More Anniversary stories

Eurolanche’s 10th anniversary (7.)

Eurolanche’s 10th anniversary (7.)A special series of articles on the occasion of Eurolanche’s anniversary.

This season, the Eurolanche Fan Club entered its 10th season in existence and will celebrate its 10th anniversary on August 12, 2017. On this occasion, we will be publishing a special series of articles about the Fan Club’s history, about your typical European NHL fan before Eurolanche came to be and other interesting topics that weren’t previously published. All of these articles will also be published in the coming book about Eurolanche (which will be available in both Slovak and English), which will be published in late 2017. Various memorabilia and more surprises will be part of Eurolanche’s big anniversary meeting in the High Tatras in August. Every participant will receive Avalanche merchandise and player autographs for free. 

The very first interview with the Eurolanche in a history... Ouch, everything must happened for the first time, right? I had never been more nervous before in my life likne on a day when I was supposed to be interviewed for the first time. Never. It could not be compared with the school or university exams. Never. It was December 2008 when I came to Denver for the first time as a part of the Eurolanche Invasion I. Our group consisted of three fans. Our first game? Against Detroit Red Wings. We met Kyle Keefe from Altitude TV before the game and I guess it was then when he suggested an interview with our group later during the same game. He really appeared along with the TV crew in our section sometime in the second or third period. My knees were shaking. It did not stop. I did not know English so much back in those days. Kyle was the firs American ever who was supposed to talk with me for longer time. At the end, it was not bad at all. I had to promote Eurolanche on TV. I hoped this very first interview had helped us in our first steps.
