 SAHARA RESORTS BRINGS HOCKEY TO LAS VEGAS
 LAS VEGAS, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Sahara Resorts has started its


own professional ice hockey team. The Las Vegas Aces have been formed under the direction of Sahara Resorts Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Paul Lowden. Lowden says, "Due to the popularity of the Santa Fe Ice Arena, the formation of an ice hockey team is a natural progression for this property and a positive move for the community." The Las Vegas Aces are scheduled to debut Oct. 15, 1992. The Aces will join the Pacific Southwest Hockey League which was established in 1969. The P.S.H.L. is a West Coast league comprised of the Fresno Falcons, San Diego Surfs, California Hawks, Los Angeles Jets and now the Las Vegas Aces.
 Bobby Campbell has been selected as head coach for the team and is enthusiastic about putting together a solid, fast-paced, hard- hitting team. According to Coach Campbell, "Fans will be in for a great treat this season. They will see a highly skilled team competing in a high-caliber league."
 Training camp is set to begin Tuesday, Aug. 18 at the Santa Fe Ice Arena and will continue through early September with final team selection by mid-September. Watch for details regarding team qualifiers and game schedule for the upcoming season. Contact Jean Meeks, general manager for the Las Vegas Aces, at 702-658-4992, for additional information.
