If you're looking for some family fun this weekend, check out the 5th annual memorial skate for Rider Cupido.  This Saturday, February 1st 8am to 5pm.  Rider was a big part of the hockey community in Mandan and really loved the sport.  Rider tragically lost his life in a motor vehicle accident.  He was loved by many and is missed everyday.  As a father with a son who plays high school hockey, this is something that is dear to my heart.

This is an event to honor Rider and give back to the community.  There's so many activities for you and your family to take part in.  It all begins with a 3 on 3 tournament for Mandan Braves alumni from 8am to 10:45am.  Then there will be an open skate from 10:45am to 12:30pm at Cadillac Arena.  So grab your skates and your family.  Then the Tucker Burington Memorial Skills Competition will be going on from 10:45am to 12:30pm in the Buick Arena.  The activities will wrap up with Alumni/Youth games from 12:45pm to 5:00pm.  The University of Mary is donating game tickets to all participants.  The Marauders will play at 7pm.

There will also be a bake sale and silent auction all day, with a chance to pick up some really nice stuff.  So, join us for a great cause at Starion Sports Complex, located at 111 Old Red Trail, Mandan, ND 58554.

All proceeds will be funding the coach's room in memory of Rider and two $500 scholarships that will be awarded at the high school award ceremony.
