Hello and thanks for stopping by the blog. Got back Sunday from 17 days of holidays to my hometown Flin Flon, then off to Brandon and Sandy Hook, Manitoba. Was a great time. 2 weddings, 1 funeral, some golf, fishing, swimming, and beach relaxing. Was great to get back to the rink Monday though. Over my holidays the Bulldogs made a trade, moving Jim Patterson to the AJHL, aquiring 1987 forward Brad Harding and future consideratons in the process. Just want to take a moment to wish Jim all the best with the Eagles. Petey is a great team guy and a true character. Monday night the Bulldogs announced they had aquired a goalie, 1986 born Ryan Lafferty who played last year with the Wellington Dukes and Pembroke Lumber Kings. Welcome to the team Brad and Ryan, and best of luck. Read the releases from the Dogs website by clicking the links below.

The big "Black and White" 93.3 The Peak vs Alberni Valley Times intersquad media challenge game goes tomorrow night at 7:00 (Wed August 23rd) I'm looking to improve my coaching record to 3 and 1. After losing the inagural media game in 2003-2004 the radio station has won the last two contests to retain the trophy. Here's hoping it's at the station for another year. Should be a good game. It's also for a good cause- entry is a non perishable food item to the bread of life. I encourage you to get out to the game to show the new dogs what they can expect out of a crowd. Don't forget to cheer for team 93.3 The Peak FM. I'm on the hunt for a ringer assistant coach as I've lost the Ace. Rick Methot of the Alberni Valley Times has recruited Bruce MacDonald as his assistant.
I've had people tell me I write to much on here. OK, I'm DONE. Just two more quick things. The Dogs open their exhibition schedule Saturday night as they host the Nanaimo Clippers at 7pm. Next Wednesday the 30th the Dogs host the Cowichan Valley Capitals, before heading on the road.
And last but not least- A reposting of my 2005-2006 Bulldogs Highlight Reel video. Reposting it for any new Bulldogs fans that may find the blog, for any new players, and for any old fans, who forget how nuts the Dawg Pound gets and how good the hockey is in the BCHL.
Thanks for stopping by the blog!
