Okay here is a little non-MTB content for the blog. My oldest son (Will) and I are spending the better part of this week up in San Jose while Will’s hockey team, The San Diego Fear, compete in the North American Roller Hockey Championships (NARCH). The facility at the Silver Creek Sports complex is pretty impressive and is well suited to host the championships that includes over 400 teams in numerous age brackets from all over the Canada, the US and Central America. Will’s team is playing in the 12 and under Gold bracket against 22 other teams who made the cut through the regional qualifiers.
The boys played their first game today and won against the Golden Ridge team from British Columbia so they are off to a good start.
After the game we did some tourist stuff and went down to Monterey for some sightseeing that included the Monterey Aquarium.
There is a bit of the MTB tie-in here. Our plan is to take a couple – three days to get back home when we are all done with some camping and biking along the coast. We have not decided yet, but Santa Cruz, Montana Del Oro and Mt Pinos are high on our list of camp/mtb stops.
