Hi we now have added Jake Phillips to our house for Billeting and he is a card. So we have 2 billets again , but as it turns out we will be down to only Jake as Nate has decided to go home.
Very sad to see Nate go but he will definitely be a force to deal with in his career. Good luck Nate next Falcon’s game Sat July 27th.
Hi everyone today we received some bad news one of our Billetters has decided to go back home.Daryl has decided that at this time this is the best thing for him. The Falcons know this and as we were put down for 3 Billets and are now down to 1 we told them that we would of course have no problem taking another 2 billets. At this time we are being told that they have no further need of host families.
We are sad to see Daryl go it was fun having him here and hope his career continues upward and for the better.
Hello folks the BILLETING of 2 Kelowna Falcons having Nate and Daryl is turning into a wonderful time & experience. We have a friend that was able to make it to one of the home games and Nate was kind enough to come over and talk to her and give a signed ball for her. This was the first time in 30 years she has seen a live game and yes that means she is in her 90’s. Nate was both very professional and personable personable with her and our thanks to him. About the only distressing thing so far is that both of the players have not played a lot. (yes i caught myself i was going to say both boys but that is incorrect because both of them are Gentleman and do there parents and team proud).
Hello folks when my wife and i decided to purchase a house in Kelowna we of course wanted to be able to rent some of our house out. We thought about Leasing but with all the red tape and some of the horror stories we have heard about tenants we decided against that. We decided to start with a couple of short term billets and began looking we decided to go with the Kelowna Falcons Baseball team. This experience is and continues to be fun and interesting we were suppose to have 3 ball players but have only 2 as 1 of the players was injured and could not attend. We Have Nate & Daryl who are and are proving to be a delight in the way they conduct themselves on and off the field and in our house.
Now for some people they will not be able to believe we have never visited Leavenworth even though we have been to Wenatchee at least a half-dozen times , but always assumed Leavenworth was like another 4-8 from there. So going across the border was no problem has we had passports and it was the middle of the week 5 minutes max. The drive was nice not to hot and not sunny. We arrived at our hotel which was Der Ritterhof Motor Inn which we had book thru Booking.com. The Hotel was clean reasonable priced also the breakfast was good with coffee, apple/orange juice, yogart, fruit, muffins,and danishes available even at 10:00am. the first night we had dinner at Kristalls restaurant & Lounge as it was a short 2 minute walk to it and the hotel had given us 20% off coupon.The food was good the service okay but they had forgotten to use the coupon we said we would be back and use it then but as is the case we kept trying all the other places. It is a wonderful town that caters to the Bavarian life style and look which was excellent to see and taste.
