I apologize that it’s been a little while since my last post. Today, though, I have some exciting news to share with you.
The Florida Flight is a brand-new professional minor-league basketball team that will be playing its games in the Kissimmee Civic Center (near Orlando). They are part of the World Basketball Association (WBA), a league that is in its seventh year. The league serves as a sort of feeder system to not only the NBA, but other minor leagues and the best European teams.
And I am the new Director of Media and Public Relations for the team.
Each game will offer a wonderful chance for a couple hours of great family entertainment. The opening-day roster will be finalized sometime Friday, and it will feature several players with connections to Central Florida, be it playing at a local university or high school, being born in the area, or whatever the case may be.
I will continue with Weis Words Writing, my freelance writing company; in fact, it’ll be business as usual. This new position will take some time each week to be sure, but it is not an all-consuming kind of thing.
I’ll mix in some Flight news with the regular blogs as time permits. If you want to know more, please visit http://www.flighthoops.com. Right now, it is a work in progress but it’ll give you an idea of what to expect.
