This Season The Roanoke Valley Vipers :00 announced tonight that they have
dropped ticket prices three dollars a
ticket in both the goal and the center
ice sections.

That means they are now $9.50 in
the goal sections and $12.50 in the
center sections.

They won't know if it makes a
difference until a week from tonight
when the Vipers host Muskegon on

January 4th.
