This week’s #AHLFanFridays winners are the Feldman family, nominated by their father, Eric. "Self-professed hockey nuts," the Feldmans are long-time Charlotte Checkers fans who cannot wait for the team’s welcomed return to the historic Bojangles’ Coliseum this fall.
Our family is extremely excited for the upcoming season. As a family of self-professed hockey nuts, we have been long time supporters of the Carolina Hurricanes organization and the Charlotte Checkers. This year especially we are very excited as the Charlotte Checkers return “home” to the arena where they first played in 1956. We were not a part of the games back in those days, but at the time the arena made national news.
With major renovations and updates occurring we are counting the days down to their first home game on November 7th. Having been mostly NHL fans until a relocation to the Charlotte area, we are amazed at the dedication, professionalism and approachability of the AHL and its players and staff.
