Grüße aus Deutschland!

Greetings from Germany!

The hockey group here at Longstreth has just returned from a trip to Germany! We again met with Thomas Kille, owner of TK Hockey, for a few days learning all about what TK Hockey has to offer for the 2014 season. We are very excited about what we saw! Not only did we get to see the new products, but we were able to test the sticks out at Mannheim Hockey Club in Mannheim, Germany.

Fanny Rinne, a four-time Olympic player for the German national field hockey team who has recently joined the TK staff after retiring from the team, spent the weekend with us. It was great to be able to test out the sticks with her! On our final night in Germany, Thomas surprised us with a giant elephant (which is TK’s logo) to join us for dinner! It was a great trip with exciting presentations, exceptional food, and an all around fun time!

We’ve included some pictures of the highlights from our trip.   See even more pictures on our Google+ Page.
