Tailing the Komets

Ks sign four

From a Komets press release: 

Talked to David Franke

He said the Komets may announce some player signings this afternoon or tomorrow, depending on when the paperwork gets in. He also said they are getting closer to announcing something on an affiliation.

As expected, Aaron Clarke is retiring, though the Komets made him a strong offer. Joe Hartman is going to either retire or maybe play in Colorado where his wife got a job.

Konstantin Shafranov is in Russia visiting family and will sit down to talk with the Komets when he returns. They definitely want him back as an assistant coach.

Free fireworks with canned goods

As many of you know, Komets coach Gary Graham is also owner of Pyromaniacs Firewooks in Time Corners. Pryomaniacs is running a promotion through July 6 where anyone who brings in canned food items for a donation to Community Harvest Food Bank will receive free samples of fireworks as part of  ``Cans for Grams.''  (I guess fireworks are measued in grams.) They'll be giving away things like Pyro Viagara, Crackling crawfish and Counter strike boomers. The store is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and until at least midnight on Friday.
