Wanted: CHB Readers Who Will Play Hockey for Food

As Richard mentioned yesterday, we’re helping to recreate some of the magic from the 2010 Winter Olympics this Saturday, February 12th. The Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association and Five Hole for Food are setting up a couple of street hockey rinks on the corner of Granville and Robson, open to anyone and everyone to play. The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society will also be on-site to collect donations.

To make things interesting, we at CHB have agreed to a mini-tournament involving some of your favorite Canucks bloggers: Canucks Corner, Pass It To Bulis and Head to the Net.

  • 3:00 – 3:45 PM (Rink 2): Canucks Hockey Blog vs. Pass It To Bulis
  • 4:00 – 4:45 PM (Rink 2): Canucks Corner vs. Head to the Net
  • 5:00 – 5:45 PM (Rink 1): Canucks Corner vs. Canucks Hockey Blog
  • 5:00 – 5:45 PM (Rink 2): Pass It To Bulis vs. Head to the Net

Each blog is only required to provide 4 players, after which the rosters will be filled by anyone who wants to join in… so come out, bring a stick and join us if you can. No experience is required. We’re playing purely for fun, and ultimately, we simply hope to relive the magic of the 2010 Winter Games and hopefully help a good cause.
