PHATS/SPHEM HALL OF FAME HONOREES

PHATS/SPHEM MILESTONE GAME HONOREES

PHATS/SPHEM FRANK & VI ROWE AMBASSADORS AWARD

The Frank & Vi Rowe Ambassadors Award was created to recognize and honor those vendors who have assisted us through the years to do our jobs. The recipient should demonstrate reliability, dedication and cooperation in working with the players, trainers, teams and the league for the betterment of the game. We want to recognize them for their work in product development, advancing service and otherwise making a contribution to the game.

For over 50 years Frank and Vi Rowe worked for CCM and Bauer. Frank worked the field, meeting with the teams and players and over time became known as the “best skate fitter” in the business. Vi handled the paperwork, manned the phones and made sure the orders were filled and shipped in a timely manner. They both exemplified the traits we are trying to recognize and honor with the Ambassadors Award.
