A brief history of Moosefest.
The concept began way back in the 80's with the formation of the Shootout of the Superstars. The idea was to have a figure skating competition where the skaters are judges and coaches, and the coaches would compete against some of the skaters. We even had school figures in the first few years. The general concept is still the same but now the only rules are a 2 minute time limit. This is due to the Jimmie Santee fiasco a few years back when he performed? an 8 minute program. When I returned to the Park Ridge park District in 2007, I wanted to recreate a fun day for the skaters like we used to do when I trained in Janesville Wisconsin. The first Winter Moosefest in 2008 featured the Shootout of the Superstars, foam ball hockey, and broomball .ln 2009, I decided to take the idea one step farther and formed teams to compete throughout the day. The Gorillas, led by Team Captain, Chris Santee, and MVP Eric Levine were crowned the first official team champions of Moosefest. 5 teams competed for the newly created Bullwinkle Cup.
By popular demand, a Summer Moosefest was introduced in June of 2010. Events included a Bubble Hockey Tournament, Volleyball, a Nickelodeon style obstacle course, and a Scavenger Hunt which was another event that had run on it's own in previous summers. Teams increased to 8 and there were over 70 competitors. Chris Santee's team, this time named Drakkar, once again claimed the Trophy. Chris, Katie Goodwin, and Megan Hyatt, are the only competitors to have their name on the trophy more than once.
The 2010 Winter Moosefest was the largest yet, with 9 teams and over 80 competitors. Teams were now placed in Divisions to make the competition more fair and fun.Evil Empire ended Chris Santee's streak of Championships. The other Division winners were the Jets and the Crunch.Events held were the Shootout of the Superstars, Snow Football, Foam Ball hockey, and Broomball.
Some notable competitors through the years include, Robert Morris University Goaltender, Eric Levine, Olympic Silver Medalist, Paul Wylie, Current National Champion, Ryan Bradley, 2 time National Pairs champion, Rockne Brubaker, National Dance Competitor, Collin Brubaker, 2010 State High School Volleyball runners up, John and Matt Butch, and Dan Godlasky, Cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point.
