CL Rampage seek host families for hockey players

Published: Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014 8:02 p.m. CST

The Crystal Lake Rampage, a Minnesota Junior Hockey League team starting its first season in town, is looking for billet families to take in players for the upcoming season.

Rampage general manager Jim Pfaffinger said volunteers to house players are an integral part of the organization.

"As a billet family, you are a part of the organization and a very valuable one," Pfaffinger said. "In other words, without the billet families, we could not put a team on the ice."

The team needs several billet families for the 2014-15 season. Anyone interested may contact Pfaffinger at 815-355-1713.

The Rampage's season starts in September with games each weekend. The team will play at the Crystal Ice House and offer a junior hockey program in McHenry County, giving local players an opportunity to play two more years of hockey after high school.
