Wow I hope they paid you well for that ad

Nope, just thought readers may be interested.

How about a name next time?

the advertisements on here are getting ridiculous

Great share Kevin. I live close by where the event will be and this is the first I've heard of it. I don't see this as an ad, rather spreading the good news about a great opportunity. Thanks.

NP Craig. Yeah not sure the criticism here. Steiner sports sent out the press release to basically every Rangers blog. Puck Central and Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants posted it yesterday and I put it up today.

I'm not getting paid to post it so it's not really an ad. Plus this isn't the first time I've posted about Ranger appearance and surely won't be the last.

I live in White Plains - only 10 mins away and would not have known about this event if not posted here.

Thank you for posting the info.

I'll back up Kevin on this, it's not an ad. I was sent it as a Press Release and thought it would interest some of my readers. That's why I put it up on my blog.

It is after all an event to meet many former NYRs and former star NHL players.

I had received this the other day and posted it and someone asked me if I knew the prices of autographs, so I did some research.

The list of prices can be found here -- https://www.lastlicksicecream.com/category_s/359....

The admission price is pretty much nothing. But, most of the autographs are going to cost you an arm & a leg.

Just thought I'd save someone the hassle of going all the way there to find out they couldn't afford a single big name autograph.

I WISH it were an ad and I was getting commission off of those signing fees ;)

In the link above after the "359" it should read ".htm" not "..." -- I guess it's a blogger think to modify long urls
