    Sounds good Doc.

    In his pre-dinner remarks Coach Smith went out of his way to acknowledge and thank the players for their commitment and determination during a difficult time in their college careers. The squad left today for a week of team building in the wilds of Ontario. Here's hoping they brought enough bug spray !

    Dino Macaluso ran the memorabilia auction. And before auctioning off a framed / signed Oates sweater from his personal collection, Dino wasn't shy about let everyone know that he wasn't a fan of Oates' recent public comments.

    Random observations: Burke is an extremely large individual ...can't wait to see him in pads. If he plays with the edge he's reported to have, he's gonna be a handful in front of the net. Ditto for Linden Marshall. He is a big boy - stockier than Perry - NHL big. He crushed a tee shot about 310 yards for us in bare feet, so I like him already!!
    Completely agree WS.

    IIRC, Coach Smith said, at our table, that 48 people comprising the Team & 60 family members & fans are signed up for the trip ATT. Even the Ohrvall family from Sweden will be there. Sounds like RPI should have a very nice rooting section.

    I don’t think so. Not renewing my season tix but I’m sure I’ll go to some games, ND for sure. I sat at the table with Coach Smith & family & found him very enjoyable to talk with. I go to also get a look at the incoming frosh & talk a bit with them. I even told York about how you & I discussed him several years ago.

    Chase and Meirs were at our table for dinner. I asked Chase if he had begun any stretching routines in preparation for the season. He replied "Nah, I'm pretty flexible naturally", to which I shot back "HA! Good luck with that 10 years from now".

    Was it a few years ago? I thought that it was when his team played Bendorf's team in the NAHL last season. I could be wrong.

    Edit: You are correct.

    A message from me quoting earlier ones:
    I understand the reference to Allen, but Troy New York would be unique. 
