Hawks Seek Clarity from State Officials
Waterloo, Iowa - The Waterloo Black Hawks released the following statement and update related to home games scheduled for Wednesday, November 25th versus the Lincoln Stars and Thursday, November 26th versus the Dubuque Fighting Saints:
"The Black Hawks organization is reaching out to Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds for guidance regarding the implications of her new COVID-19 proclamation announced Monday. Since junior hockey is a unique classification which does not have an obvious parallel in other sports, we believe it is best to seek specific and direct clarification about the governor's intent.
While this dialog progresses, the Black Hawks are delaying ticket sales for home games on Wednesday, November 25th and Thursday, November 26th, which had previously been planned to begin at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, November 18th. At this time, a new 'on-sale' schedule has yet to be determined."
More information will be provided as soon as further details are available.
