Edit: Added in political bobbleheads photo.
The Rivermen announced today the promotional calendar for the 2012-2013 season. There look to be some fun items on here in addition to the fairly familiar things given away in years past.
Oct. 19, 2012 – Opening Night means a magnet schedule (5,000)
Oct. 27, 2012 – Team calendar
Nov. 3, 2012 – Presidential Bobblehead Giveaway Night.
The Rivermen will have 1,000 bobbleheads of both President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney that will be given away at different gates. Fans can “cast their vote” by picking which gate they enter and which bobblehead they receive and the first candidate to run out will be declared the winner!
Nov. 10, 2012 – Hat giveaway night
Dec. 15, 2012 – Special jersey auction (design contest winner)
Jan. 19, 2013 – Zamboni bank giveaway
Jan. 26, 2013 – Ryan Reaves “bobblefist” giveaway
It’s a twist on the typical bobblehead where the head stays still while his fists move back-and-forth.

Feb. 23, 2013 – Team poster giveaway
