1st and foremost, Happy birthday to CF. She's a soldier. Played with the big boys and got shoved around a bit but still got back up and fought through it. She wasn't scared of the bigger guys either. She pulled her weight.
Also another happy birthday to Matty. You left so quickly, you were forgotten in the mess of things.
The drills were awesome. We didn't have a lot of people so it was a bit tiring but it was a great work out for sure. I need to try and generate some more interest. I think for the time being, I've exhausted all my resources. Now it's just time to see who is able to join in.
The boys did mention trying to share the ice with some of the guys at Howa Sportsland as the ice at Osu Skate rink really is horrible. There are too many factors going into sharing ice time with teams.
1. Will they want to play with us?
2. Do they only want to practice and NOT have a scrimmage (as odd as this sounds, some clubs do that)
3. Can people make those times?
If we can't generate enough people to go during those times, we still have to foot a huge bill when not many can make it.
I'll leave it for the time being. Right now, the focus is to get more people to join in. I have something in the background for those clubs but it will take time.
As for the practice itself today, it was great. It's nice that we have everything run quite smoothly and it was very competitive out there tonight. A little more aggressive than last time. We're not looking to send someone to the hospital, but it's good to have some contact. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!
See you guys on the 30th.
