Stampede Hockey Announces First Teddy Bear Toss, Presented by WIPEOUT COFFEE

Press Release sent to the World of Junior Hockey

 Cheyenne, WY:  The forecast is for a downpour of teddy bears when the first goal is scored by the Cheyenne Stampede in their game against the University of Wyoming Cowboys on December 15.  New teddy bears will rain down on the ice from fans in the stands.  High drifts are expected, as the teddy bears pile up.

The teddy bears will be donated to local charities just in time for Christmas.  Mark Lantz, General Manager of the Cheyenne Stampede, says he hopes the blizzard of bears will become an annual tradition.  “We want every child in Cheyenne to get a teddy bear for Christmas.  Our fans are the most giving and caring in the world.  Teddy bear drops are a hockey tradition, and we’re proud to bring it to Cheyenne!”

Anyone bringing a new teddy bear to the game on December 15th will get a dollar off their ticket, Lantz added.

There is a regular season matchup scheduled the week before the teddy bear blitz.  The Stampede are hosting their most fierce rivals, the Boulder Bison on Saturday Dec. 8th, with the puck dropping at 7:35pm at the Cheyenne Ice and Events Center. As always they will be inviting fans of all ages to join them for the post game skate, sponsored by Chick-Fil-A.

The week after that, on December 15th, watch for flying teddy bears in the Cheyenne Ice and Events Center.
