When the Manitoba Moose come to town in November to play against the Abbotsford Heat, I want to get a group of people to head out to Abbotsford and watch the Canucks prospects hard at work. A group of us went last year and we had a great time. The games against the Moose games are one of the few that the Heat sell out all season.
When we went last year, the crowd was a solid 50-50 split of Moose and Heat fans. Every time we started a “Go Moose Go” chant it was countered by a “Go Heat Go” chant. The game was a blast – there’s nothing quite the same as watching the prospects give it their all to get noticed by the big team.
When: Saturday, November 27th (there’s no Canucks game that night) – 7pm
Where: Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Center
What: Manitoba Moose vs Abbotsford Heat
Tickets: Tickets are $20 each if we get a group of 10 or more people. We’ll be in the Orange Section. We’ll be sitting together and making sure that Canucks Nation is well represented at the game.
Last year we carpooled and groups of us headed out. You can drive to Abbotsford on your own, or let us know if you’d like to organize a carpool. If anyone’s up for it, we can also meet up and get together for a group dinner at the restaurant across from the arena. Because it’s the weekend, there should be plenty of time for us to head out to Abbotsford before the game.
