Flying Horse to Host German Division 1 (Bundesliga) Soccer Team as a Part of Colorado Cup 2016.During the week of July 10 – 16, Division 1 German soccer will come to Colorado Springs. FSV Mainz ’05, a division 1 Bundesliga team who competes in the same league with Bayern Munich (aka World Cup Champions), will be in Colorado Springs for one week of pre-season training and conditioning prior to the opening of their 2016-17 Bundesliga season. The team’s “headquarters” during their stay in Colorado Springs will be our own Lodge at Flying Horse, including all players, coaches, team management and sponsors.
The week-long “Celebration of Soccer” will include a number of events centered around the team’s training sessions, which will be conducted at the U.S. Air Force Academy. These will include youth soccer camps and coaches’ clinics, as well “friendlies” games against the Colorado Springs Switchbacks and a Division 1 Mexican team yet to be announced. Organizer for the event is Funding Ones Freedom, owned by Justin Rose, a Colorado native, former professional soccer player and now an entrepreneur living and working in Frankfurt, Germany. Funding Ones Freedom is a social enterprise organization which partners with businesses, non-profits and individuals to help youth in need in a variety of ways, using the game of soccer as a vehicle to promote international cooperation and education through the sponsorship of youth soccer camps and international exchange programs. In 2015, Funding Ones Freedom assisted a number of exchange students, youth soccer teams and individual soccer players to help them aspire to achieve their life potential. More information on the organization is available on their website, www.fundingsonesfreedom.com.
Also associated with this event will be a business forum, which will be held at The Club at Flying Horse on July 15, from 6:00 – 8:00 P.M. This by-invitation event will include Mainz ’05 players, team management, accompanying team sponsors, representatives from the German/American Chamber of Commerce of Colorado, local media and government officials. Invitations will also be extended to all local individuals and businesses who choose to become sponsors for the event. The venue will provide a casual, unstructured venue for those wishing to dialog and learn about the business of international soccer, discuss opportunities for doing business in both the U.S. and Germany, and even get some autographs if desired.

This is Ozzie, he will be 12 years old in July. He vigilantly keeps the golf course safe by chasing geese, coyotes & squirrels. In his free time he enjoys attempting to catch squirrels (no success so far), hiking at the Monument Work Center and swimming in a spring fed pond halfway through his hike. In his younger days he loved to go mountain biking with his dad, Dan Hawkins, he still loves to do that but just at a bit slower pace! He loves being pet and is super friendly, so feel free to say hello!

A 60 minute massage is about the same as 7-8 hours of sleep to your body.
A growing body of research suggests that a good massage is even better for you than you think. For the same reasons that a massage is relaxing, it boosts neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine. Massage helps improve circulation and aids in the elimination of toxins. It is one of the most effective treatments in reducing stress and relief from aches and pains. Most importantly massage is a tremendously effective method of reducing the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. It lowers your heart rate and blood pressure, releases endorphins and boosts your immune system. Massage is an integral part of maintaining your energy balance and physical dynamics. Benefits are multi-dimensional affecting physical, emotional, and psychological optimization.
We appreciate Anne Ojennes sharing one of her favorites with us. “I love working with Eve Taylor 301 Aromatherapy blend in my deep tissue massage sessions.
