That sounds like a wonderful event.  And $25!  Wow.  Wish I could be in Michigan.

George, just an FYI, from what i read, the $500 gold ticket guarantees you 2 autographs from EVERY player on the ROSTER, even if that player is not in attendance.  Staff will take your items to those players and return them later, plus autos from all alumni in attendance of the event.

I just spat out the press release…let me see if the Wings’ website’s presser reads differently…Nope :(

“If there are any current players that are not present at HockeyFest we will take your two items, have them signed by those missing players and return your two items to you at a later date. This will ensure that you receive two autographs from each player on the 2011-12 Red Wings roster. “
