16U.231In anticipation of our first AVA this weekend, the 16U (albeit with a very lean bench) took another road trip, this time up to Red Deer for some “friendlies” with the host Queens and NAVC Green. This meant some serious and valuable playing time for our players in attendance.  A very special thanks to Rob Meckling, head coach for Queens, his assistant and their team’s parents who provided a most gracious welcome to all of us.  (We’ll be coming back for soup!)16U.232
