The Washington Capitals hosted their annual season ticket holder party at Six Flags America on Monday, October 18, 2010. The party was originally scheduled for last Thursday, however, the Caps postponed the festivities due to a forecast of inclement weather.  It was a good decision on their part as the weather would have put a damper on the fun. Only downside of moving party meant no Ovechkin or Varly since they were already committed to a commercial shoot at ESPN in Connecticut.

As the saying goes, "The Show Must Go On!" and it definitely did.  The party started at 5:30 p.m. and player autographs didn't begin until 7:00 p.m. so to pass the time, many players took advantage of the rides.  We heard of many lucky Caps fans riding on the Joker's Jinx with Laich, Fehr and Flash and the Thomas Town Train with Tom Poti.  And if you were in "Gotham City" around 6:00 p.m., you may have seen the "Skycoaster" in action.  Check out the pictures below of the great evening.
