INTERNeX Canada: Where to watch the Olympic games

The Olympic Games are ON and for those interested I found a short list where you can watch the Olympic games live in Vancouver, click here. Or you can stream the Games at home on CBC Olympics.

Most important update of the Sochi Games is that GERMANY has the most gold medals at the moment. However Norway and the US have the most medals in total with 13 medals. Canada has 10 medals in total with 4 gold medals.

Good to know, the finals are on February 20th at 9am for women and on February 23rd for men at 4am.

 

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday and do not forget to come out in the evening for skating on the ice.

Cloverdale Rodeo – Yeeehaw!

If anyone told me that I’d be watching grown men ride wild bulls in Vancouver, I wouldn’t have believed them. Little did I know though, that I would soon be having a great time at the annual Cloverdale Rodeo.

Yesterday I drove to Surrey with a friend to watch the second largest community rodeo in Canada. This rodeo attracts competitors and spectators worldwide, with many of the participants hailing from Alberta. This traditional exhibition brings agricultural and horticultural exhibits, including arts and crafts, home baking and canning, needle work, photography, sewing and flori-culture to the already, fun-filled long weekend. The exhibition, along with a wide assortment of family activities, truly makes the Cloverdale Rodeo & Exhibition “much more than just a rodeo”.

The Cloverdale Rodeo is well known for its bull riding, world-class cowboys and enthusiastic rodeo fans, but it’s also famous for its party scene. At the Rodeo, the party starts before noon and doesn’t stop until well after sundown. Known throughout the rodeo world, the Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair’s Longhorn Saloon, featured live music from May 20th until yesterday. To open up the festivities,  Canadian Rock Legend 54-40 kicked-off with a great performance.

Yesterday was the finals, with prizes as much as $50,000! For that much money, heck – even I would hop on the back of a bucking horse! Check out some of my pictures below!


Keep checking back for more exciting events like this one happening in your area!

For those of you in Vancouver, don’t forget about the INTERNeX BBQ Kick-off event happening May 29! Also make sure to sign-up for the 2-Day Whistler trip leaving June 19-20! Limited amount of space available!

Have a great long weekend everyone, and I’ll see you at INTERNeX PuB NiGHT at Malone’s Bar and Grill, May 26!

Cheers,

Laura

Olympic Schedule 2010-02-23

So here are some of the Olympic events going on today that might of be interest to you all:

1) First and foremost cannot forget to include the epic hockey battle occurring today @ 16:30 between Canada and Germany’s mens hockey teams! This game is the latest hurdle these two teams must overcome in order to progress into Quarter Finals. If Canada does manage to win this game…which Simon thinks is a sure thing…then the Canadian team will have to resurge their strength and go in it again for another game the next day against Russia. Let’s keep our fingers crossed otherwise their will be a load of disappointed fans!

2) Men’s 1,0000m Speed Skating event @ 11:00am. This is a medal event so let’s see which country manages to make the podium!

3) @ 14:03 Ladies’ ski cross finals (free style skiing) medal event!

4) And then this last one i’m just putting in because i love ladies figure skating and the short program is on today at 4:30 and i’m totally going to be setting my alarm for this one. Canada isn’t doing so great with their current standing being 15th and 26th, so i think we might be out of the running for a medal but hopefully our ranks will move up. We will just have to wait and see!

GOOD LUCK ATHLETES!
