    Right now we need all the help and volunteers we can get. Don't shut anyone out and don't get greedy just yet. Let's get everyone we can involved and "locked-in", they'll join when the season rolls around. Wait until the season is here before considering that sort of action.
    You're right, Doug.

    I do think we need one BLC-only meeting at some point over the summer, if for no other reason than to discuss an organizational structure. I loved how everyone talked about committees and subcommittees as if we had any of either...

      Hopefully we can get some of those people on actual committees soon...

            Stuff has come up, and it looks like we're not going to make it. Bummer.

              We also didn't get our membership cards, and no sign of the shirt either, but at least we got into the program. Though your statement answers a question that's been nagging me about why some names didn't seem to be on the list, and why it was so small in the first couple of programs of the year.

              We pay in September, yes before the season, but it was the same day we picked up our season hockey tickets which I think is a perfectly reasonable time to cut both checks, so there needs to be some clarification as to when the checks will be accepted for the upcoming year. The fiscal year is October 1, but it's not that hard to hold the checks (and paperwork) until the new year if it's a matter of making sure the accounting is correct.

                I'm glad to hear everyone's issues with this year's BLC, even though I'm certainly not happy that folks are having them. I don't know where the balls were dropped, but I'll find out. This is actually making the case for an off-campus, 501(c)3 organization.

                  Don't take this to mean "oh God varsity hockey is dead at UAH". Johnson said in his first-stage interview that no AD would save UAH hockey, and that it would come from outside forces. He's right about that.

                  I'm hearing enough good things about how the shakeout will happen out west that I'm very confident at this point. I have a proposed solution that I'm finishing writing up.

                      Have you noticed that this year's recruits almost all have size and heft? That's something that was obviously missing against several teams this past season. We were an overall very small team with only average speed. In the past our small players were all speedsters. Speed can make up for size in alot of instances... not all, but alot. Small size and average speed obviously does not bode well for outcomes... Hopefully, this year's recruits will contribute early.

                        Unfortunately, this is the second year in a row that we've been traveling at Awards Dinner/Auction time. These are probably the only two we have ever missed. Geof, it would be nice if either you or Jamie would provide a report at

                          I believe we can do that one day next week. I'm out today and am pretty covered up tomorrow.

                          We'll have a BLC meeting early the week of May 2 [probably Monday, maybe Tuesday]. The coaches are heading to Naples next week for the AHCA meetings, which will certainly be interesting. We're also in the national signing period, so some of these verbal commitments y'all have unearthed should become things that the university can discuss.

                                Next BLC meeting is Monday 5/2 at 7:00 p.m. We'll have at least one more in May, probably on a Tuesday night.
