Wilderness Walk: 8-2-2013

Is it October yet? - Jared Wickerham

It's more than just Tyler Cuma!

While we're a too-long two months from the season, here's something to get excited about:

On Saturday, August 3rd, at Ridder Arena, Defending the Blue Line - an organization that donates to keep children in military families connected to their favorite sport - will be putting on their charity game. Tickets are 10 dollars if you buy them here. You can also purchase tickets that will enable you to get autographs after the game. If you can't make it to the game, you're very welcome to donate tickets back to Defending the Blue Line, where they'll be given to military families. The game will also be streamed online. For more information on Defending the Blue Line, please go to their website.

Now on to the Walk.
