I know I said updates would be spotty, but I won’t leave you hanging forever. Here’s a quick update on Hawks goings-on.

-Thanks to everyone who came out to Monday’s alumni association golf tournament. We had a full house and it was a great event benefitting a great cause. The tournament’s winners were the team led by Assistant GM/Assistant Coach Travis Green.

We had a great turnout from our alumni, with Paul Gaustad, Steve Konowalchuk, Brent Peterson, Brandon Dubinsky, Brendan Mikkelson, Mike Funk, Dan Da Silva, Grant Sasser, Marty Standish, Jason McBain and many others showing up. The guys seemed to be having a great time catching up, and it would probably be a safe bet we’ll be seeing them again at future tournaments.

-From the foreshadowing department: we’re anticipating announcing a “big” signing today or tomorrow.

-Unbelievably, training camp is just 10 days away. The guys report next Saturday, August 22, and hit the ice the following day. Training camp will include a new wrinkle this year that fans might enjoy, so keep an eye out for an announcement about that.

-With the start of training camp will also come the launch of the new-look (barring technical issues of course). We’re getting to the end of the process, and every day it seems new challenges present themselves. A co-worker likened the last days before a website launch to the last days before a wedding, and the analogy certainly applies. Well, except for an inebriated relative showing up and making an inappropriate speech. Hopefully.

Please make sure this iteration of the web site is Mac compatible. Previous versions have been troublesome at best.

Are any of the training camp sessions open to the fans?
