Friends and Family Day on October 28
Schuylkill River will be hosting Baltimore-Chesapeake on October 28 in a Friends and Family Day Doubleheader at Pennypack that will also serve as a benefit for the family of Eric Hagen. Eric Hagen is the Captain of the Norfolk Blues and tragedy struck his family on October 2nd when his wife, Abigail, lost her life in a car accident. The Hagens have two young sons and all of the proceeds that we generate from this event will be donated to their college funds. Like the rest of the Norfolk Blues Eric Hagen is a tremendous competitor on the field and a great guy off of it. We all need to do our part to let him and his family know that he has our support in this difficult time.
All of the Schuylkill players will be asked to bring something small to contribute to our fan appreciation raffles and every fan in attendance (from both teams) will receive a free raffle ticket. Additional raffle tickets can be acquired by anyone, including the players, through a suggested donation of $5. We will also have a snack area set up to keep everyone fed.
The kickoff times for this weekend have been set at 11:30am (D2) and 1pm (D1). The field can be found by setting your GPS to 7800 State Rd and then looking for a small road called Pennypack Path to take you around to the field. President Codell recommends GPSing to “Panther East” and then looking for Pennypack Path directly across the street from them.
It was previously reported that the Boys and Girls Club would be joining us for this match but we have found out that this weekend is their Harvest Festival so they unfortunately will not be able to attend.
