#PARTYZORD: The Brouwer Rangers / RMNB ‘Legends of Ice Dancing’ Tour de Pouwer (to support Friends of Fort Dupont Ice Arena)™ will be held this Saturday from 10 am to noon, and it’s stacking up to be pretty epic. You should RSVP to it and stuff. In addition to 2 hours of open skating time at Fort Dupont, we’re offering a mouthwatering bake sale menu and will be raffling off more than $550 in prizes (more on both later this week), all to raise money for one of the Capitals organization’s favorite nonprofits promoting hockey and other ice-based sporting activities in the community.

As if you needed more reason to attend, we’re also super excited to announce some special guests who will be partying with us.

Can you guess who it is? Go ahead, guess! (No cheating by looking at the headline of this article.)

Okay, we’ll give you a hint: It’s a safe bet he’ll be a better skater than anyone else there.

Nope, not Brian Boitano.

Here’s another hint: He recently had a career year.

Nope, not Matthew McConaughey.

He has a beef to settle with Ian.

Nope, not Steve Ells.

Give up yet?



Troy, as you may recall, made a fool out of Ian this past season.

After Ian foolishly bet us that Brouwer wouldn’t score 20 goals, Brouwer proceeded to score 25, setting a career high for a single season and surpassing 100 all-time career goals in the process.

So we got him balloons.

You know what happened next. (If you don’t know, take a second to catch up on the Ian Oland Apology Tour here and here.)

Troy and Carmen will both be on hand at #PARTYZORD to rub some final salt in the wound (or maybe drop some ice water on said wound) and, we hope, finally bury the hatchet.

The Brouwers, who you’ll remember matched our (your) donation to Fort Dupont last summer, will hang out, sign some autographs, take a few pictures, maybe even jump onto the ice with us, and generally have a grand old time as long as they can get to the wedding they need to get to that night on time. We’ll be sure to sneak Troy’s favorite song onto the playlist.

You’re not going to want to miss this!

    First Picture = Troy’s Invisible Shakeweight

  • He’s going to destroy me during my Ice Bucket Challenge isn’t he?

  • I’m just excited to wake up before noon on a Saturday.

  • My alarm’s set for 7:45AM. It’s going to be brutal.

    WooHoo!!! Guess I will have to bring my stick! 🙂

    My snarky side thought about making Salary Capcakes for the bakesale, with 1 capcake = $1m, visually representing each player’s cap hit with birthday cake numbers and different colored frosting on cupcakes. The armchair GM’s could finally buy out their (least/most) favorite players! And all for charity.

    But my snarky side and my cheery baking side don’t like each other and refuse to work together. And you’d need to make nearly six dozen cupcakes at that cupcake/dollar exchange rate. Which is a lot. And that’s if you only count the roster players.
    So… something else.

    Okay, my snarky side has been beaten and stuffed in the basement until we get another troll on the site.
    My nice side thought about Shepherd’s Pie in honor of Ovi and his dogs, but people will probably want something sweet. So, a dessert honoring each RMNB member.
    Ranger Ian’s Rock the Red velvet cake; I Can Hassett Cheesecake?; Angel Food cake for Rachel, because she seems like a very sweet person; Cherry Pie in honor of Chris’ cherry blossom pictures, which deserved an award; Igor’s Caps Victory Loaf; and I’m darned if I know what I’ll come up with for Fedor, but I’ll think of something. Suggestions welcome.

  • Fedor’s Fudge Brownies!

  • Sarah

    But isn’t someone already making Brouwnies? I don’t want to duplicate… does Fedor play chess? That opens up some possibilities.

  • DustinPenncakes

    Speaking of challenges, when is the game against Binky going down?

  • Sarah

    Oh, wait, it does work without poaching on Brouwer Ranger territory. FedFed Fudge it is! 😀 Thanks, Ian.

  • Jonah

    well this will be awkward when he’s traded…

    Sounds like it’s going to be a blast. Wish I could join you guys. Have a bit of extra fun for me, OK?
