now THAT is atmosphere.

Ah, the Pound. Too bad that another year of hockey is done in the great house of dogs. Every rink has their moments, but the Multiplex is just different. The atmosphere is second to none. The OOOHS the AHHHS the crowd on the edge of their seats and on their feets and hanging on every play.

End to end action, culminated by the "pop" of the crowd as I call it, as a goal is scored. Throw in the fact that the Dogs were down 3-1 after one and had just scored their second straight moments earlier to tie the game at 3-3, and the crowd was just a little more nuts for this one. And so was I, haha.


It will be way to long until we get to hear that again!

Thanks to Tony for picking me up the two pucks from Cornell and Brown last month when he went down to watch is son Devin, (former Bulldog Captain) play. He sent me an email after the Brown-Cornell game to tell me that there were four former Bulldogs on the starting line up that night- Scali and Krantz for Cornell and Timberlake and Zolnierczyk for Brown. Very cool, thanks Tony!

I ordered the above piece of artwork from Allie at the Angel Variety Show. I couldn't believe how quick she got it finished. Check out Allie's website HERE or email her HERE if you would like her to do something up for you! Very very cool, thanks again Allie!

Have a Timmy's for Travis, and get down to the BC's!

I got this email from Tom McEvay yesterday! Get to Timmys and get to the Multiplex this weekend to check out some great wrestling action.

Hi everyone, if you have time Friday morning (7-9 am) drop by the Port Alberni Tim Horton’s and you will be supporting our Olympian Travis Cross and our Alberni Wrestling program. Bumper stickers and T-shirts from JAL Designs will be available for purchase there and at the BC High School Wrestling Championships Friday and Saturday at the Multiplex. They are also being sold at many locations around town. Our goal is to have every Port Alberni car wearing a Travis Cross Beijing bumper sticker by the day Travis wrestles at the Olympics on August 21st, this summer.

Please try to come by the Multiplex sometime on Friday or Saturday and support our local wrestlers as well as the over 500 grade 8-12 wrestlers from all over BC who will be competing at the High School Championships. Wrestling goes from 9 am -8 pm Friday on 8 mats. In addition to the BC’s we have one mat devoted to Elementary wrestlers from 12:30-2:30 pm Friday. Starting at 2 pm Friday Travis will be doing a training session with other National team members and at 2:30 pm Neill and Dunn Middle Schools will be having a dual meet. The preliminaries of the BC’s will continue Saturday morning from 9 am – 11:30 am including matches for 3rd to 6th place. All this action is free of charge.

The big show will be Saturday afternoon from 2 -5:30 pm with the finals. The doors will open at 1:30 pm and you will need a ticket. Tickets are available at Echo Centre, Vast and ADSS. They will also be sold Friday at the event. On Saturday the price goes from $5 to $10 per ticket IF THERE ARE ANY LEFT. We expect to sell out Saturday so plan to be there it will be a great show including an opening speech from Olympian Travis Cross.

All the best.
