Though, because the game starts at 1, they will likely leave before the end of the game. In 1999, my buddy and I were left behind by my school because they left to be back at school for 3:15 and the game wasn't over yet. Since we were 16, they assumed that we drove ourselves and that's why they didn't miss us.
Cameco donated 15,000 tickets for both the Thursday and Friday afternoon games. Each afternoon game will have 7500 kids from various elementary and high schools from Saskatoon and surrounding area. This should help liven the atmosphere up!!
