Post #6

I am working hard on my project. Last week was a little slow because I had to focus on studying for my midterm exams. Now I am back to business as the second semester begins. I have plenty to do, some of which includes contacting the directors of the sled hockey team and the wheelchair basketball team, talking to our schools athletic director, and finalizing the dates for these games. My project is finally ramping up, so I will let you know how much of this I actually accomplish by next week.

 Lots of work has been done and still needs to be done on my project. I got an email back from a coordinator for the Detroit Diehards basketball team. They are interested in playing in my charity event! I plan to make a call so that we can figure out more details over the phone instead of a bunch of emails.

As for news and information, I believe that most of the money will be brought in through tickets sells to attend the event and maybe a raffle. The game will most likely be in the main gym at my high school. I still need to talk to the basketball coaches to figure out a date that will work for them.

Instead of just hosting one event, the wheelchair basketball game, I now also plan on hosting a sled hockey game as well. I think this game will most likely be in March after states for our school's hockey teams. I have received an email make from a local sled hockey team, The Michigan Sled dogs, and they said they would love to play in this game to raise money for there team.

My project is on a roll now, as you can see, and there is plenty of stuff to do. This week my goal is to contact the head coaches to see when would be a good time to have their players participate in this event.

Sled hockey

  As a hockey player, I periodically check TSN for the latest hockey news. I just watched these videos and I recommend that you watch them too whether or not you are a fan of hockey.
