Find Pucks for Prizes this Saturday, Oct. 1st and Sunday, Oct. 2nd
On Saturday, the Phoenix Coyotes will kick off a "Chill out with the Coyotes" fan event that will last through Sunday with stops at three local Fry's Marketplace Stores as well as Murphy Park and Tempe Town Lake.
Each visit to the Fry's Marketplace Stores will feature a two-ton mound of snow, which will be dumped on the ground. Hidden inside the 2000-pound mound of snow will be 51 hockey pucks. Children ages 12 and under will have the chance to dig through the snow and try to find one of the hidden pucks.
Children who find a black puck will receive two free tickets to the Coyotes game on Saturday, October 1, 2005 vs. The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. The lucky finder of the golden puck will receive a Coyotes youth jersey signed by Coyotes Head Coach, Wayne Gretzky.
Fans are encouraged to attend and join the Phoenix Coyotes broadcast team at the three Fry's locations as they sign autographs and take pictures. The first 50 people on Saturday to purchase a Coyotes ticket for any regular season home game from one of the designated Fry's locations, will receive a pair of vouchers for a free ticket to the Saturday, October 1, 2005 game against Anaheim as well as a free Coyotes puck.
"Chill out with the Coyotes" will visit the following locations over the weekend:
