MARLO STANFIELD Special to The Standard
UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge Bruins are inviting their fans to hit the road with them in the PJHL Eastern Conference Finals.
The team announced, last week, they will be offering a fan bus to Game 3 in Napanee, on Sunday, March 24th.
Making their first appearance in the provincial quarterfinals in a decade, after recently defeating the North Kawartha Knights for the Orr Division’s Cougar Cup championship, the Bruins have seen a groundswell of support.
The Bruins opened their best-of-seven series, against the Tod Division champion Napanee Raiders on the road, on Tuesday, March 19th (after The Standard’s press deadline). The action shifts back to the Bear Den for Game 2, on Friday night, March 22nd.
The fan bus for Game 3 is scheduled to leave Uxbridge Arena at 4:30 p.m. sharp, making an additional pick up at 4:50 p.m., at the Iroquois Park Sports Centre in Whitby, before heading to Napanee for the game.
There would be a cost of $25 per person, payable at the time of departure (cash only).
In order for the team to book the bus, they need to know how many people are interested in this venture. Please email Terry Sovie at email@example.com to confirm your booking.
If needed, the Bruins will be hosting back-to-back games in their series against Napanee. Game 4 is scheduled for Wednesday, March 27th, in Uxbridge at 8:15 p.m., and Game 5 will also be at the Bear Den, at 7:45 p.m., on Friday, March 29th.
Game 6 is slated for Sunday, March 31st, at Napanee’s Strathcona Paper Centre, at 7:30 p.m. If necessary, Game 7 will be played at the Bear Den, on Monday, April 1st, at 7:45 p.m.
