Oct 9th Pre+Post Game Events

Just posted up on the Jets home page:

The Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club is pleased to announce details surrounding pre & post-game activities for their inaugural game on Sunday, October 9th against the Montreal Canadiens at MTS Centre.

With the excitement and anticipation building, the hockey club wants to provide an environment for all fans to enjoy the inaugural game, whether they are inside the MTS Centre or not.

Fans not attending the Home Opener at MTS Centre will be able to watch a free CBC telecast of the inaugural game at The Forks. This family-friendly event will start at noon, with live-entertainment on the Scotiabank Stage followed by the CBC broadcast of the game starting at 3:00 p.m.

The post-game festivities will be highlighted by The Official Winnipeg Jets Inaugural Game After Burner Social at the Convention Centre. Doors for the event open at 2:30 p.m. and the room will be equipped with four large screens. Following the game, the Convention Centre will host an 18+ event with entertainment from Blue Rodeo and Special Guests.

Tickets for The Official Winnipeg Jets Inaugural Game After Burner Social are available immediately for season ticket holders and waiting list members. All tickets are $35.00 (plus fees) at Ticketmaster. Tickets for the general public go on sale Monday, September 26th at 10:00 a.m.
Should be a good atmosphere at The Forks for all that don't make it into the hangar on game day!

There's this saying about those who don't learn from history being doomed to repeat it. As far as tempting fate is concerned, on a scale of 1-to-10, this one rates an 11. Doesn't anybody remember what happened last time a Canadian city put up large TV screens downtown and invited fans to congregate and watch a hockey game? Sure, 99 and 44/100 percent of the crowd may be "family friendly", but there's always a goon element. What were they thinking?

EVERYTHING RELATED TO "OUTDOOR, HOCKEY, CANADA, or TELEVISON" MUST BE STOPPED. SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!

That applies to Vancouver, they've had their chances. But to say that any outdoor celebration is too risky is silly to me.

Oh I completely agree. You know, I do not think you are thinking big enough. So since 5.6 people out of every 1000 is out to cause trouble, I feel we should limit public gatherings of ANY kind to less than 1000 people for fear of those 6, no TV screens of any kind in a public place and finally no one is allowed to wear anything that will ever associate them a group cause that's how gangs identify (jerseys, hats, similiar logos). And certainly hockey can never be broadcast to any group larger than 5. That's a given. That should eliminate that goon element.

It's a home opener, not game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. You honestly think 100,000 people will be at the Forks for this? ...
