Today was the day that I had been looking forward to all week long; Trial on the Isle. Players such as Tom Sestito, Zac Rinaldo and Eric Wellwood, amongst others, talked about how badly they wanted to win. Mike Testwuide was looking to defend the title he won in 2010 alongside Jeff Carter and Michael Banwell.

The 2011 Flyers Prospects arrived at the Stone Harbor Fire House around 9 a.m. Fans stormed the streets in Stone Harbor early in the orange and black to cheer on the Flyers prospects. As the group filed off the bus, Flyers Strength and Conditioning Coach Jim McCrossin gathered the group of bikers and discussed the route in which the guys would go to get to their partners waiting on the paddleboards. Some of the bikers included Luke Pither, Erik Gustafsson and Marc-Andre Bourdon. The festivities began at exactly 10 a.m. when Stone Harbor Mayor Susan Walters yelled into the megaphone, “Ready, Set and Go!”

Media dispersed quickly to follow the group. The hot and humid day in Stone Harbor had even those not in the race sweating. In the end, Marcel Noebels (bike), Kevin Marshall (paddleboard) and Kyle Mountain (run) won the 2011 Trial on the Isle.

After Trail on the Isle, the event moved to the Stone Harbor Elementary School. Players led local kids in a Hooked on Hockey clinic in the parking lot. Fans then waited in line for hours outside the school to see their Flyers prospect and get some autographs.

The last event of the day had the Flyers prospects in a charity softball game against the Stone Harbor Stars, at the 80th Street baseball field. The Flyers prospects were looking to avenge last year’s loss to the Stars. Philadelphia Flyers Public Address Announcer Lou Nolan emceed the game. Fans filled the stands and around the dugouts to see cheer on their team.

Saturday is the first day of scrimmages at the SkateZone for the 2011 Flyers Prospects. The scrimmage begins at 9 a.m. and will wrap up around 12:15 p.m.
