Bulldogs host Victoria tonight, FASTHOCKEY BROADCAST, Salmon Festival opens tonight
The Dogs were last in action Wednesday night in Duncan where they fell 6-5 to the Capitals in overtime while Victoria also last played Wednesday night in Nanaimo where they lost 6-2 to the Clippers.
This is NO WHERE near the product that you can come to expect throughout the season when we are broadcasting on 93.3 The Peak FM and Fast Hockey takes our audio broadcast to sync up with their pay-per-view. We won't have any produced elements, or interviews, or anything along those lines.
This is strictly a volunteer effort to
a) make sure all our equipment works
b) to make sure I still remember how to do play-by-play (HA)
c) to give you an opportunity to be able to follow the game tonight.
As it stands right now, I'll be calling the game solo, as Bruce MacDonald had to head out of town this weekend.
The 44th Annual Port Alberni Salmon Festival kicks off tonight with opening ceremonies at 7pm and fireworks at approximately 9:00pm.
I encourage you to get down to Clutesi Haven Marina through the weekend to check out the festivities, but if you can't, just tune in on your radio - or computer - or phone - to 93.3 The Peak FM as we will be broadcasting live for 28 hours - yes TWENTY EIGHT - hours on the grounds through the weekend.
A very long weekend for me - broadcasting the Dogs game tonight, live at Salmon Fest tomorrow, on the bus immediately afterwards to head down to the Dogs game in Victoria, back late and back on the air early Sunday Morning at Salmon Fest. I'll get the chance to go fishing Monday, before heading back to the grounds to broadcast live once again up to the closing ceremonies that the 93.3 The Peak FM crew will once again host.
