Coquitlam Express Hockey Game – Experience IT Review

Last Friday we went to see a Junior A hockey game. Coquitlam Express played against the King George Spruce Kings. It was an amazing game and thanks to all of you for coming!

Coquitlam Express plays in the British Columbia Hockey League. Junior A is for players aged between 16 to 20 years old and is one level below the Canadian Hockey League.

It is definitely really different from a Canucks game, but it was a great game to watch! We were sitting really close to the rink, which made watching the game a lot more fun. The players were really fast and sometim16998697_10155035298992103_2894308372378493389_n.jpges even pushing each other to the glass sides to get the puck. There was something happening every single minute, even during the breaks. During the first break they did a racing match with two boys from the audience and during the second break they played a game with frisbees to win money. During the breaks some of us also bought hotdogs, as this is the tradition while watching a hockey game. The teams were equally good in the beginning of the game, but after the first period the Spruce Kings became better and made some more goals. The final score was Coquitlam 1 – Prince George 4.

It was the first hockey game for many of us. Therefore, it was sometimes a bit hard to understand what happened on the field in the beginning. However, it was a very good preparation for our Canucks game next month!

We had an amazing night and hope that you all did too! I hope to see you Wednesday on PuB NiGHT.

What to do on the weekend

It’s Friday again! Time for a new what to do on the weekend blogpost. It’s going to be as sunny as last week, so time to get out and do something!

screen-shot-2017-02-24-at-11-46-19-amFirst of all, some of us are going to see the last game of the season of the Junior A Team Coquitlam Express. It will be a great game to watch, so we are really looking forward to it! If you still want to come, then send us a message before 3PM! After that you can always still book tickets yourself, but then there is no guarantee that you can sit next to us.

Another event tonight is the Grand Finale of the Battle of the Brush. It is a live painting competition in the Heritage Hall on Main Street. The finalists will start painting around 8:30PM, after that the audience can vote on the winner of the competition and the winner will be announced around 11:15PM. Sounds like a really cool event to join!

Farmers Markets are an amazing place to buy fresh vegetables and fruits and a lot of other things. There is one on Sunday in Hastings Park, which is in East Vancouver, so close to downtown. Another good option to go is the Farmers Market in the Nat Bailey Stadium. This one is on Saturday and is next to the Queen Elizabeth Park, so you could make a big day trip. Both markets open at 10AM and close around 2PM.

This weekend it is the last weekend of the Talking Stick Festival. It is a festival to explore aboriginal culture through their arts. They show this through fairs, theatre, dance, film, music and nightlife. It is an amazing event to get to know more about the aboriginal art and First Nation’s culture.

I am looking forward to see you tonight or on the next PuB NiGHT!
