Exeter Cub Scouts enjoy Scout night with the Stars

Exeter Cub Scouts at the Stars Hockey game.

Bear Scout Johnny Babula poses with Lincoln Stars #24, Andrew Ammon.

Tiger Cub Jackson Beethe, waits in line with his mom, Jane Beethe, to
have a Lincoln Star sign his trading card.

Exeter Cub Scout Pack 218 enjoyed a visit to the Lincoln Stars Hockey game with their families. The pack met at the Stars Ice Box and watched the two teams warm up and then saluted for the flag ceremony.

The Stars played a great game, with one puck flying over the glass. Webelos Scout Travis Gilliam got the puck and the score was tied at the end of the regulation time. It remained tied after one session of overtime so it was off to a shoot out. Unfortunately, the Cedar Rapids Roughriders scored two goals during the shoot out and the Stars couldn't get it in the goal.

After the game was over, all of the scouts in uniform were invited on the ice to get autographs and pictures with the Stars players. The players were very accommodating and friendly with the Scouts.
