Hello,
 
This is my first update on training camp for the championship.
We met on December 6th at 8 o'clock in Bled, which is a very nice city in Slovenia and is known for an island in the middle of the lake and castle overlooking at the lake. We had a little introductory meeting, but some players are still missing. After the meeting, we did a warm up and went on the ice. The practice lasted a little more than an hour and was quite hard.  The rest of the day was free, and I went with some friends to hang out around the lake.
 
Monday and Tuesday were similar, although the missing guys came before the morning practice on Monday. We woke up at 8 and went for breakfast before practicing at 10:30 for an hour and a half. At 1 o'clock, we had lunch and then rested before evening practice on ice at 7:00. We are concentrating on tactics, but no real lines were made yet.
 
After the practice, we had a long meeting in the locker room with old team-mates. We all play for different clubs, so there is much to talk about. One player, Miha Zajc, celebrated his birthday today [Tuesday] so we sang to him after the evening practice and also gave him a small cake.
