Air Force coach Frank Serratore told the crowd that Monday’s 6:05 p.m. exhibition home game against the University of New Brunswick, two days after CC hosts the Reds on Saturday at World Arena, will be held as scheduled.
Many of the support staff will not be available due to the ongoing partial shutdown of the federal government, resulting in furloughs for 800,000 nationwide and huge gaps in the academy workforce.
“We may not have video on the scoreboard or a PA (public announcer) or the yellow jackets (ushers) but we will have a game,” Serratore said.
Both Falcons assistants, Andy Berg and Joe Doyle, are on furlough with Serratore and former Air Force player Eric Ehn, who is serving at Peterson Air Force Base, running practices, which begin in earnest on Saturday.
The Reds are flying to Colorado today.
