The Andrew Alberts Report: A few days to go...
Albe
Golf, road trip, and team bonding...


So we had a busy week here in the Hub of Hockey and now it continues up in Stowe, Vermont.

Not sure if you guys made it out the Bruins Annual Golf Tournament, but we had a great time.

We had over 245 players if my memory serves me right and here were a lot of Alumni, Hall of Famers and celebrity guests who made appearances at the Pinehills Golf Course down in Plymouth. 

We started out with a great day of golf followed up by a silent auction, as well as a live auction, that helped raise money for the Boston Bruins Foundation.  We all had a great time golfing with the sponsors and on behalf of the squad I just want to thank everyone for the contributions and coming out to golf.

On Thursday we were up early for a morning skate and them jumped on a plane to Montreal for a 7:30 p.m. game. As you know, the end results weren't what were looking for but there were many positives that came out of the game that we can, and will, build on.

After the game we boarded the bus for a ride to Stowe.  We arrived around 2:00 a.m. got in the wrapper for a few hours of sleep and then we were up for a team breakfast and practice at 11:00 a.m. 

The practice was quite unique as the rink we skated in was pretty small, with not much standing or sitting room, for that matter.  However, many locals of all ages packed the arena to watch our practice and cheer us on in the team shootout.

After that entertaining skate we went back to the lodge for a quick lunch.

Then we were off to meet Frank, a team-building instructor, for some team bonding. We did quite a few small exercises and then moved on the most liked activity -- orienteering.

The 27 players were split into two teams and we were set free into the woods to find checkpoints and pick up markers. We were given one hour to navigate through woods, prairies, and swampy areas to locate all markers. 

As you might imagine, the goal of the exercise was to use teamwork, communications and problem solving to collect all markers in the fastest time possible.

After all the team bonding experience we went back for a BBQ and a little R&R. Soon we'll be back in Boston for our last preseason game.

Opening night is just a few days away and I'll let you know how it goes!

Take care,
Albe

P.S. I know that I owe you guys a movie review and a little restaurant report card. Keep it here for that, too.
