Men, it is with tears in my eyes and a huge lump in my throat that I tell you that we lost a great friend today. Carlton Benton, our USA representative, passed away this morning. He has been my friend for almost 50 years. When I became Chairman of this FHC group, I quickly switched over to Carlton and the USA office because of my great trust in him. I just talked to his daughter Natalie, and she will get the "celebration information" to us as she plans it. I do not know who will take over his position. N ...
Managers, can you believe that it is almost July? We have 6 months to go in 2022. Could you imagine saying that back in the year 2000? Not me either. I have a few things for you:
It is absolutely imperative that all of you Managers do a good job of communicating with your Players and Team followers. I will address that momentarily. In the last tournament we had bad weather on Saturday afternoon and lost a few games so we decided to go to 'shortened games' to get Sunday's schedule in and hopefull ...

Managers, our FHC Board of Directors have not raised any fees since January of 2017. Not only that, but each Team receives 6 game balls at each tournament they play in, paid for by FHC. Also, the quality of the bracket winner shirts are better, but also cost more. We feel it is time to raise some fees, but we do not want to burden the teams with high tournament fees. We have the best game anywhere for the price, and do not want to change that.
Having said that, we all know that our economy has gotten more d ...

Managers, when you receive emails or messages from anyone on the FHC Board of Directors, please share those thoughts with your Players and Coaches. Quite often something new is announced but some Players say to us that they 'never heard a word' from their Manager. Help them out and yourself by being knowledgeable about what is going on with FHC.
About a month ago I was alerted that we had lost one of our venues for the 50's State Tournament for the December 10/11 weekend. We polled our 50's teams and they would r ...
