The Cornell Hockey Association is a community and University organization established in 1961 as the Ithaca Hockey Boosters Association to promote and assist ice hockey at all levels in the greater Ithaca area. Now 56 years later, the CHA continues that mission supporting the activities of the Men's Hockey Program at Cornell University.

This site is written by volunteers with basic skills and is updated as we learn by trying. If you are a Web-programmer or self-trained, computer geek with time on your hands and a fondness for Cornell Hockey, help us out! Contact us and help this site improve.

Colgate Bus Trip -- SATURDAY, January 20th, 2018

Colgate Arena

Colgate University ... Class of '65 Arena

Want to watch a great hockey game at the Colgate Class of 65 Arena? The CHA will organize a bus to Colgate on Saturday, January 20th, 2018. We depart Ithaca at 3PM from the C-Lot adjacent to Schoellkopf, along with the Pep Band. You can park in the C-Lot as there are no parking restrictions on Saturday. The bus will return to the C-Lot about 11:30PM.

The cost for the bus is $14; Colgate hockey ticket is $11. Here is a printable itinerary.

The bus will stop for dinner at the Curtiss Frank Dining Hall - their main dining facility on the Colgate campus at approximately 4:30PM and depart for the rink at 5:45PM. Puck drop is 7:30 PM so there should be ample time for dinner and a short bus ride to the rink. The menu offers a number of choices including vegan and vegetarian fare, multiple entrees, fresh salads, soups, pasta and wood-fired pizza. We have arranged for the $10 "all-you-can-eat meal".

If you are interested in taking the bus to Colgate, contact Sue Detzer or call her 607-280-4874. Please reserve by Wednesday, January 10th. Let her know if you will eat at the dining hall and if you need a hockey ticket. We hope you can join us to cheer on the Big Red at Colgate!
