Catching Up With Rob Beck


I always enjoy summer time because you never know who you will bump into, as Flin Flon seems to be a popular destination especially for people that grow up here.



I had the chance to sit down with Flin Flon's Robbie Beck who played with the Flin Flon Bombers between 1990 and 1993, including their Championship season in 93. Rob was back in town for his parents 50th wedding anniversary and was gracious enough to sit down and talk about the good ole days and what it meant to be a Bomber.


We look back on Beck's career including that glorious run that included both the SJHL and Anavet Cups and a chance to play for a National Championship.


We also chat about what Rob has been up to  for the past 25 years and his connection to the club today.
