Four Percent and some updates...on 2013 MFC


Did you know that the most read post ever at this blog has way over 7.000 hits and it is still (or right now) the second most popular post - on a day-to-day basis. It means that some 4% of all our hits is aimed for one post. We think that is well balanced and impressive - thanks to you.


Our main head ref for the 2013 MFC (April 13th in Tomah, WI), Mr. Buvarp from CO, now has his foot in a cast so we will try to use local referee pairs instead for all games in the 2013 MFC, since we do know that reffing is always a hard part. Let's see how this works out.. So all earlier mentions of a Ref clinic is not valid but we will have a refs meeting.
We have a sponsor, Exopack, that has announced its willingness to pay refs a symbolic fee, and if someone feels that he or she is a skilled ref, well let us know. The cool thing with Exopack is that they have operations in Tomah, WI, but also in Battle Creek, MI. Yes the very same Battle Creek, that invented some of the very first rules for Cosom Hockey. Is that not magic so say?
Right now we are almost covered with about 8 people willing and able to ref. But, to be fair, we are a bunch of happy and learning amateurs...

We still have consistent rumors that we might be able to pull together a mini youth demo tournament too as the 2013 MFC is played. We have Mr. Willy in charge of this and he is trying to pull this together. These games will be played after the main tourney and we will probably use no goalies for this and play cross court on a smaller surface, in a four by four format. We are certain that this would be a cool thing for the kids.

We still have plans to try to pull two female teams together for a demo game at 2013 MFC, it seems however like some ladies are working.. But even if we so use male goalies.. This is nothing we may promise yet, the estimate is that we have 6-8 girls at this point. We probably need 12 to make this happen in the best possible way... so the project is slightly pending. Sign up will be at the venue.

Then teams are becoming full and if you do not have a team and want to play - let us know now. There are a few loose players still floating around and in best case - maybe we need one more team. But we need some 4-5 more players for this and a goalie... Let us know asap... under the sign up tab..

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
