Here’s a sunny Sunday shout out to the great fans of the Iroquois Falls Eskimos.
The all-new Eskimos had a booth set up at the Iroquois Falls Sportsman Show, which was held on Friday from 5-10 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
Peddling season tickets for the 2015-2016 Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League campaign, small-town Iroquois Falls — population 4,500, give or take a few scoundrels who have scooted off to bigger, nearby Timmins — once again rallied behind its much-loved NOJHL team.
In just 13 hours, the Eskimos managed to sell 221 season-tickets for the 2015-2016 season.
But not surprising.
Afterall, during the 2014-2015 season, the Eskimos led the entire NOJHL with an average, per-game attendance of 513.
Which leads to the question — why would anyone doubt the good hockey fans of Iroquois Falls?
Good question with no good answer.
