Thank God It’s Friday!

It is Friday again, which normally means: WEEKEND. However, today it is Good Friday, so probably some of you have a day off today! Easter is also right around the corner – it falls on Sunday April 24. So what are you going to do this Easter Weekend? Here are some tips for the people who have no plans yet!

VANCOUVER

Who doesn’t want to celebrate Easter with the Easter bunny, Easter egg hunts and all sorts of games? Maybe it is not for everyone, however if you would like to get the real Easter feeling, you should go to Stanley Park and celebrate ‘Easter in the park’. There will be an Easter egg hunt for all ages. Also, they will have a train riding on the park’s famous miniature railway. This event starts today (Friday April 22) and runs until Monday, April 25th. It starts at 11 am till 4 pm. It will probably be quite sunny this Saturday, so it will be a good day to go the park anyway :D. Don’t forget to bring your Easter basket!

WHISTLER

We have already post about this last weekend, however the TELUS World Ski & Snowboard Festival is still running until this weekend. This year the TWSSF will celebrate its sweet sixteen and they will do it in style. It’s a really big event full of snowboarding, skiing, snow, partying and fun! Their main slogan is: ‘‘Party in April, Sleep in May’. Live it, breathe it, believe it. The festival started April 15 and the last day of the festival will be this Sunday the 24th.

REVELSTOKE

For the sporty people under us in Revelstoke, there is the Annual Stoke to Spoke Race. This is a triathlon involving snowboarding or skiing, biking and navigating an obstacle course to the finish line. When reached the finish line they will have to chug a beverage. This annual race has been held to celebrate the transition from winter to spring. You can compete either as individual or in teams of three. Of course there are also prizes to win, for the top three finishers in solo and team categories, along with best costume and best wipeout, and also the oldest and youngest competitors.
The festival starts at 8.30 am and will end around 4 pm. Go and cheer for the participants or just enjoy the live music by Cornstarr.

Olympic Update

So during the Olympics you can expect to find daily updates on the medal situation concerning all countries not just Canada. Our blog, our facebook page, even twitter will keep you guys in the loop in case you don’t have time to watch all the events. So far Canada is in fourth place, tied with Norway, at a total of 5 medals. We have 2 gold medals, 2 silver and 1 bronze…so not bad at all! But i know we can do even better then this, just you wait and see lol. Yesterday we managed to get yet another gold medal and Maelle Ricker just blew it out the park with her fantastic finish in the ladies snowboard cross. She was well ahead of the rest of her competitors so it was an amazing win for us. Way to go Canada! And another one of our latest medals was won by Mike Robertson, who if you ask me totally looks like a younger Hugh Grant haha sorry got a little side tracked there. Anyways everyone was placing bets saying that he would for sure win gold. He managed to lead the majority of the big final, but sadly landed short on one of the rollers, which allowed the reigning Olympic gold medalist Seth Wescott of the US to pass him. Wescott ended up crossing the finish line just inched ahead of Robertson. But second place is certainly nothing to cry over…Congrats Robertson!
