The need for speed…bags

August 31, 2009

From Bill Ransom…

I am writing this due to a search for boxing in Hope Mills. The South View High School Marching Band is doing a boxing show for this year.

The show was taken from the DCI Bluecoats. During the manufacture and acquisition of props for the show, we have encountered a minor mishap that requires the need to attempt to have three red speedbags donated. We have three currently that are regulation Everlast red bags and really need three more to match the ones we already have.

I can be contacted at (910) 527-4073.

This show could be a alternate source to promote the growth of the Hope Mills Boxing program.

Rhino Wrestling update

August 18, 2009

From our friend Marty Bartram…

Registration for Rhino Wrestling is just around the corner, kicking off on October 1.

But, wait! There’s more!

Rhino Wrestling does not ask members to conduct fundraisers for the team, however we do sponsor a fundraiser for members to earn registration costs and monthly dues.

This fundraiser kicks off on Sept. 3 and closes on Sept. 27. This opportunity has historically been very successful and families have been able to raise enough funds to pay for their entire season. Details are available on the Rhino schedule/calendar here.

If you are considering joining the Rhinos this season don’t miss this opportunity.

Registration details are available here.

Local boxing update

August 18, 2009

From our friend Eddie Nazario…

The boxing match slated for Spring Lake this past Saturday was canceled due to the doctor pulling out at the last minute. Without a doctor to do the physicals, and be present at ringside, the show can not go on.

He went on to ask that area doctors consider helping out.

Some clubs even give doctors certified letters so that they may use the event as a tax write off in the amount of $1,000. The event is being worked on for the 22nd of the month.

Adult league gearing up for new season

August 10, 2009

From our friend Patrick Dupree…

Here is a list of the teams and schedule for the upcoming fall adult league at The John D. Fuller Sr. Recreational/Athletic Complex.

As you can see our league has doubled in such a short time and we would look hope to continue to grow as teams await our spring league starting in February 2010.

As a League we would like to not only welcome back last season’s champions, the Ft. Bragg Stunnas, but two more adult male teams from Ft. Bragg – The Knights and the Spartans. Notice the names. True Soldiers and Warriors.

We’d also like to welcome as we start the begining of what we hope will be a great adult female league, the Lady Rush from Fayetteville and The Ft. Bragg Lady Dragons.

These two women’s teams will play against each other right along with our men’s schedule. We will continue to add women’s teams as they sign up.

In addition, we would also like to welcome the Center Grove Bucks out of Hoke County. It’s our first and hopefully not our last team from our neighbor county.

Men’s teams
Carolina Reign
Center Grove Bucks
Game Over
Ft. Bragg Stunnas
Hoop Dreamz
Regulators
South City Ballers
Spartans
Team Go Hard
