I must say the Anaheim Ducks and their players are truly a first class organization. Today I attended the First Flight Field Trip with my son. I had suggested to one of the teachers at his school (Michelle Kauten) that the children attend this event. The Ducks put on quite a production for the kids. It was entertaining, educational, and most importantly captivating. There were over 16,000 in attendance and to keep them entertained over a 3 hour period is no easy feat. The event was free and they gave away posters to all in attendance. The Ducks even gave away a team signed and framed jersey to a lucky child.
Our bus was late so as we waited outside we saw a couple of Ducks players leaving. I was quite impressed that Kent Huskins and Chris Kunitz signed autographs for everyone that wanted one. The kids were very thrilled to get their posters signed.
The Ducks put on so many great events throughout the community and for season ticket holders and kids club members. I can’t imagine any other hockey club doing a better job than they are. Tomorrow night my son will be the honorary Duck and gets to sit in the penalty box for pre-game warmups. I am looking forward to that.
Below are some pics from some recent appearances the Ducks have made.
