Too much to fit into one title.
The Dogs have just two games left in the regular season. Game 59 of 60 goes tonight at the Frank Crane Arena as the Bulldog Bus - and two busses of volunteers and supporters - leave the Valley and head over the hump.
This is a meeting of two hot teams. The Bulldogs have won 8 straight, the Clippers have won 4 straight.
The Bulldogs have won three straight games against Nanaimo, and all three games in Nanaimo this season.
The Clippers will be playing their final game of the regular season tonight before the playoffs begin on Tuesday so you know they will be coming out fired up.
The Dogs need to come out that way as well or it could be a long night.
Bulldogs PA Announcer (and Alberni Chrysler Salesman) Charles Mealey will join me to provide colour commentary.
Catch the pregame show at 7:15 with the play-by-play at 7:30.
The Dogs finish the home portion of their schedule tomorrow when the Langley Chiefs are in town.
As I mentioned yesterday, Dave Koszegi Re/Max is the game day sponsor and they will be giving away some cool R/C toys. See yesterday's post for more info!
And there is also this important fundraiser
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs, The Dave Koszegi Team, and Angel Magnussen ask you to bring your spare change to Saturday night’s home game to donate to the family of Amber Humphries-Jones. Amber is a 9 year old
Before you come to cheer on the team this Saturday night please fill your pockets with spare change and bring it to donate to one of the Bulldog’s biggest fans, little Amber Humphries–Jones.
Lastly -don't forget that the Dogs are hosting and open mic, meet and greet, and autograph session at Boston Pizza after the game so be sure to head down!
From the "S'Port Alberni" front, here's the other local sports action over the weekend....Hopefully you can get out to cheer on our teams!
First up is the Midget Rep Female team in action Saturday morning at the Multiplex in the Island Finals at 11:45. This is the first time that the locals have made the Island Finals since the team was formed in 2005. Give 'em heck girls!
Next up is the Midget Rep Bulldogs, opening defence of their Island Title at 2:30 on the big ice.
There is also Rugby up at the Pitch on Saturday....
There are three games this Saturday at the Black Sheep facilities on Argyle St. The Ladies are hosting UVic starting at 11:00 am instead of the 11:30 am followed by the Div 1 Men at 12:30 pm hosting the Brit Lions. The Div 2 Men kickoff at 2:00 pm. Ferry times for the Brit Lions necessitate the earlier start. See you there.
Also - some golf action is up on Sunday. I went out and played the last three days, the course is in incredible condition!
This Sunday February 21st Bruce MacDonald will be hosting the Men’s Cherry Creek Shootout Tournament. This competition will be 18 holes of golf, with a shotgun start at 9AM. Lunch and the awarding of prizes takes place around 2 PM The format for the day will be four man teams with the two best net scores counting on each hole.
Please register in the Pro. Shop or by phoning 250-723-5422. You can enter as a foursome or as a single and you will be placed on a team. Don’t forget guests are always welcome at the Alberni Golf Club.
The cost for the day will be $30 for members and $40 for non members. Included in the price will be 18 holes of golf, lunch and prizes. This tournament is just a warm up for the start of the men’s club season opener, which happens on March 28..
That's all I got for now!
