Florida Regional Recap Great kickoff to the regional season here at the Skatium in Ft. Myers. Our first regional qualifier is in the books. It was a solid weekend in Southwest Florida. We had fun and certainly got to watch some exciting hockey. Here’s how each division played out. Mite Division - The Wellington Prowlers and Naples Lions are teams playing in their first NARCh Event. Their games with each other were competitive but when they played the Goalzillas and Lumpy Muffins the ga
Today came early, real early. The 3-hour difference is tough when you can’t fall asleep at night and have to get up at what is really 2:30am. Regardless, we’re about 5 games in here Saturday Morning and having fun. It’s always nice to meet new people excited about the sport. I’ve had some good conversations with some of the Wellington Prowlers Parents. It’s a 10u team and they just lost a nail bitter to the Naples Lions, 5-4. They’ve got their house league back headed the right di
What's going on with NARCh to start the regional season. Bring on the Regional Qualifiers! I’m currently flying to Florida to kick off the 2012 Regional Season. Literally in flight at 35k, thanks Delta! We’re heading back to the Skatium in Ft. Myers this weekend and start the season off right, with a completely full event and even some new teams in the mix, which is always exciting. I’m always pumped this time of year and can’t wait to get things started, but even more so this y
It’s Monday Afternoon and Winternationals has come to a close. I was honestly on the fence about adding this tournament and what pushed me to pull the trigger was the Roadrunner and Black Ice Programs committing to travel in if we did it. I guess I owe Vio and Jason an even bigger thank you than usual because they did bring all their teams as promised and the tournament was a big success. There are so many great people that helped make this tournament better by participating. I’ve known m
Well, yesterday was interest. From a spectator standpoint, it was awesome. Great games, excited crowd, happy kids and parents. We had some internally frustration because we thought we lost all of the footage that made up our day 1 highlight video. There was a lot of time and energy invested in it, so to say I was a bit bummed out would be a gross understatement. Luckily Jason Monroe from Alkali spent some time with Itan on the computer and they were able to recover the files and finally get the
We are rolling along here on a Sunday at the 2012 East Coast Winternationals in North Carolina. Kudos to Steve and his staff at the Dreamsports center as the facility has been great in creating a friendly and clean atmosphere for teams and fans. Besides the West Coast Winternational, this is the first event for most since the 2011 Finals. There is a great deal of momentum heading into this year as everyone came away from a great Florida event pumped up while looking forward to this summer in
Today started off much better for me than yesterday. Yesterday I was running around town looking to replace a lens and today I’m having a great time taking in the action while I’m filming and shooting a few photos. I love capturing some of the great moments and being able to replay them, whether it’s by a photo or the action on video. The weather is completely different than yesterday. Today it’s cold and rainy, yesterday it was about 65 and sunny. Either way it doesn’t matter much
Day 1 of East Coast Winters is in the books. The energy in the building was fantastic and the sponsor booths were packed almost all day. Tour, Alkali, Labeda, Revision, and IDI Photography are all present. I’d say one of the highlights of the day was the cub division. 3 local teams played and for all but a couple it was their first experience at a tournament. Not just the kids, but the parents too. The teams were very balanced, which helps create a great first impression. Nothing but huge s
