RHODE ISLAND--PHILLY FUTURES SHOWCASE A HUGE COMPETITIVE SUCCESS
300 GAMES PLAYED IN 10 VENUES
The EJEPL hosted their annual RI-Philly Futures showcase over the Sept. 21-23 weekend and it was a great competitive success. "Many of the games went into OT, or were 1-2 goal games" stated Vice Commissioner Larry Nastasi. With games at Warwick, West Warwick, Smithfield, Cranston, Brown University and Conn College the northern group played in many older barns. In the South, the venues were Ice Line, Ice Works, Igloo Ice Center & Revolution Ice Gardens. The regular season standings are taking shape in the youth levels with the futures now done with their 2 showcases and having played at least half their EJEPL games. The Diamond level's second showcase will be held in the Philly area Oct 19-21. The venues in the 2nd Diamond showcase will be Igloo Ice Center, Ice Land, Ice Line, Ice Works, Revolution ice Gardens, Patriot Ice Center (The Pond) and Hatfield Rinks.
The EJEPL wants to thank the Supervisors at each venue----Steve Kauffman, Brandon Kauffman, Stephanie Roos, Larry Nastasi, Barbara Young, Jeff DeSalvo, Jay Provost, Vin Hellemeyer, Sean McQuade, and Rob Scheer.
