There are several promotions and special events for this weekend:
Beat the 'Nooks T-shirts:
Subway Promo:Get your official Beat the 'Nooks t-shirt for $5 at the UAA Campus Bookstore. The idea is to have a "White-Out" at the arena with all Seawolves fans wearing a white t-shirt.

Friday February 26, 5:30PM, Sullivan Arena

Reserved Seat game tickets can be purchased for $10. To RSVP the reception contact Tlisa Northcutt at 786-1211.
Tailgate party begins at 5:30pm in the Sullivan Arena parking lot, free food and drinks provided, brought to you by the Tailgate Crew & UAA Athletic Department. There will be a 6ft long Subway eating contest during the 2nd period intermission and Humpy's Rockband will play between both periods.
So there you have it. The salient facts you need to know in order to maximize your enjoyment this weekend. There are obviously good ways to get discounts on tickets if you don't have them already. So grab some friends and turn up on Friday. I'm not talking about 1 or 2 friends. Grab 4 or 5 or 6. Let's come close to filling the joint up a'ight? Seriously, if there was a game that should or could be close to a sellout this season then Friday is it. You know that local 'Nooks fans will be there in force and they're bringing a busload down from the Craphole-On-A-River.
