Canucks @ Hawks to open series tonight, Mini World Cup opens today.
The Canucks open the second round tonight in Chicago as they visit the Hawks at the United Center. Get it all on 93.3 The Peak FM with the pregame show starting at 5:30.
I will most likely be missing the game, but that's ok, as I'm supporting a good cause. It's Gold in the Net's annual Golf Tournament today at Morning Star Golf Course in Parksville. The tournament raises funds for the Aaron C. Cornwell Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Don't forget that the Mini World Cup starts today in the Valley! Here's more details...
Alberni Valley Youth Soccer to host 68 teams in the 10th Annual Mini World Cup.
Teams from all over the Upper Island will travel to Port Alberni on May 1 and 2 to participate in the 10th Annual Mini World Cup. Teams from Nanaimo, Ladysmith, Oceanside, Comox, Campbell River and Powell River will join Port Alberni and be split into 4 continents to vie for the title. Each continent will be identified by a distinctly coloured t-shirt and points will be accumulated by continent to determine the winner.
Three girls divisions (U9, U10 and U11) will complement the four boys divisions (U8, U9, U10 and U11) in the fun tournament. Each team will play four games over the two days and will participate in a parade at 12:30 Saturday at Bob Dailey Stadium. Teams will also be creating banners for their teams for use in the parade. The top three team banners will receive a prize. Sunday local organizers will be providing lunch for the players.
