Pat Burns Arena events web-streamed

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE -

There should be a full house at Stanstead’s new arena this week­end: it is the of­fi­cial open­ing. On Mon­day morn­ing there was a line-up for the free tick­ets to the Pat Burns Arena’s Open­ing Cer­e­mony and for the Ex­hi­bi­tion Game by the Canadiens Alumni, and at only two tick­ets per fam­ily, they went fast. How­ever, thanks to modern tech­nol­ogy, the Open­ing Cer­e­mony and the Canadiens game will be web-streamed live so that even those with­out tick­ets can wit­ness the his­toric oc­ca­sion and the fun. View­ers will be able to find the link to the web stream on the Town of Stanstead’s web­site. Fri­day night’s Chi­nese buf­fet din­ner is also sold out, how­ever, there are still tick­ets avail­able for the Satur­day sup­per. Tick­ets aren’t needed for the other events go­ing on, such as the Old Timers Game, the Bor­der Mi­nor hockey game, the fig­ure skat­ing show, the Cham­plain Cougars game and the free skate, all sched­uled for Satur­day. “We’re hop­ing to have the Wall of Hon­our and all of the seat plaques in­stalled be­fore the week­end,” men­tioned Ross Murray of Stanstead Col­lege. There are sev­eral arena seats still up for sale at $1000 each. Each spon­sored seat fea­tures a plaque that can be en­graved with up to 50 char­ac­ters.
