2. We have been averaging nearly 20 players the last 5 game nights with an influx of MHL in-line players and a group of new folks. On Friday June 3, we had 25 and split into three teams. It led to a very interesting, fast paced series of10 minute games that was quite a workout. we even dusted off the electronic scoreboard and somehow that got people to give that little bit extra. A great night of hockey.


3. NEW DATES Future Hockey- April 1, April 15, April 29, May 6, May 20, June 3, June 17, July 1 AND JULY 15 are all confirmed GAME ON at Musashi Urawa. We will take a break during the August heat and vacation season but be back in September. Would a third Friday every month be of interest to you? If so, please let me know as I have heard some whispers of interest


4. Yamato Cup T-Shirts.... I've got more available. They run small. I have a few left. There are a handful of XL's and a bunch of XXL's which are really the equivalent of L and XL. Check out the image on the facebook page- they are cool. JPY 1500 each. If you are sitting outside Japan wishing you had one, contact me and we can make it happen
