NU Steel says thanks for support this year

To the editor:

We are are writing to the citizens of New Ulm, with a huge THANK YOU for welcoming us into your community! On behalf of our entire team, we really appreciate the support that you have provided to us. We came to your town as visitors, just to play the game we all love. We were not sure what to expect though, moving in with strangers. However, you made us feel at home from Day #1, and we now think of you as friends and family.

We are on a 14 game winning streak, which has been incredible for all of us! The crowds have grown larger and larger, and you have helped up pull out some really close and difficult games — thanks for cheering us on and giving us energy when we were tired!

Without the support of our fans, our coaches, the arena staff, and our sponsors, our time in New Ulm would not have been as great as it has been. The biggest thank you goes out to the billet families! Opening your homes to us is really appreciated, and we know is not always easy! (Young men apparently are challenging at times, and we apologize for any stress or problems we we may have caused!)

Our last regular season game is this Saturday, at 7:10 p.m. We hope to see you there. We look forward to giving you our best performance! Thanks again!

Brian Oare, Michael Savelkoul, Jack Parks, and Keegan Bauman
