The old Fresno Falcons

Postby Big J » Wed Aug 18, 2010 10:16 am

I loved the old green and yellow Falcons, from back in the day. Before things got all complicated and they tried to be a "professional" league. Looking back that brand of hockey they played was surprisingly good, and it was always, ALWAYS good, clean fun - something sorely lacking nowadays. I collect stuff from those days - pucks, programs, etc. If you have any please let me know. I'd love to get my hands on a jersey, that'd be a dream.

Hey Big J, would you be so kind as to post that color Falcon picture again, we had technical difficuties and lost it in the conversion. Thanks, we appreciate all the great posts you have been making lately!

Ah I miss those days. Games always on Friday and Saturday nights. Usually a bench clearing brawl on fridays almost guranteed a sellout for Saturday's game. Those where the days.

I recently uncovered a treasure trove of old programs. I'll have to scan and post a few pages - the ads are spectacular and I think folks here would really enjoy them.

I thought the Falcons would always be around, It was quite a shock to loose them.

Anyone else on here that used to attend games back in the day? I have an archive of stuff that I'll have to scan and post...such a fun piece of Fresno's past that's been almost forgotten.

I use to play for the Falcons back in the mid 70s and would like to see some of your collection if available. I live in Bakersfield now but still get together with other members of the team during that period. In fact they have had two reunions during the last few years and even Alex showed up.
