Tailing the Komets

This is from Kevin Reiter

I signed last night with Bouch's old team the Basingstoke Bisons in the Elite league. I've always wanted to play in Europe and when this option became available I had to take it. I've been talking with Ryan Aldridge, coach, a lot lately and I liked what he had to say about the opportunity with his team. I am very excited for the opportunity, but now the summer just got shorter by more than a month. Talking with Bouch, he had good things to say about the Elite league, the town of Basingstoke, and the Bison fans. Basingstoke is close to London and it will be nice to take day trips there when the team has off days. It will be an easier transition compared to some of the other countries I received offers from. Being an English speaking country was a big part of my decision along with the local university offering a one year full time MBA program. I won't be out of my comfort level too far and I hope that I can give the Bisons a chance to win night in and night out like I did this past year for the Komets. I would like to thank the Komet organization, Al Sims, and the fans for the opportunity to play here, an unbelievable year and lots of memories.

Kathleen and I want to thank you for being a big part of a very special season in '07-'08.

Best of luck in England this season. It is a beautiful country with a lot of history. Have fun and make sure that you try the Earl Grey during afternoon tea time.

I want to wish you all the luck in the world by accomplishing your dream in playing for England.

You were such a terrific person on and off the ice. I will always remember you giving me a paper of your sister's website. You always took time to talk with me about that. I sent several emails to her website about "Reiter". The greatest thing I remember is when the party was at the coliseum and I went over to you and asked where your sister was. You took your time and pointed where she was at so I could introduce myself to her and your little niece.

Again, thanks for the great year we had by winning the turner cup. Keep in touch with us. Also, check your sisters website I will be writing to "Reiter"
