Meetings are held monthly on the first Tuesday at 6:30pm. Check the calendar or facebook for the location.
The Face-Off Club (FOC) is comprised of a dynamic and growing group of hockey fans! The mission is to support the Alaska Nanooks Division I hockey program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. This is achieved by fundraising and other activities which promote hockey; attract new fans; provide for the needs of the players, coaches and the Alaska Nanook hockey program. We strive for a fun and interactive atmosphere while raising funds. The FOC activities are designed to allow fans to mingle and get to know the Alaska Nanooks players and coaches. The FOC is a group of enthusiastic individuals and families and is governed by a Board of Directors. The annual election of the Directors is held at the May meeting with approximately half of the Board seats elected or reelected annually by a vote of all members present at the meeting.
