Satellite Hockey 2001 is a GO!

Peter Pedone from the alumni house informs us:
I am writing with the GREAT news that Satellite Hockey 2001 is a GO!!!!
The telecast will originate from Clarkson's Cheel Arena, in lovely Potsdam, New York, on Saturday, February 10, 2001. The game will begin at 7:00 p.m. (EST) with pre-game beginning at 6:45 p.m.
We will continue to use the C-Band transmission, at least for one more year. We have thoroughly investigated the smaller, non-steerable KU-band satellite receivers and unless we pay to be listed in a subscribed sports package (and chances are that there would be an NHL game on a Saturday night, so we would be bumped from transmission), there are few options. We have not given up and are still investigating options, but for 2001, we are retaining the C-Band technology.
