Tara and Parrot Heads

The Binghamton Senators are home again tonight and tomorrow. It's the 3rd of 4 Friday and Saturday nights games at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena.

Tonight they host the Albany Devils on Faith and Family night. How ironic,  that it's the Devils on a night with some Christian festivities before and after the game. The Christian rock band New Method will perform a concert on the concourse before the game. There will be some activities after the game as well.

On Saturday, the Sens take on Hamilton. It's also Parrot Head Beach Party Night with the Pirates of the Susquehanna Parrot Head Club. Beginning at 6, it's a pre-game party on the concourse with Dos Guys performing til  7 p.m. and fans are encouraged to visit the tiki bar for island drinks.

The Pirates of the Susquehanna Parrot Head Club will be on the concourse raffling off gift baskets throughout the night. All proceeds from the raffle benefit the Binghamton Vet Center and Southern Tier Veterans Support Group. There also will be a post-game beach party on the concourse featuring the Susquehanna Rum Runners, the region’s premier Jimmy Buffet tribute band.

Also on Saturday the Broome Sports Foundation will present the 2013 Tommy Mitchell Memorial Scholarships in a special pre-game ceremony.  Six local high school and college students have been chosen as 2013 recipients; Melissa Ash (Junior, Buffalo State College), Joseph Eiskant (Vestal High School), Andrew Schutt (Vestal High School), Colin Szymanski (Maine-Endwell High School), Matthew Wagner (Vestal High School) and Robert Wassel (Vestal High School). 

Get there early on Saturday and get a Thunderstix. Face-off both nights is at 7:05.  I'll be doing Chuck-a-Puck tonight between the 2nd and 3rd period. To find out about more this weekend or any other B-Sens stuff go here.
