Winter Cup South Eve

These are some of my favorite days of the year.....Schedule is finalized, teams are set and ready to go, and in about 12 hours I'll be on my way to Metro Airport to head to Raleigh, North Carolina for TORHS2Hot4Ice Winter Cup South.  Heading on the road to run events is always a great time, especially when Mike and George are coming along too.  Overall this weekend in NC should be another solid event with good friends and great hockey.  The only downside about these events is the 3 days away from my twins, but Facetime should make that a little easier.

This is the second event since the merger of our two companies, and with each passing day I get more and more excited for what I believe is a great future for both the company and the sport.  For those of you who haven't met Joe yet please do yourself a favor and have a conversation with him this weekend.  He has brought some amazing and innovative ideas with him that are going to maximize the experience of every team throughout the tournament season.   We have just over 30 teams competing this weekend at Dream Sports, but the best part for me is that we have a Cub division!  While it may only be two teams watching the little guys out there is always a blast.  

I'll be on the blogs all weekend so if there is something that you would like me to cover, a particular game you'd like info on, etc. please feel free to email me at
