On a Clear Night in Clintonville, the Stars go Dim!

Approximately 30 Blue Jackets fans gathered to watch a thrilling season opener as Rick Nash roofed the game winner in overtime.  The pot luck feast was a satisfying beginning to a great night. The menu featured mac and cheese, cherry pie, macadamia white chocolate chip cookies, cocktail weenies, spaghetti salad, grilled turkey, cheese, salami and crispy hot dogs to name a few.  The picture on the big screen was as clear as the sky.

Risto Petman looked as happy as Rusty Klesla after Rick’s winner when his number was called as the winner of the team signed jersey.  What a fantastic event to begin the season.  Thank you to everyone that attended and contributed to the fun.  Hopefully, this is the beginning of a season of great events that even more will enjoy!!
