I met Henry and Cathy Muller at JFK to board our 5:15 p.m. , Air Berlin Flight , to Berlin. We would be meeting 10 other players who decided to depart early, Monday, and were in Berlin awaiting our arrival.

We landed at 7:15 a.m. and were met by our good friend Claus. Claus had brought a 16 passenger bus to transport the 3 of us, so room was not a problem. We headed for the ice rink where we were going to leave our hockey equipment. After a short stay at the rink we headed for the hotel.  We arrived at the hotel at 9:30 a.m. and I was not very surprised to find out that no one was awake to greet us. Henry Cathy and I dropped our bags and headed  out for an early lunch.

At about 3 p.m. we started to see the rest of our team who told us about all the fun they were having in Berlin. I let everyone know that they had to be in the lobby at 7:00 p.m. to catch a ride to the rink for our first game versus the Berlin Police team.

7 p.m. to my surprise everyone was there and we headed out. Our game was at the same rink where the tournament was going to be held over the weekend. It was an outdoor rink and the weather was perfect for hockey; 45 degrees.  Our goalie Mike Fitterer was having so much fun he did not arrive for the game. However we were lucky enough to find a kid who played the game before us and agreed to stay. We easily won the game 10-3

After the game we headed out for a late diner and were in bed by Midnight.

Everyone was up early and downstairs for our 9:00 a.m. departure to the Olympic Stadium where Claus had arranged a VIP tour for us. Tour took about 3 hours and we had lunch there. Very interesting place, Jessie Owens raced there, and Hitler did alot of things there as well.

We took the subway home took a quick nap and headed out the the Hofbrau House to meet Britta and Marcus.

We were home by Midnight. Tomorrow was the start of the tournament.
