Jerry heading to Nelson for Hockey Day in Canada

My amigo Jerry is heading to Nelson for Hockey Day in Canada.  Hopefully, he’ll get to party with Ron and Don and Stanley and can provide some insightful commentary (from what he remembers after anyhow) – Here’s what he says:

This saturday

I will be going to Nelson (about 30-45 minutes away) to take part in some of the hockey day in canada festivities. It is a CBC deal where every year they pick a town to broadcast from between games. (It is a triple header day – all 3 games are Canadian teams versus Canadian teams) There will be some puck-shooting accuracy contests, a peewee junior game, a major junior game between the Nelson Leafs and the Sicamouse team (can’t remember their name) , and the part I am most excited about : you get to take your picture with The Stanley Cup! whoo & hoo! All festivities are free as well! Ron Maclean & Don Cherry will be there so I will likely see them somewhere along the way too! I am soooo excited about this. I will definitely be posting pictures of the day at some point sunday morning. This is gonna be sooo cool.

 

Whatcha think?
