Tomahawks Announce 30 Day Experience Countdown

to the 2013-14 Season Home Opener


JOHNSTOWN, PA – The Johnstown Tomahawks are thrilled to kick off their “30 Day Experience Countdown,” beginning on Fri., August 16, 2013. In anticipation of the Tomahawks 2013-14 Home Opener and HockeyFest on Sat., Sept. 14 at the War Memorial Arena, the team will both host and participate in a variety of community events over the next 30 days. In addition, each day fans can log on to, Facebook, and Twitter to see exactly what the team has in store for this season through fun videos, photos, and player content.


During each of the next 30 days, Tomahawks players, coaches, and staff will be further discovering the region at a number of events throughout Greater Johnstown, including locations in Cambria and Somerset counties. The organization will take this opportunity to introduce the players to the community and say thank you for the tremendous support over the past year. A complete schedule is outlined below.


“Our current training camp roster consists of players from nearly every corner of the U.S., most of whom are just now becoming acquainted with Johnstown and the surrounding areas,” said Team President Rick Bouchard. “Each of these guys has already started to experience the overwhelming fan support for this team. Our goal is to fully introduce the players to the community. They are extremely excited to be a part of an area that loves hockey so much while also getting to interact directly with younger fans and charitable organizations over the next 30 days.”


One highlight of the countdown is the Second Annual Open House & Select-a-Seat Night on Wednesday, Aug. 21 from 5-8 p.m. at the War Memorial Arena. During this event, which is open and free to the public, fans will have the opportunity to officially meet the 2013-14 team. Fans can also explore different seat and ticket options, purchase season tickets, view and purchase new merchandise, enjoy a special kids fun zone, and listen to a talk given by Head Coach Jason Spence.
