AMARILLO, TX – It’s getting closer…

The Amarillo Bulls 4th opening weekend in the North American Hockey League is now five days away and counting. On Friday and Saturday the Bulls will host the Odessa Jackalopes at 7 pm at the Budweiser Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center.

The build up and activity begins tomorrow (Tuesday) night with the annual Season Ticket Holder pick-up Party in the North Exhibit Hall at 6 pm.

Friday is opening night and billed as ‘Bulls Buck Bash’ and it features $1 hotdogs and $1 sodas, while the first 500 fans will receive a magnet schedule. The Bull will drop the puck on their 13-14 home schedule and face their first South Division opponent the Odessa Jackalopes at 7 pm.

The Championship Banner raising ceremony takes place on Saturday at 7 pm prior to the second game of the weekend between the Bulls and Jackalopes.
