Back from Break

Hey there everyone, Donnie back again to sum up the last few weeks. Since the last time we spoke, I have been responsible for most of our community development opportunities. This entails corresponding with organizations about donations, looking for community appearances and contacting the correct people to get these things done. I also began working on our community development audit. I have been gathering information about all of our donations, community appearances, Face Off Field Trips, RiverKings Readers program and Jersey Auctions from the past year. This information is crucial to present to the Maddox Foundation, our ownership organization, so that they see the impact we are making in the community.

My bosses were also kind enough to allow me to miss a week in the office for spring break. During the break, I spent time skiing in Breckenridge, CO. Needless to say, it was nice to have the time off to relax. When I came back, however, I did anything but relax.

The day that I got back, I we had a game. I got off the plane at 2, went home and showered, and was at the arena by 4. We had our normal pregame/game routine and the night was over. And I was exhausted. Thankfully, I didn't have anything to do until class and work on Monday. Then we had another game on Tuesday. And Thursday. And Friday. Having four games in a week was by far the most exhausting part of my time here. But we made it through without any major problems.

So that concludes another blog. Talk to you guys in a few weeks.
