The Augusta RiverHawks hockey club is holding auditions for the “Hawkettes” promo/dance team Saturday, August 6, at 2 pm at The Dance Shoppe, 641 Edgefield Rd., North Augusta, SC. The dance team will be of volunteer status, but will include some incentives.
A dance team is sure to fire up the crowd when the season begins in October.
Another announcement that has come from the RiverHawks organization is tryouts for “Gus” the RiverHawk. Everyone from last season remembers the antics that are caused by Gus and Kenny Bobby.
Information on the tryouts is listed as follows from the Augusta RiverHawks facebook page:
“The official “GUS” auditions will take place on Saturday, August 20, from 12-3 p.m., at Dick’s Sporting Goods, at the Augusta Mall. The RiverHawks are seeking energetic, athletic, fun-loving persons who can “shake a tail feather” and interact well with fans as “GUS” the RiverHawk during the RiverHawks’ 28 home games and other promotional events throughout the year. Ice skating ability is a plus. All interested candidates must pre-register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 706-993-2645 for more information.”
So go forth Augustans and support your RiverHawks. It’s going to be a great season with some interesting additions to the organization’s format.
