ICYMI: Air the Bear Tomorrow NightFans of the Trane sponsored Basingstoke Bison have been asking when one of the key events in our annual schedule will be held and we are pleased to confirm that our annual “Air the Bear” teddy bear toss will be happening on Saturday 22nd December 2018 at our game versus Invicta Dynamos.
At our home game on 22nd we invite fans of both teams to bring along a teddy and take part! Throw your teddy when the Bison score their first goal.
The teddy bear toss will be held in conjunction with our friends at Naomi House
‘Air The Bear’ - sometimes known as ‘Teddy Toss’ - is a tradition which originated in the Canadian game and has gained popularity worldwide, where fans throw teddy bears and other cuddly toys onto the ice when the home team scores its first goal.
There are two important points to be aware of before you “Air Your Bear :
• bears should be new rather than used, and
• they should be in a tied or sealed plastic bag, to avoid them getting wet and dirty when they land on the ice.
“We’ve been asked by many fans when our annual “Air the Bear” will be and we know this is an event that our fans look forward to - we can’t wait for this year’s Air The Bear to see those teddies raining down!” commented Bison’s John Neville.
So whether it’s a cuddly teddy or any other animal that you donate, get practising your throwing action ready for 22nd December!
