The Swift Current Broncos welcomed a selection of their young players and the draft class of 2014 to their orientation camp this Monday and Tuesday. It’s an opportunity for them to introduce the young players to the Broncos organization and to one another. I had a chance to chat with Broncos Coach/GM Mark Lamb about that and some other pressing matters leading into training camp.

For now it’s just a process of introducing themselves to the system. As main camp starts up it becomes time for these young men to really show something. Obviously with a full time job at Standard Motors and a couple of kids at home I can’t be at camp as much as I have been in previous years. That doesn’t mean we won’t have coverage here and at Swift Current Online. I’ll be there as much as my schedule permits and hope you will all chime in as well with your thoughts about what you’re seeing at camp. I think exhibition is really where the story will be told this year given how many returning players are going to be here.
I had done a couple of interviews at our annual Click Before You Dig Broncos Alumni golf tournament at Elmwood Golf and Country Club. I figured I would post them here now since they had been collecting dust. Colin Powers did use them for a couple of articles on Swift Current Online, but here are the full interviews. They include Dale telling the story about his new athletic career. I think it’s pretty cool and it would be awesome if a former Bronco was in the Olympics down the road.

The tournament was a blast. Kudos to the Rondeaus who have done a great job heading the committee in recent years and to everyone at Elmwood. I enjoy being a part of it and hope I can continue to be in the future.
