The last year I worked this event some the guests besides the inductees they invited the Hanson brothers from the movie Slap Shot. Fun fact none of these gentlemen were acting in that movie, all of them are like that in real life. Fun to watch them pound back beers and have a riot of a time at with the Inductees and the other guests.
