We received a voucher for Sens tickets and a Zamboni ride. It was a tough call, since Alex only has another few months of being eligible and loves the Zamboni. But Nathan was promised the next ride and so he will get to sit on the side of the machine as it cleans the ice.
I've let them know that Alex would be quite excited to ride the Zamboni as well (should a ride open up at the last minute) but if he doesn't get to ride, then he can watch the Zamboni and Nathan. Hopefully we don't get a disaster, but I think we'll be okay. Alex likes watching the Zamboni, even though he'll probably be a little upset that Nathan goes.
I hope Nathan doesn't freak out or get anxious. I think it will be easier for him if he has something to "do" so I've suggested that he bring a sign that says "Go Sens Go!" The crowd will like it and respond, so that will encourage him.
I'll let you all know how it goes.
