Its all about your goals
Members will be pleased to know that all teams are now sponsored after Terry's UPVC Doors and Windows happily stepped forward to support the Hill Cove Hurricanes. This is great news and hopefully shirts will be here for the season start, but no panic if they are not.
Regulation goals have been arranged and now with South Atlantic Trading who will soon be forwarding these on to the Falklands again hopefully in time for the season start. SAAS and Frank O'Sullivan have assisted in purchasing these so thanks goes out to them. Ice Locker have been fantastic in ensuring that the goals are delivered to us and would love for us to snap the goals in action for their own marketing which we will happily provide. Discussions are in place with Ice Locker to assist with supplying the Falklands team looking to attend the ISBHF World Championships in Czech Republic in June 2017.
This leads me onto the news that ISBHF have now officially added Falklands Xtreme Sports to their membership and our details are on their site for all to see, check this out at www.isbhf.com. We will now be mixing it up with the big boys :)
Communication is still being had with the Pittsburgh Penguins and it is hoped something can transpire there, they have been brilliant and were overjoyed to hear of our support of the Penguins in the Stanley Cup final. Falklands Xtreme were tweeting during the cup final and chatting with Penguins Live radio who were also chuffed to hear of our support. Penguins winning it was brilliant and would be epic to have some of the players and coaches of the Stanley Cup team arriving in the Falkland Islands and imagine the PR stunt getting a picture of them with a real life penguin :)
Once the ball hockey is underway and moving along nicely then all hands will on the deck to ensure the skate park is designed, developed and then constructed. This is a very exciting venture and would be the first skate park in the Islands and would allow the young and old a new venue to get together and enjoy themselves. Which if you live in the Falkland Islands you will notice entertainment venues are few and far between! We at Falklands Xtreme Sports hope to put a little dent into that :)
