Big Demand for Wings Training Camp Tickets

from the Traverse City Record-Eagle,
From where she stood Saturday morning, Gail Wrona couldn't even see the front doors of Centre ICE. "You have to admit, hockey isn't dead in northern Michigan," the Charlevoix resident said. "Especially with the Red Wings." Wrona was one of hundreds of people in line as tickets for the Detroit Red Wings training camp in Traverse City went on sale. When the doors for the first pre-sale of tickets for the camp - set for Sept. 13-17 - did open, Tim Glasscock of Rockford was first in line. Glasscock arrived and camped out beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday for the honor of being first in line. He admitted his devotion to the Red Wings was a little nutty. "Pretty much," said Glasscock, who was buying two tickets to the Sept. 16 Gold Medal game and for the Red-White Game the following day for him and his wife, Katherine. "Crazy for the Red Wings ... you know." He wasn't the only one.
