I ran into Mayor McRae later in the day at the Raise a Reader BBQ at the Alberni Valley Times and he had nothing but great things to say about the Bulldogs choice as Captain, saying he was incredibly impressed with Sam as they stood and sold papers for three hours!
And another special thanks to Shane Morrow of the Alberni Valley Times who apparently gave me permission through Barb to use the picture on the blog. Thanks Shane!
Here's an update from local Wrestler Travis Cross from the World Championships in Denmark:
Hello everyone from the World Championships in Herning, Denmark. I only have a couple of minutes on the computer so I will make it short.
My first match I beat Mongolia 1-1, 4-0. I moved very well and felt on my game.
My second match I lost to Venezuela 1-0,1-1,0-1. I didn't wrestle well, it is a disappointing loss. I will not let that happen again.
We had a few other wins from our Canadian team but unfortunately no podium results.
All the best.
And an update on the Bantam A Bulldogs, thanks to Simon Read
BANTAM BULLDOGS ARE BACK
The AVMHA Bantam A Bulldogs opened their season with two exhibition wins at Weyerhauser last weekend. On Saturday they faced off against Campbell River Tyees and came away with a 6-2 victory. The Bulldogs finished on top of Oceanside 6-2 in Sunday’s game. The whole team was contributed to the weekend results. The coaches will build on these first games as they try to forge a really strong team from a group of players who are still getting used to each other.
The Bantam Bulldogs will be playing their first placement round games away next weekend. They play Cowichan at 1:30 PM at Fuller Lake Arena on Saturday September 26 and Nanaimo at Nanaimo Ice Centre at 3:30 on September 27.
Bantam Bulldogs celebrate their 3rd goal in the game against Campbell River last Saturday.
#19 Jas Sidhu, #14 Chase Gaudreault, #8 Logan Savard.
