The panel decided to move the band to the student section (approximately section 124) to get the band more integrated with the student fan base. The goal is also to create a greater level of volume coming from the student section and the band's involvement in cheers will aid this.
The panel also thought it would be helpful to distribute cheer sheets to all fans in the arena, so everyone can participate. Students will find the cheer sheets at their seats in the arena and for season ticket holders and general admission ticket holders should visit the promotions table on the concourse or see a Whittemore Center Arena usher, located at the top of each reserved seating section.
These ideas will be implemented for the remainder of the 2005-06 men's hockey season at the Whittemore Center.
