The bout will begin at 7 p.m. in Oswego’s Crisafulli Rink. There is no set admission fee, as attendees are asked instead to bring unused school supplies to benefit the local Stuff A Bus project that provides supplies for local school children who can not otherwise afford them.

Oz also will hold a recruitment night to accompany the bout. The league is always looking for skaters, referees and other volunteers, and will provide training.

LabMan — the Academic Lab Management Conference — will run June 18 to 20 at SUNY Oswego and gather professionals who maintain computer workstations at colleges, universities, school districts and libraries.
