It\'s a Hockey Day (Actually Two) in Washington County, PA
The road to the 2010 Stanley Cup, asserts J.R. Shaw, executive director of Washington County Tourism Promotion Agency (WCTPA), starts in Washington County.

On Wednesday, September 30 and Thursday, October 1, the team is inviting the public to attend two practice sessions totally free of charge at the Iceoplex @ Southpointe.    

“It’s an opportunity for fans to take their love of hockey to a new level.” Shaw says. “But we’re not stopping there. We’re also turning this event into a natural hat trick by adding a Penguins Expo and free public skating to the mix.”

Then on October 1 starting at 5 p.m. -- just 26.5 hours (but who’s counting) before the team’s season opener against the New York Rangers -- Washington County will shoot and score the winning goal by hosting the ultimate Penguins Pep Rally.  The pep rally will feature local bands Kardaz and The Long Time Darlings made famous for the black and gold pride infused in their music.

All events will take place at the Iceoplex @ Southpointe and are free to the public. In addition, official Penguins merchandise will be available for purchase, signed merchandise to win, and interactive games will be on site throughout the two days. 

“I think Elvis just left the building,” Shaw observes.
