2011 NCFL Champions

Just a few photos to commemorate a long and fruitful journey that started on the first week of August and concluded with a victory in the 2011 B-Team NCFL Championship over a great Colchester Cougar team, 26-8! Thank you to all the parents, the SBYFL board, and most of all to the awesome young football players who represented their town with great discipline, sportsmanship, and pride. It was an honor to be involved in this amazing accomplishment. Hopefully you enjoy these photos that I hijacked from peoples’ Facebook pages. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Kate & Kurt @ Sun Valley


Another week has passed and another edition of Live with Kate & Kurt is in the books. We had a blast filming this week from Sun Valley Beach Club in West Stafford. It is a short edition but it’s action-packed and full of info.  Watch the video below to see if Kate gets stung by an angry bee or if she can actually talk me into going down the huge waterslide in my suit. We missed Tocka this week, and our thoughts and prayers are with him and the Hipsky and Champaign families during this very difficult time. On next week’s edtion we will have Tocka’s weather report and add a new segment, “Local sports with Truck”.  Thank you also to Noah Vail for his excellent camera work.

Kate & Kurt Episode 12 (Field Hockey Camp)

A great show this week filmed at the Stafford Middle School during the WCU field hockey clinic. My daughter Hannah, who just turned 12 on July 23rd, is attending and having a great experience. It’s just another one of the many programs available in this wonderful little New England town that we call home. Get the weather for the rest of the week with Tocka and also find out who’s birthday is in the coming week.

Jeff Gordon winner in Phoenix

Congrats to Stafford’s own Charles Lewandoski, the Polish Rocket, for an impressive 21st place finish in Phoenix last weekend. Stay abreast of all of Chalew’s racing stats here on my blog as we follow his career in the Nationwide series. Congratulations to my daughter Hannah who filled out the survey last week and was the only one to pick the winner, Jeff Gordon. Fill out the survey this week and win a gift certificate to Express Wireless and Rockville Lanes, hit this link now—>Vegas Race Poll .

This week Rick Casagrande was gracious enough to invite me up to Casagrande Motorsports to check out there new Limited Late Model car that will be racing at Stafford Motor Speedway this season. I caught up with Cory Casagrande while I was up there and he answered a few questions for me. I also stopped by Bosco’s Market & Deli to get a sponsor’s perspective on things. Local business owners should seriously consider sponsoring a local driver here in Stafford. Please watch the video below and hit this link and tell me who’s going to win this weekend—–> Vegas Race Poll .
