Наша благодарность в адрес организаторов турнира "Latvian Open 2014"!

 

Уже в третий раз подряд наша команда из Беларуси участвовала в "Latvian Open". Серьезных побед своих мы еще не одержали на этом турнире. Но верю, что тот опыт, те уроки, которые мы получили, рано или поздно дадут результат. И через пару лет наша команда дойдет-таки до финала!

 

Огромный респект организаторам, что верят в нас и помогают нам развивать флорбол в Беларуси.

 

До встречи на "Latvian Open 2015"!

 

Команда "Minsk" (Беларусь)

Прекрасный Турнир! Спасибо большое организаторам! Именно благодаря этому турниру мы прогрессируем как команда.

 

Не верьте всему, что пишет пресса! Мы, "Pietarin Tikkat" ("Питерские Дятлы") как и все русские люди любим Латвию и латышей.

 

Еще раз спасибо!
