  • Carl Bloedorn - 1997
Bloedorn is a native of Fond du Lac and served in many capacities to the sport of ice hockey throughout his lifetime.  One of the “old-time hockey people”, Bloedorn’s hockey career began on the frozen rivers, ponds and lakes in the Fond du Lac area and spanned three decades as a player, referee, fund raiser and builder for the Fond du Lac Bears and the Fond du Lac Blue Line Hockey Club.

As a referee, Bloedorn worked from 1939-1972 in the Wisconsin Senior Amateur Hockey Association, the Rock River Hockey League, the Wisconsin State League and the Wisconsin/Michigan Hockey League.  For many of these years, Bloedorn worked unpaid as an official and even traveled with the Fondy Bears and helped with the teams travel expenses.
 
As a builder, Bloedorn was instrumental in the fundraising and construction of the first indoor ice arena in Fond du Lac.  Bloedorn helped build and paint the original boards as well as the building itself and signage for the arena and the concession stand.  Charles Bloedorn is truly one of those old-time hockey people who helped lay the framework for the growth and success of hockey in Wisconsin as it exists today.
