Here's a look at the series from the Alberni Valley Times written by Quintin Winks - CLICK HERE TO READ IT
Some of the same material is in this story as well, but here's a look from the Nanaimo side of the puck, from Michael Briones in the Nanaimo Daily News. Read on.......
It's the first playoff action for the Dogs since the 2006-2007 season, and the first time they open a series at home since 2005-2006.
Don't forget to MAKE THE RINK RED
Catch the pregame show starting at 6:40 tonight on 93.3 The Peak with Rick and I, with the puck dropping at 7.
Don't forget all the pregame festivities kicking off at 4:30 in the parking lot. The Peak's Jolie McMullan will be doing her show LIVE from the rink getting everyone pumped up with "Manther" performing live, and the 3 on 3 Hockey Tourney kicking off. Again, it's an "all ages, fun tournament" so keep that in mind. And don't forget to come equipped with a helmet, gloves, and stick and be ready to have some fun! The winners get 3 tickets to tonights game!
We'll do it all over again tomorrow starting at 4:30 again with Jolie broadcasting live. Lazy Mike and the Rockin' Recliners will play live, and the 3 on 3 tournament will go again!
Pack the Shack, don't forget the standing ovations, make some noise - be LOUD AND PROUD, and support the guys! It should be fun, I wish it was 7 o'clock already!
Here's a quick note from Tom McEvay regarding the 2012 RBC Cup bid - your support is needed tonight!
Can you please add to your radio coverage of the Bulldogs game tonight that the Bid Committee for the 2012 RBC Cup will have volunteers at the game asking people to fill out a Supporter Cards that we will deliver to Hockey Canada when we are in Calgary March 17th for our presentation to the selection committee. If the community wants the National Junior A Championship here in May 2012 this is one way you can help us now. We want to take at least 1500 signed supporter cards to Calgary next week.
Big thanks to Jim Clark for sharing this information with me - Congrats and best of luck to Jayme and the Pandas...
Thought I would drop you a note about Jayme. She is at the University of Alberta playing ice hockey for the Pandas. After a 23-1 regular season and winning 4 playoff games they are on their way to the CIS National Championships that start on Thursday at Antigonish Nova Scotia. Their division is the Canada West that includes BC to Manitoba which they won to qualify. There are 2 round robin pools and theres is #2 Sir Wilfred Laurier, #3 Alberta and #5 St. Francis Xavier University. It appears that #1 McGill should have an easy time in the other round robin pool where they will be playing St. Marys and Montreal. Thought this might be a great story for those aspiring young female hockey players that if you work hard some great things can happen.
Thanks again Jim...And speaking of those aspiring young female hockey players - here's a great way to GET BETTER! Thanks to Diane for the heads up!
How are things? How about them Olympics - nothing can top that! Maybe the Bulldogs taking a run to their Cup... can't wait! Anyways, through the U17 Legacy fund we recieved a grant (Thanks to our biggest supporter, Deb Haggard) for female development in the Valley and we are offering, in association with Parks & Rec, a Free Girls hockey camp March 28th at the Multiplex. Some of our Midget A girls will be running the camp and a few PeeWee girls will be helping also. It's all about the girls! We are always encouraging girls in the valley to try out this great sport.
Thank you for your support, much appreciated...
