I have to say that the heat of Texas is quite overwhelming! Thank goodness that the AC is pumping here at the Dr. Pepper Center! They’ve created the perfect environment for hockey, rinks are nice and cool, the sponsors are putting on a great show in the lobby, and man is this place clean.
If you haven’t done so already, make sure to hit up either Chad or Eddie at the Tour booth and have them show you how to create your own custom glove. It’s a pretty amazing program, and the big screen monitor lets everyone in the lobby see your design as you go. Mission, Labeda, Revision, and Shark Tape all have booths set up as well showcasing their new product lines!
Reminder to all teams that IDI Photo has a booth set up behind the Arena rink. Have your players and coaches stop by to get team photos taken, they have some great packages available. We also have 2 on 2 and Skills Competetion sign ups going on right now at the Registration booth in suite 12.
On to some hockey talk…..Black Ice 93 in Midget is playing some of the best hockey of the weekend so far. Their PP has been flawless, so if you have them coming up in the round robin make sure to stay out of the box! FTB struggled against the Black Ice squad in Midget earlier in the day, but then came out flying in their 2nd game against Tour Excitement 92. Alex Aleardi led the way with a handful of goals (3 straight breakaways) as they bounced back and earned a 7-3 victory. In Bantam AAA, Green Eggs and Ham and Mission Coast 2 Coast had a great battle tied up 1-1 for the majority of the game. GE&H scored a couple of late goals though to pull out a W. In some other action the Colorado Crash Test Dummies pulled the win out over the Bender City Selects 3-1, STL Tour Blast 96 knocked off Wenship Athletics 4-3, and in Adult Bronze the Pounders squeaked one by against the Rejects 6-5.
