BOBBY ORR SENDS SIGNED PHOTO
  23/06/2014

Yesterday a cardboard poster tube arrived at ROCKIES. The contents inside just blew Rockies owner Jim Graves away. It happened to be a signed photo of one of the hockey greats BOBBY  ORR sent by the man himself. The photo is the famous shot of BOBBY flying thru the air after he scored the Stanley Cup winning goal in Boston Gardens on the 10th May 1970. Without question one of the most recognised hockey shots in the history of the game.

 This piece which is currently being framed is now one of the most prized pieces in ROCKIES. Jim went on to say that he is speachless to the fact that one of the greatest players to play hockey has taken the time to send a signed photo from one of his special moments in his career. Jim is hopeful that BOBBY will pay a visit sometime in the future.



SIGNED BOBBY ORR BOOK
  05/06/2014

Another welcomed gift arrived in Rockies today. Conor Boyd a friend of Jim's dropped into Rockies with a Bobby Orr autobiograghy book signed by the NHL Hall of Famer himself. Conor who is originally from Belfast has resided in the Toronto area for the past 40 years and always checks into ROCKIES with amazing finds when he is on holiday in Northern Ireland... CONOR  hard to top this one mate.

 This book is very special as it is Bobby Orr's first autobiograghy even though he left the game of hockey  back in 1978 when he retired from the Chicago Blackhawks. Previously Bobby made his name with the Boston Bruins where he set numerous records.

He is the only defenceman to win the NHL League Scoring Title together with holding the record for the most points+ assists in a single NHL season for a defenceman.  His list of achievements goes on and on.

Out of interest Bobby's grandfather Robert came from outside of Belfast at Ballymena and came to Parry Sound ( Bobby's birth town  )  in Ontario in the eary 20th century.

Thanks again to Conor for a superb  item.



AT LONG LAST A STAMPS JERSEY
  05/06/2014

Rockies recently received possession of a Calgary Stampeders jersey. The Conroy family consisting of David , his wife Jackie and their 3 year old daughter Lottie very kindly stopped by to drop it in to us. The number # 82 jersey is the one slotback NIK  LEWIS wears for the STAMPS. NIK is an 11 year veteran with the CFL spending all his time with Calgary while establishing a number of club and league records.

The STAMPEDERS play in the Canadian Football League in the western division along with the likes of the BC LIONS, EDMONTON  ESKIMOS, SASKATCHEWAN ROUGH RIDERS and WINNIPEG  BLUE  BOMBERS.

ROCKIES  has an impressive section dedicated to the Canadian Football League and this welcomed jersey will certainly enhance this area.

ROCKIES would once again like to thank the Conroy family for their kind gesture. Additionally a special thanks to Calgary City Manager RICK  MORRIS and Jackie's mom DONNA for their help in securing this jersey.
