Fighting Walleye president Derek Geddes is excited for the festivities. “We felt it was important for us to make our first ever home game a memorable one,” said Geddes. “We've long been planning on our first home game being played in front of a jam packed crowd, with an incredible atmosphere. With the current situation being what it is, we needed to find another way to make that happen. I think it is going to be a special night. We can't thank our sponsors enough for making this possible, and we hope our fans from Oliver Paipoonge as well as the city of Thunder Bay come out and enjoy the night,” concluded Geddes.

The puck drops at 8 PM. The parking lot will open at 7 PM, and the club advises fans to get there early as parking spots will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. The fireworks display will begin shortly following the game, which should end around 10:30 PM.
