black and yeLL

Monday, September 29

The home opener introduced some new talent for the 2014-2015 season.New into the line-up was Wade, Rob, Logan and Jesse and Curtis all making their regular season debut.  Great turnout with 14 players showing up for the Sunday nightBarn-Burner in Blackfalds! 

Prior to the game starting, it was a difficult warm-up. Bobby was testing out an 87 flex Bauer and let a wild wrist shot go and hit the goalie Jesse hard in the helmet.  Jesse got shook up a bit and said he had a ringing sensation in his ear well into the first period. The first period proved to be a tough one, and the boys went into the half down 6-1

In the dressing room there was a lot of motivational talk going around. Jer reminded us that we are a last period team. George explained that we had them right where we wanted them. Using our "Rope & Dope" technique to tire them out. 

The Crude Dudes came out flying in the second period getting two goals in the first couple shifts. They continued their relentless effort to get back into the game and with about ten minutes left in the game tied it up at 10 goals each. The Crude Dudes kept up the hard working effort and took the lead and kept it. Winning a huge comeback victory over Setter & Sons 12-11

Goals scored by:

Jason Holman - 3 
Jason Waterhouse  -2
Rob Bisio - 2
Dubes -1
Jer. N- 1
Donny ( "The Gazel") - 1
Cory - 1
George -1

Next game is Wednesday at the Centrium vs the Rusty Rebels. Be a ure everyone brings out their Friends, Girlfriends, Wives, and Children out to the Crude Dudes next home game which is a rematch against Setter & Sons as it should be another great exciting game!  October 5, Blackfalds Arena 9:30 pm

Season is just Starting but,where will it end??

The Season is just about to start, but where should it end? We have 2 options this year, both around April 10-15 2015. Dallas, Texas home to the Stars and the 50th Anniversay of the Acadamy of Country Music Awards which we could attend. Or the Home of Country Music Stars Nashville,Tennessee. Home to the Predators and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Both are amazing places to attend and prices are roughly the same at $1000/player and $800/guest. these prices include airfare,hockey tournament, hotels, breakfast every day and a team party. Not included would be NHL tickets Events or concerts. Nashville has lower bowel tickets for $139 that includes all you can eat and drink for example.
