Eddie and the guys in the dorm are living large......

Hey everyone, Eddie Cordero here on the blog today.

I’m one of the incoming freshmen this year, from California. The normal freshman year move in to the dorms really wasn't all that bad for me. I was able to get settled pretty quickly and just hang out until my roommate and suite mates got in. My roommate and I have a pretty great setup in our room with all the necessities like a mini fridge, microwave, Xbox with a TV, and the all important Keurig machine to help me out during those 8AM classes. I’m already really enjoying living with seven of my other teammates. They’re all real cool guys and I know we're all going to get close and have an unreal year. 
As well as my suite mates, getting to know the older guys on the team has been a good time too. They already take all of us freshman under their wing and help us out with whatever they can. I really can't wait to start forming new, tight bonds with all the fellas and even more than that, I can't wait to get to work and go to battle with all the boys during the season. Being back in school is taking a little getting used to, but I’ll get back in the groove of things soon. 

Until next time,

"Everybody ropes, everybody rides"

 folks, Flagz back here for another year at Fredonia. 
Unfortunately this
 will be my last year so I intend on making it count. I am very excited to be
 back at Fredonia with all of my teammates. This year we have a massive 
group of freshmen so I'm excited to get to know everyone and form new 
bonds. We were lucky enough to be able to get back on the ice Monday.
 I was super excited as I was ready to get back at it, but also because I
 got my new equipment and was able to wear it for the first time. I am 
slowly getting back into the classroom setting and finding myself more 
and more comfortable each day. 
This year is going to be a great time and
 can't wait for the season to start. The boys are back in town and are 
ready to show people that we are better then our record showed last 
Till next time stay awesome Fredonia.

Bourney has homework piled on already....

It's been a bit of a whirlwind start here in Fredonia, with so many new faces around the room and being my senior year, but it has been great to see everyone again and the excitement in the dressing room for the upcoming season. 

I think all the boys are adjusting to being back in classes well after having a couple months off.  I have had a couple classes start off pretty quickly with homework due today and Friday so it appears I will be spending time in my favorite cubicle in the library already. Before the library though Harps and myself are gonna get in a quick lift for the day and get a good sweat.  We have only had 3 days of classes so far and I'm already getting antsy for the season to start, its going to be an exciting year.

Wilkie and the boys practicing up for the golf tourney.....

It's great to be back here on campus and see some familiar faces. It's great to get back with the boys and catch up with everyone. I don't live very close to anyone in the summer so I've definitely missed getting to hangout with these guys every day. As this will be my last year I'll definitely be trying to take advantage of every day I have left, especially with this weather being so great it's kind of hard not to take advantage.

On Saturday of few of the boys went out to the local golf course to get in a little practice round before the 2nd annual Fred State Blue Devils Golf Tourney. And it looks like I definitely need the practice... I didn't shoot very well but we couldn't have asked for a nicer day.  It's a great way to bond with the boys. 

Until next time

An excited Kauf says, "Welcome Back".....

Kauf here!

Just wanted to say hello to all the Fredonia Blue Devil hockey fans, friends and family and welcome back for the 2015/2016 season!

I think I speak for a lot of guys when I say that I'm excited to be back here in Fredonia with my fellow teammates. As most guys have arrived over this past weekend it has been great to catch up with everyone and listen and tell stories about our short summer adventures while getting familiar with the new fresh faces that will be in the dressing room. It seems as though we just left this place, but maybe Fredonia seems like home especially after spending the past 3 years living in the same house for 7-8 months out of the year.

As classes begin this week as well as our first ice times I'm sure most of the guys will have their plates full including myself as for most of my senior classes get right back to work. After a spring of a lot of changes with our group I cannot wait to get my final season started with a new beginning with our club, until next time.

With exams next week, stress is ramping up.........

Hey there hockey fans!

Its #6 Kurt Gottschalk here for the blog post today. It’s been a pretty stressful week here at Fredonia State as the year is coming to an end and finals are approaching us faster than ever. It’s been a nice week here with weather being in the 20’s (70 degrees in Fahrenheit) and all of the students outside enjoying the nice weather. 

With Fred fest passing us it was nice to see some of the hockey alumni and getting the chance to hangout with them once again. For all the country fans reading this last Friday Mac MacAvoy, Garrett Moore, Mitch Kauffmann and myself saw Eric Church in concert, which was incredible. Garrett and I were in different spots at the concert and Garrett managed to snap a close picture of Eric Church.

As for the school aspect this week it’s been pretty stressful with 2 presentations and 2 projects to hand in which makes it pretty challenging to study for my four exams. We also have our Student Athletic Gala coming up this Sunday to give out awards for the different athletes who have excelled at their sport this past year and to congratulate the seniors who are moving on.

Well I better get back to studying Business Law. 

Take care hockey fans and have a great summer and Go Flames Go!

"I don't think I have even seen that many people in Fredonia ever!"

Hello folks this is Mackenzie McAvoy signing into today's version of the blog and my last one of the year. I hope everyone is having a great week, so far and remember people its almost the weekend!.
In today's edition I'm just going to talk about how my week is going and what's going on around in Fredonia, since it is 'Dead Week' and the last week of school so not too much is happening except for studying for exams coming up next week.
For this week I am currently studying for a map quiz I have at 10 AM this morning and also working on my Stats 300 project which is due Thursday in which the project consist of looking at 160 grades from 4 categories of the Business Departments and to see if there is any nominal similarities or differences between the grades and different majors in the Business Department. I know it sounds like a lot of fun! It sounds really boring but it is kind of interesting and it also will help in the future when doing stats for a business one day hopefully.
Other than my project nothing else is going on, just have been very quiet the last few days after our annual Fred Fest, even though it was cancelled, the off campus festivities still took part. Driving in downtown Fredonia it was pretty crazy to see all the students and kids walking around and having a good time. I personally don't think I have even seen that many people in Fredonia ever!
And also I might add it was nice to see the Flames win last night that it for sure and I do believe the was a goal the first time.
But anyways I'm gonna finish up the finishing touches on my project and also studying for a quiz tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great week and even better weekend.
Yours in hockey,
Mackenzie McAvoy #27
