From the Caps Newsletter

Maybe I'll see you there on Saturday!
Fan Fest

The Washington Capitals open training camp with a special Fan Fest beginning Friday, Sept. 14-16, at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va. Alongside practices and scrimmages that are open to the public and free of charge, fans can enjoy giveaways, player autograph signings, a town hall meeting and much more.

Below is a quick glance at what's on tap for Fan Fest: DC 101's Elliot in the Morning Show will broadcast live from 6-10 a.m. Fans will get the chance to skate for free during the show from 7-9 a.m.

Kettler Capitals Iceplex will host numerous fan-friendly activities and interactive games. The Hockey Hall of Fame trophies will be on display, along with face painters and a caricature artist.

The team will take the ice on both of the Iceplex' sheets of ice for the first practices of camp at 10:30 a.m. on Friday. Click here to see an expanded on-ice camp schedule.

Following practice, on-ice clinics with former Cap Joe Reekie and player autograph signings will fill the afternoon hours.

A special town hall-style meeting with chairman and majority owner Ted Leonsis, team captain Chris Clark and goaltender Olie Kolzig will make the first day of Fan Fest one to remember.

The opening day of training camp also marks the first opportunity for fans to purchase the Capitals' new red, white and blue jerseys. The jerseys, available for $115 at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, will be Rbk Premier Replicas without names or numbers; fans will have the opportunity to get the jerseys personalized for $60.
