But the biggest treat may have been the practice and intra-squad scrimmage put on by members of the Bismarck State College mens basketball team.
It was the return to Mott by recent graduate Cody Perkins, now a freshman on the Mystics.
The Armory opened its doors for the supper which relied on freewill offerings to support the Mott-Regent boys basketball program.

The scrimmage had a $1 admission fee or canned food donations.
The admission proceeds would be donated to the Mott Food Pantry, according to the organizers of the event.
Mystic coach Buster Gilliss and his assistant Eddie Collins put the team through a practice for a half an hour, before switching to a scrimmage.
The Perkins team in the scrimmage scored 25 points, beating their teammates by eight points.
The pancake supper provided a choice of pancake flavors, including chocolate and pumpkin.
When it came to gourmet toppings, the choices were even larger, ranging from peach, apple, orange, caramel, maple and chocolate. People could also add fresh fruit toppings such as bananas and strawberries.
After the end of the supper and the practice/scrimmage, the event concluded with a meal for the members of the Mystics and their coaching staff before they returned to Bismarck.
The team will open their season Nov. 1 in the Mon-Dak Preseason tournament in New Town against North Dakota State.
The Mott-Regent basketball season will start Dec. 2, with the first contents set for Dec. 12, according to the NDHSAA.
