Rick Posted July 21, 2003 Share Posted July 21, 2003 I posted this on uscollegehockey, but I will post it here also: Fighting Sioux hockey camps drew over 1200 kids to Ralph Engelstad Arena this year. Many of the kids are from North Dakota, Minnesota and Manitoba. But quite a few kids came from the Mps/St. Paul Metro area. In addition to that, there were a lot of kids from Alaska, Texas, Montana, South Dakota, California, Wyoming, Wisconsin, and several other states and Canadian Provinces. Some kids flew in on private jets. If a kid is flying to camp, Coach Blais picks them up at the airport. Parents are really amazed when they call the office to make arrangements for lodging and airport pickup. They think they will have to make arrangements for a taxi or hotel shuttle (if they are staying at a hotel), or a UND shuttle (if they are staying in a dorm) to pick up their kids at the airport. Then they are told that Coach Blais will be picking them up when their flight arrives. If Coach Blais is unable to make it, then Assistant Coaches Dave Hakstol or Brad Berry will be picking them up. Like everything else they do, the hockey camp is a first class operation. Women Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
