● Notes and assorted whatnot from one last day out at Kettler:

○ Looky ... new guys! [Caps365 video (Joey Crabb, Jack Hillen)]

○ Speaking of which, the Bears have released their 2012 training camp schedule. [@TheHersheyBears]

○ One more item - The Bears will play the Norfolk Admirals at the Verizon Center on December 6. If you're interested in attending, take a look here and let your voice be heard. [FanShot]

● Finally, Front Page in Ballston is hosting a "Hooray It's a New Season Boo It's a Lockout"-themed shindig this evening, starting around 7:00pm. Raise your glass, yo. [@FrontPageVA]
