From T: I know the season is still 31 long days away, but when do they start laying down the Ice? That’s when I really start feeling like the games are just around the corner. Also, will you be posting video of the ice going down?

We’re glad you’re excited, and we can’t wait either! The terrific ice staff at Rabobank Arena will lay down the ice on September 23, and training camp will begin October 1. There will be video up on Condors.TV so you can see what goes into getting the ice ready for another exciting season of Condors hockey. Hang in there, the season is right around the corner!

From Tom: Just read about the All-Star game format and saw the jerseys. Nice concept. Now I’m REALLY looking forward to the season and the All-Star game!

From Josh: How do we have to be dressed for the job fair?

Josh, it’s always a good rule of thumb when going for an interview that you look as presentable as you care to have your prospective employer see you. It’s better to over-dress than under-dress, so I’d leave the jeans with holes in them and your Nirvana t-shirt at home. We won’t say that you need to wear a suit, necessarily, but I’ll put it this way: there will be hundreds of people there looking for a job, and only a few dozen people will be hired. Like it or not, that first impression you make is going to be the long walk from the seating area to your interviewer’s table, so make sure that first impression is a good one! Good luck!
