For the fourth year running we are organising a Redway Runner Social evening to watch the Milton Keynes Lightning ice hockey team.  The match is on Saturday 13 January 2018 versus the Dundee Stars.  The game starts at 7pm at the ice rink just behind “Argos” and “Toys R Us” near MK Central Station. MK Lightning have moved up to the top division of UK ice hockey (the Elite League).  They are doing surprisingly well against the country’s best with a rebuilt team that play fast, exciting hockey.  Let’s see if we can beat the 125 who attended last year!

We have managed to get an excellent discount on ticket prices.  Adults will cost £13 (instead of the normal £18) and children under 16 years of age will be charged at £5.  Those who have never been to ice hockey before are in for an evening of a fast paced, hard hitting game with the odd fight here and there!  The game will be over at about 9.15pm.  There is a splendid bar and good food and beverage facilities.  We will all be seated in a block together which will add to the fun.  To help those unfamiliar with ice hockey, I will circulate some basic information on what the game is all about just before the evening.

To book your seats please can you let Kevin Orchard ( know how many tickets you would like?  Bank transfers to Redway Runners account:

  • Sort code 301553
  • Number 42390360
  • Name; Redway Runners
  • (reference “ice hockey” please)

or a cheque (payable to ‘Redway Runners’) to Martin will secure your seats. Absolute closing date will be Wednesday 10 January at 5pm.

If anybody fancies it, we can skate for free after the game until 11pm, you just need to pay for skate hire on the night at £2.50 each.  For those not up for a bit of skating we will move over to Wetherspoons at 171 Midsummer Boulevard for a drink or two after the game.
