Minnesota State Fair Military Day 2011

Defending the Blue Line (DTBL) was invited to host a booth at the Minnesota State Fair on August 30, 2011 as part of Military Appreciation Day at the Fair.

DTBL hosted former North Star Great JP Parise (1:00-2:00PM) , and Minnesota Wild players Jeff Taffe (3:00-4:00PM) and Cal Clutterbuck (3:30-4:30 PM) . In addition to these appearances, DTBL will gave away 1000 foam hockey pucks, and visitors had the opportunity to shoot pucks on DTBL Founder and President Shane Hudella.

Defending The Blue Line is excited for this opportunity to further help military families and celebrate the service of our military heroes. Keeping the kids of military families focused and active in hockey is a great way to help keep their minds off of a parent’s upcoming deployment.
