Message from Jamey,

As we role out the initial issues of the Stickbrain Report I just want to thank you fellow ™Stickbrain's for all of the wonderful support we have received as we work to make this the premier place for real lacrosse Players, Parent's, Coaches, and Fans. We are not a big corporate business, we are just lacrosse fans like you, and the fact that you recognize that, and choose to support us on our mission is very important to me, and my family.

I want you to know that I love to hear from you, so feel free to contact us anytime and let us know what is on your mind, or what we can do to make this the best lacrosse resource around.
Also please make sure to add us to your safe senders lists and white list us, so we don't get filtered by your spam blockers.

Thanks again,

Jamey
