Ghost tours at the fort
Calling all ghost hunters. Fort Caspar Museum and the Casper Area Paranormal Seekers are again joining forces to offer two weekends of “Ghost Tours of the Fort” on the evenings of October 18 and 19 and 25 and 26.
The hour-long tours will begin every twenty minutes with the first tour leaving at 7 pm and the last leaving at 10:40 pm each night. This is a ticketed event, and advance purchase is highly recommended. The $7 tickets are available for sale at Fort Caspar Museum and will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
The Ghost Tours will occur at the following times each night: 7 pm, 7:20 pm, 7:40 pm, 8 pm, 8:20 pm, 8:40 pm, 9 pm, 9:20 pm, 9:40 pm, 10 , 10:20 pm, and 10:40 pm. Only 10 paces are available for each hour-long tour.
This is not a haunted house kind of experience. On the tours, the Paranormal Seekers will demonstrate how they use detecting equipment to find evidence of paranormal activity in several of the fort buildings. Ticket holders should dress warmly for walking between the fort buildings outdoors in the dark, and bring a flashlight and a digital camera if you wish. Children under eight years of age are discouraged.

Rec league for middle school hockey
The Casper Ice Arena announces the Casper Recreational Hockey League (MiSHL) for middle school age youth. An alternative to travel sports, the non-checking MiSHL offers youth, ages 11-14 years old, training and competitions at the Casper Ice Arena. Practices and games are scheduled 3:15 and 5:15 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, November 5 through January 30. No practice or games are scheduled during holiday breaks from school.
MiSHL is designed to introduce athletes to ice hockey. The league anticipates youth with little skating or hockey experience and those interested in a short season (12-weeks) to join the fun. “Our goal with this program is to provide an ice hockey experience to more athletes, introducing an alternative to other mainstream sports,” says director of Casper Skating School, Chad Green.
Registration for this middle school league is at the Casper Ice Arena or online at www.activecasper.com. Search “MiSHL” and register for the team of your choice. The fee for the league is $195 ($175.50 with a skating pass) at the time of registration. Players are responsible for their own protective equipment. A uniform (jersey and socks only) is provided by MiSHL.
A full list of ice hockey protective equipment can be found online at www.casperwy.gov. Call the ice arena at 307-235-8484 for more information on hockey, figure skating, classes, birthday parties, public skating and other fun things to do.
