  • By Jeremy Ellis Sunday, Funday here in North Carolina as we embark on our final day of action at the 2014 North Carolina regional.  On tap today are 13 championship games, so the medal cart has been doing stretches all morning looking forward to some extended wheeling. One final is in the books with the Pee Wee Gold crown going to the Carolina Nightmare as they took down the Force 4-1.  The nightmare are a team to watch this summer and will be doing battle later today as they continue to play

  • By Lonny Lovins  It is nice to have some winners playing up here in San Jose this weekend, after the Sharks made dubious history this past week.  Our Nor Cal Cup finals kicked off today, and the games have been a good respite from what us Nor Cal people had to endure from our So Cal counterparts.  The Cubs are always a big draw up here, and they played their little hearts out in front of the biggest crowds.  As I have said many times before, I always look forward to seeing the future of our

  • 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. Team moms and managers are scrambling to get in paperwork on time and all the teams are looking really sharp.  Lots of sharp uniforms with some great styl

  • 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

  • By Lonny Lovins As we wind down here in Irvine, I am reflecting on a great tournament.  We saw a lot of great action on Sunday, and it makes me excited for the rest of the tournaments we have down the stretch.   There seems to be a pretty good buzz in the air about finals, and some of the new teams we saw are looking to make a mark in Florida.   Daryn hit on it earlier with his blog, Florida is going to be amazing.  Just being a part of the finals last year gave me a true sense of how a tour

  • By Lonny Lovins The weather has not been as warm as it was last year, but the hockey has been just as good if not better.  We wrapped up the Pro Division, Men's Platinum, and the Mite Divisions last night, and as always I will cover the play by play in my wrap up.  The finals last night provided a lot of drama, and I expect that today will also provide it's fair share of excitement. 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
