First to lace up their skates and take the track will be Grand Raggidy’s All Stars and Team Michigan. Can the All Stars hold their own up against some of Michigan’s best? It was a neck-to-neck game up until the last moment the last time these teams played against one another. The score of the game ended with Team Michigan 182 to Grand Raggidy 136. The All Stars have been training hard and are more determined than ever to finally defeat the notorious Team Michigan. This is going to be one hell of a game and you’re going to be on the edge of your seat. In a grand finale, Grand Raggidy Attack! will bring all that they have against the malicious Ypsilanti Vigilantes. The Vigilantes are the Ann Arbor Derby Dime’s B-team, therefore they will be trekking it all the way from Ann Arbor to Grand Rapids. In 2014 these teams played against each other and Attack! Won 264 to 116. This year Attack! has a 91% chance of winning, but 2014 was a decent amount of time ago and new skaters have come in while older skaters have moved up, so it is really anyone’s game. You will want to be there front row to see how this game will play out.
Our theme for our last home game of the 2016 year is “naughty or nice”. This is a family-friendly game as well, so bring your entire family, kids and all! Dress up as Santa, an elf, or anything you want to! Wear your favorite sweater that has those cute little reindeer on it. Get into the season the right way with Grand Raggidy! The Packs of Love raffle is still on for this game. If you purchase a raffle ticket, the donation goes towards providing gifts that will be hand-delivered to veterans in the Grand Rapids community. The winner of the raffle will win a seat in the VIP section and two complimentary tickets. This is also the last chance for you to vote for the Golden Boot award, as it will be given away at this game!
