Carleton Ravens Men’s Hockey 2012 Home Opener


With the Ravenspalooza event in full swing, it was a busy weekend for sports at Carleton University. The Men’s Hockey Ravens had their home opener on Friday October 12 with the Concordia Stingers as the opponents. Although the Ravens out shot and out played the Stingers, they lost 4-3 in a shoot out. The game was, however, highly entertaining with plenty of big time hits and a brisk pace played with tons of skill. In the lead photo, Ravens forward Joey West battles a Concordia player late in the 3rd period.

NetFx Elite Program Summer 2012


I have written about my shoots with NetFx Goaltending School before and I always enjoy working with Shawn Smith and his crew as they put the goalies through their paces.

Shawn wanted a group photo and action photos from the drills before the gang split up. A gallery of images is available at the end of this post.

… and some old material

Well, it may be A New Beginning but the blog needs some material. So I ported a small sample of posts from the past 2 years from my old blog to the new blog. It was a bit of a pain, but worth it regardless. Most of you would have figured this out by now. Anyway there are write ups about NetFx Goaltending School, Adult Hockey Skills, Raz Hockey League, and Ottawa Girls Hockey.

Now on to some new material …

A New Beginning …

It has been a long time since I wrote a post on this blog site. My old blogging platform (not to be named) sucked. It was simply too awkward to use. And it never quite looked right. And it did not integrate well with my main dunnePhoto web site. So I finally bit the bullet and re-vamped the blog to use WordPress as my platform.

Raz Hockey League (RHL)


Adult hockey is sometime referred to as “beer league”, but what if your ice time is at 7 AM? “Coffee league” perhaps? Every Thursday morning, a little over 20 guys wake up in the wee hours of the morning, grab their equipment bags, and head over to the Goulbourn Recreation Centre for a spirited game of recreational hockey.
