Each spring, a Blackhawks Roadwatch party is held at the Libertyville Sports Complex, in which team mascot Tommy Hawk and others associated with the franchise spend an evening with fans literally watching a Hawks road game on big-screen TV. And last Saturday, mascot Tommy Hawk showed during open-skate time at Glacier Ice Arena in Vernon Hills. According to a rink spokesperson, Tommy Hawk came up this way simply to meet and greet Blackhawks fans and skating enthusiasts, sign autographs and have pictures taken. Like at most rinks, much of Glaciers ice time is taken up by hockey, figure skating, and learn-to-skate programs. But the rink has set aside open skating time for the public on a regular basis. Though not always the case, the general schedule has open skating from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. on weekdays, and noon to 1:30 p.m. on weekends. There are hundreds of pairs of skates available for rent so if you dont have skates, thats not a problem. source:
