WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Monday, June 10, 2013 – It's been five years since the Menace's last bobblehead giveaway. The wait will soon be over, Menace fans.
This Friday, we'll be giving away 1,000 bobbleheads of our lovable mascot, Maniac. Come early to that night's 7:30 match, to get your hands on one of these priceless mantelpieces. This one-of-a-kind keepsake will no doubt become a family heirloom that your family will pass along for generations to come.
Seriously, though, the weekend looms large for the Menace, and we hope you'll be part of the excitement. The rival Thunder Bay Chill invades Valley Stadium for a Friday-Saturday doubleheader. Saturday is Blackout Night, when fans wearing black (like the team that night) get in for only $5. Saturday is also Menace Alumni Night. We invite all former players and coaches to come back (please RSVP by emailing Adam Small at ajs@MenaceSoccer.com) for a celebration of the franchise's 20th season.
See you at Valley Stadium!
