Hello Camp Courageous!
The Travel Group had a fantastic time at Mystique Community Ice Center, where we watched the Dubuque Fighting Saints battle the Cedar Rapids Rough Riders! We started the trip, picking up all 6 travelers in Coralville.
Once everyone was checked in I told the travelers that I had a surprise for them! They were going to have the opportunity to go down to the tunnel and high five all of the Fighting Saints players and they went back out on the ice after intermission!!! I also told them that it was Mascot Mania night so there were going to be a lot of mascots walking around to visit and take pictures with! The Travelers were pumped!!!
We made our way to Dubuque and arrived around 6pm. We hadn’t even made it to our seats before we ran into quite a few mascots so we took advantage and snapped some pictures!
Once we found our seats, we grabbed some food and watched the game!
We had great seats! We had a great view of the game and we were close to all of the mascots that were walking around the area! Many of the mascots stopped to visit and take pictures with our group!
At the end of the first period we made our way over to Fan Services to get ready for our special high five experience! We were escorted downstairs and positioned at the tunnel near the locker room for the Fighting Saints.
After some more pictures with mascots on the way out, we headed back to our seats to watch the game!
The Rough Riders scored near the end of the third period tying up the game and sending us into overtime! There was so much excitement in the arena!
With 1:10 left in overtime, the Fighting Saints scored and won the game 2-1. The arena went wild, everyone was cheering and clapping!
We hopped back on the bus and made our way back to camp. Everyone was picked up on time.
We had such a great time the game! Everyone was so nice and helpful, making sure our group was happy with our experience!
