Summer is officially here! School's out and the days are long and hot. The Bowie Ice Arena has begun the process of rebuilding the ice and practices for BHC's travel teams will begin in just a few weeks. For those of you counting the days until you're back on the ice, Red Army, the documentary about the Soviet hockey team during the Cold War is available on DVD and BluRay and for purchase on iTunes. BHC will have two copies to give away at the Open House event on September 19th but don't wait to see this incredible documentary!
