Hockey Town(s), USA

Urban Plains Center in FargoLast night the University of North Dakota won their first game of the season, an exhibition match against the University of Manitoba.  The next two weekends are home games at UND, in the incredible Ralph Engelstad Arena.  And if you like hockey as much as I do, you'll want to visit another spectacular new arena just upstream.  The Urban Plains Center in Fargo is home to the Fargo Force, a new USHL team.  The Force play at home this Friday.  If that's not enough ice time for you, head west to Bismarck where the Bobcats, an NAHL team, return home October 23.
