S'Port Alberni! Busy weekend.... Nolan Graham on THE PEAK this morning, Charity Classic , THANKS BURNABY JOE, Pee Wee Girls Provincial Fastpitch...
Alright, down to business here as I have plenty to talk about and not a lot of time to do it!
Alberni Valley Bulldogs Head Coach and GM Nolan Graham will be on THE PEAK morning show just after 8:00am today to talk about all things Bulldogs - their hockey camp coming up, the need for Billets for the upcoming season, AND - I'm sure there will be a couple of words said on how the task of assembling the team has been going over the summer.
The Alberni Golf Club in Cherry Creek is THE PLACE to be this weekend, with the 16th Annual Charity Classic kicking off tonight with the Wine and Cheese followed by the Golf, Party, Silent and Live Auction and who knows what else going tomorrow night. I know what else happens tomorrow night and that's the honouring Port Alberni Native and recently retired NHL referee Rob Schick. If you aren't in for the golf, come for the dinner and for the party! For more info, call the Alberni Golf Club at 250-723-5422 or the office for dinner tickets at 250-723-7111 but for goodness sakes HURRY!!!
"Burnaby" Joe Sakic is hanging up. And all I can say is THANKS. What a classy guy, what an incredible player and leader. I had hoped that he would hang on for one more season to hopefully play the Olympics at HOME, but you can't argue with someone making the decision to end their career. I don't know about you, but I will ALWAYS remember him from THIS GAME. And Bob Cole. JOE SAKIC SCORES!!! I'm not sure how many people remember that Sakic was MVP of the 2002 Salt Lake Olympics.
The Alberni Valley Blazers are hosting the Pee Wee "B" Girls Fastpitch Provincials this weekend, with action going from today all the way until the final game at 3:00pm Sunday.
16 - yes, SIXTEEN teams are in town for this event.
The Blazers play at 11am and 5:00pm on Diamond #1 and again tomorrow at 8:30 and 12:30pm again on Diamond #1.
Opening ceremonies go at 1pm today again at Diamond #1.
Good luck to the Blazers and all teams participating.
Don't forget the sunscreen!
