The fourth annual Texas Brahmas Making the Cut prospect camp will open this coming weekend.
Last year, 34 athletes attended three days of camp with countless drills and multiple scrimmages as well as several off-ice activities. They were reduced to two finalists who were offered training camp contracts.
This year, prospects will attend an informational meeting on Thursday evening, September 23rd at the NYTEX Sports Centre where coaches Dan Wildfong and Ron Vogel will lay out rules and expectations. Also expected to be on hand will be General Manager Mike Barack, Equipment Manager Phil Shipp, Athletic Trainer Tom Hart.
The camp will begin Friday morning and break Sunday evening when two athletes will be offered official 2010 Texas Brahmas training camp contracts. The Brahmas and all CHL teams are able to officially open training camp Monday, October 4th.

Two years ago, rookie defenseman Ross Rouleau was on the receiving end of the "Making the Cut" speeches, and after a strong outing, an invitation to the Brahmas official training camp followed. Rouleau became a member of the 2009 Ray Miron President’s Cup Championship team and returned to the blue line for the 2009-10 season. Rouleau will play for the Kalamazoo K-Wings (ECHL) this season.
