More than 40 FFA chapters from throughout Wisconsin were present for the 2011 UW-Madison Collegiate FFA Hockey Extravaganza. The event draws more than 1,100 FFA students and their advisors for an evening of pizza, music, games, and cheers ahead of the Friday night UW Hockey game. Because of the size of the crowd, the pre-game festivities were split between Ag Hall and the Ebling Symposium Center. This year, Ted Halbach, director of the Farm and Industry Short Course, welcomed the FFA members at both venues with some basic hockey instructions.
