of the Colorado Avalanche.
According to a Facebook post on the Mandan Hockey Club's page, the general public will have a chance to view the cup. I personally would like to drink champagne from the cup, but a selfie will have to do. Club members and sponsors will be able to view the cup from 2 pm to 4 pm on Monday, September 12th. It will be open to the general public from 4 pm to 7:30 pm, so be sure that your phone is charged for this extremely rare photo opportunity.
Hot dogs, chips, and soda will be provided by Starion Bank. There will be a free-will donation accepted for your photo with the Stanley Cup. All proceeds will go to benefit the capital campaign addition to the Starion Rink.
The Stanley Cup has been around for a long time.
According to Wikipedia, the trophy was commissioned in 1892 and is the oldest trophy in all of sports. There's a lot of folklore and tradition that goes with the cup.
Did you know, there are actually three Stanley Cups?
The original bowl of the "Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup", the authenticated "Presentation Cup", and the spelling-corrected "Permanent Cup" that is on display at the Hockey Hall of Fame whenever the Presentation Cup is not available.
Don't miss this chance to witness something special and be a part of hockey history in Mandan.
