Magnets, bands scheduled for Cottonmouths weekend

The Columbus Cottonmouths open the hockey season Friday night at 7:30 p.m. in the Columbus Civic Center. The first 2,500 fans will receive a magnetic schedule.

Something different is planned for Saturday night's home game. Several high school bands will perform throughout the night. That game is also at 7:30 p.m. It is Arthritis Foundation Night.

Fayetteville is the opponent both nights.
