2012 Penn Trafford Ice Hockey Alumni Winter Classic 12/23/12

Hey Everyone,

I’m very excited to post this blog and have been working on it now for the last week. I put togther a simple Alumni Game that we played on the Penguins Pond located on the Southside’s Station Square at the Riverhounds new Stadium called, Highmark Stadium. The Penguins staff did an amazing job putting together the rink and it made for one amazing night for the Penn Trafford Alumni group. The reason I am posting this is because I had my film crew and two announcers help me out in what was a simple test run of a full 5 camera production of my Alumni game and I couldn’t believe how well it turned out! I have divided all the clips up into 6 segments and they can be viewed below:
