Quick Hits: July 10, 2024

1) The Flyers' annual summertime Community Caravan tour makes a stop in Ocean City, NJ, on Wednesday. Flyers winger Tyson Foerster and defenseman Jamie Drysdale are among the players who will be on hand from noon to 2 p.m. EDT at the Sports and Civic Center (6th St. and the Boardwalk) to take photos and sign autographs for fans. Flyers Alumni reps and Gritty are also participating.

The Community Caravan will be in Sea Isle City on Thursday.

2) On Wednesday morning, Flyers Hall of Famer Joe Watson is doing a public appearance at the Uncle Bill's Pancake House location on Beach Ave. in Wildwood to sign autographs and sell copies of his "Thundermouth" autobiography. Watson will be at the Ocean City locations of Uncle Bill's Pancake House on West Ave. on Friday and the Asbury Ave. location on Saturday.

I helped Joe write his book but he's done all the legwork in selling thousands of copies, shaking countless hands and signing every autograph request.

3) Multiple current and former will be playing in the 2024 edition of the annual summertime "Da Beauty League". Among current and former Flyers: Ryan Poehling, Bobby Brink, Noah Cates, brother Jackson Cates (former Flyer and Phantom), and James van Riemsdyk.

4) Tom Bunting has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Tony Voce's three young daughters after their dad's untimely passing earlier this week. To date, the campaign has raised roughly $30,000 toward its $50,000 goal of helping provide for the care and welfare of Tony's daughters Mia, Raya and Gianna. To donate, click here.
