The Golden Gopher Blue Line Club is a strategic part of the team working to help maintain the high quality of the Gopher Hockey Men's Program. Blue Line Club activities such as the season home series Blue Line Luncheons/Chalktalks, the Kids Skate with the Gophers, the Alumni Game, the Annual Hockey Awards Banquet, and the John Mariucci Golf Open, help keep Gopher Hockey one of the premier programs in the country. Funds raised from Blue Line Club activities go directly to support the Gopher Hockey Men's Program.
And you can be part of it too! Join the team by becoming a Blue Line Club member and help support Golden Gopher Hockey. Enjoy our many activities and meet other loyal Gopher Hockey boosters while having fun and being part of a great team working toward a common goal:
A Successful Gopher Hockey program.
This fall brings some changes to the Club. Luncheons have been on a slow decline for years. Thursdays didn't work, and fewer people are able to play hooky to join us on Fridays, so we would like to introduce a revamped program...
Saturday (and Sunday) luncheons! Much easier to schedule guests, and hopefully, easier for you all to attend. We'll return to our favorites Jax and Mancini's, and maybe throw in someplace new. The format will be similar, Gopher Alumni and hockey favorites. Ticket prices remain the same $20/$25 non-member.
We're also planning Friday evening Chalktalks. We're scheduling these on nights where the Gophers play at 8pm. By joining us on in the Sports Pavillion Club Room you can avoid crowds at the eateries on Campus. You'll be right next door so there's ample time to get to the rink. Chalktalks will feature heavy appetizers, a cash bar, and appearances from the Hockey Coaching staff. Tickets will be less than for luncheons, only $10/$15 non-members.
