Hey Justin- have you noticed how bad the IHL web site is? There are times I want to access the "ticker" with game scores and it brings up an error page. After hitting refresh a couple of times, it finally makes it. I figured the shutout record would be more than 12 games. How many did St. Pierre have last year?

JW

how about this Wings/Avs game on VS. gettin pretty chippy

JW

jonn you are so correct about the ihl website. they need to make it a little more "user friendly" in my opinion...then again im old school and i love the old text stats

Jerad Shaw

I believe me and the girl are going up on Sunday. Probably will be a buy tickets at the door type of thing. Seems like tickets to this game are a bit hard to get on the glass. Not normal for a Sunday Kwings game!!! I'm hoping to get over the penalty box area!!! I love getting the Kwings fans business!!

Kris

Hey Jerad. If you read the comments from this posting and the comments from the previous posting, there are quite a few people interested in the Flint trip. Check your email. GO KOMETS!!!

Kris

ANYONE INTERESTED IN A TRIP UP TO FLINT, MICHIGAN FOR THE GAMES ON FRIDAY, APRIL 11 AND SATURDAY, APRIL 12, PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL AT hrdrumguy11@hotmail.com. JERAD SHAW AND MYSELF (KRIS HAYNES) ARE TRYING TO SEE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED SO WE CAN TALK TO THE KOMETS ABOUT MAYBE GETTING US A BUS FOR THE WEEKEND. LET'S FILL THEIR BARN WITH ORANGE AND BLACK!!!

Jungle Monkey

awwwwwwww so cute

Jerad Shaw

I have @ least 5 people that have given me the nod. I'm sure I can work up a couple people around here that might want to go! JW, you are in too!!

FWKRTJ

I'll be up in the 'zoo with the flag. Also, I sent you an email Kris, about Flint.

Hoss

morency fan

dang that brawl was awsome!!lol
but yeah me and about 6 or 7 of us are going up to kalamazoo...

anyonegoing to Bloomington on the 1st of March?...

New Komet Fan

I might be all wet but Jerad why do you think the Komets would get you a bus to go to the game in Flint?!?

Jerad Shaw

It was a suggestion that we take a fan bus to Flint. They have had bus trips like this before. I just thought it would be fun for everyone to go up to the season finale and show our support. Obviously, there would be a charge for tickets and the trip, but if we get enough people, it could be fairly cheap.

St. Christopher

FYI:FWFD/FWPD hockey team will be playing against Summit Fire in K'zoo prior to the Komets/Wings game on Sunday.I believe admission is free but don't quote me on that.Game time is 1:30. More bang for your hockey buck if your interested.

JW

how about we pool everyone for the playoffs and take over everyones arena with a massive effort
we have the reg season under control. we have enough time to plan a mean playoff road trip takeover.

mightbite

Can you take beer on the bus? Also is this a overnight trip?

Jerad Shaw

I think an overnight trip would end up being pretty expensive. For rental of a bus/tickets, we go to Milwaulkee every year for 120 bucks a person. One game with a bus ride to and from would be great. I would prefer a bus right where beer would be allowed. Not sure what everyone else is wanting. Maybe back of the bus is the beer drinkers!!! If we get enough interest, I will delv into it more. Justin will have to ride the fan bus!

Jerad Shaw

Let me explain myself a bit better. Myself and a bunch of people go to Milwaulkee every year. Leave Friday @ noon and come back Sunday @ 10. We go to one baseball game plus tailgating food. That adds up to 120 a person. I just sent a quote out to 2 Ladies One Bus. They do a great job with trips. I'm guessing if we could get 40 people to go, we could do the bus part of it for around 20 dollars a person, if not less. That would still leave tickets though. Just a thought.

kometfan

I would love to go to that season finale in flint!! sounds like a great idea...

Andrew

I agree with what JW said. We will have a good chance of playing Flint and Kzoo. We should just take over their arena for the playoffs. I know a lot more "common fans" would love go go to the first round of the playoffs in a bus if they are in Kzoo.

Jerad Shaw

I agree with you in certain aspects Andrew. It is not offcial who we are playing in that first round. If we play KZOO in the first round, then there is no reason to get a bus. We could all meet up with each other via our own travel. If we play Flint in the final, then I'm sure the Komets will figure out a bus trip during the playoffs. This is being planned by Komets fans for the last game of the Reg. season to show the dedication. I have no qualms with going on a playoff road trip, but as fans, we are trying to get this together for a definate road trip that not alot of Komets fans have been on.

jonndfi

I doubt that the bus trip would be sponsored by the Komets- I really can't remember when they sponsored the last trip. Not sure they want to get involved in that. What ever happened to the Komet hockey club that was started a few years ago?

Tom

I saw everyone who wants to go coordinate together and buy a block of tickets together. Plan to take 3-6 people per vehicle and everyone chip in for gas. Have a dd (which I normally am) and go from there. It is a lot cheaper and more fun. You can take stops as needed. Also would be a bit cheaper most of the time. I am game for any road trip anytime so if anyone wants to go let me know and I will drive or chip in for gas. Get travel buddies. Have a great one...if anyone has space I will go with them to K-zoo. Jerad that included you and the wife...if you go let me know.

mark

I thought the finale was here....

are you guys talking about the Friday and Saturday night games up there,....
