It is a couple days after the first annual “BC’s 3 on 3 classic” and I am very excited about the future of the event. The tournament went off with very minimal interruptions. We did misplace 8 gold trophies, but we have since found those and corrected the mistake. The four Butler guys (Brian, Julian, Pete, and Nick Brooks) did a great job of officiating and monitoring the courts, also had a lot of other friends from high school as well as my folks keeping everything organized. I don’t believe I received any complaints and I can’t count how many people said they really enjoyed it. Even though we did not have as many teams as we were hoping for there were still a lot of people down there and it felt pretty full. Not to pat myself on the back but I am going to, but it would not have been so successful with out a lot of people behind the scene. I am just humbled that I have been able to use my name to promote a sport I love as well as help a great organization in the process. The numbers are not final but I believe I was able to raise about $1500 for the club, which any money was going to be great. I have made some notes on some improvements and I am ready for next year.
I’m not sure if many of you have heard but I have signed to go to Poland. Kotwica Kołobrzeg S.A is the official team name. I’m not exactly sure how to pronounce it yet, but I do know it is on the beach in North West Poland. I have researched it a little and know there is a large health spa around the town. Not sure on much else except I should have an extra bed if anyone would like to come and visit. I am going over there with two other players (Skip Mills, Drew Namiac). Skip played at ball state and I have known him for a while. Of course we had battles with the rivalry with butler and ball state and he is also from the Indianapolis area. Drew Namiac played at Michigan State and I just met him this year. He is a very strong center and a great passer; I look forward to playing with both of them. I am scheduled to head over there on August 10.
I will be heading to the jimmy buffet concert and a houseboat trip to Lake Cumberland this week which will make the last couple weeks fly by. The summer actually seems like it went by pretty slow. I was able to do a lot this summer so I am kind of looking forward to going back to Europe and experience another culture all over again. The next time this is updated I will be Poland telling you how crazy life is.
Until next time!
This is BC gone for now
