  • By Jeremy Ellis Good morning folks, from sunny North Carolina!  I have to say after the winter I have had to go through in Chicago this year, coming down to NC is an awakening!  The weather is beautiful, the rink is BUZZING, and the people are awesome.  The Dreamsports  Center is pristine and ready to welcome a bevy of NARCh constituents.

  • By Lonny Lovins  The tournament here in Irvine wrapped up last evening, and it was a good one.  I really enjoy coming to Irvine, the city is nice, and the rink is really well run.  Everyone is helpful and quick to jump if you need something done.  The team working at the Rinks, works just as hard as the teams on the rink.  A big thank you to Eddie Limbaga’s staff for helping us run smoothly.  I have my new Rink Rat “Identity” wheels.  I will put them to the test tonight, and let eve

There have been a lot of "upsets" throughout the tournament, with some teams that got shelled by a team in the f

  • I’ve left most of the blogging recently to Lonny Lovins and Jeremy Ellis.  They’re both solid writers and give some good perspective, but I thought I’d at least chime in with some random thoughts from Irvine.Every year this is one of my favorite tournaments.   There’s something special about the great weather and open air of So Cal that makes this tournament and this facility a great place for inline hockey.  I consider this almost a home tourney since it’s 1 of only 2 tourneys I

  • By Lonny Lovins  While we definitely need the rain in California, we don’t need it to wash out the tournament for us.  So far, the rain has been kept off the floor, and we are hoping, it remains that way through the night.  Under the canopy here in Irvine, things have been moving right along.  The hockey is always fast down here, as teams gear up for the big finale in Florida.  Southern California provides some of the better teams we see when the finals roll around.  With the talent I ha
