Special PuB NiGHT – Review

Yesterday we had a special PuB NiGHT going on at the Bourbon on Cordova St. Together with some of our INTERNeX partners we arranged this special event for you! The night started at 9pm when some of our INTERNeX candidates entered the pub. The theme of the party was ‘Been Around The World’ so a lot of people where dressed as their own country. To give you a good example, our candidate Flo from Austria was wearing his ‘lederhosen’ to the event, which was absolutely awesome!

Moose Travel was hosting some fun games during the evening. Some of our candidates wanted to play, so they were divided into teams. In the first round the teams had to crowd surf one of their team members, who had to drink beer with a straw afterwords. The second game was quarter bounce, where the players had to bounce several quarters into a cup. In the last round there was a real battle between the teams. Every team had to pick one team member to battle against the other team. Those persons were blindfolded and were wearing a helmet with an empty can on top of it. In the battle the players had to try to hit the can off the helmet of the other team player! Of course there were prizes to win last night, and team Jet Wild was the winner of the evening! They won Moose Whistler tours, tickets to the Giants playoff game and t-shirts!

The games were a lot of fun to watch and everyone was enjoying themselves. We had no cover, no line up and drink specials the whole evening, so basically we had a GREAT evening! Thanks for coming everyone. Check out the pictures from last night at our Flickr Page. Hope to see everyone next Wednesday!

Cheers,
Your PR-team

Picture of the week!

This week we have a funny picture from Adam. He lived in the staff house and told me that it was his turn now to have an awesome picture of the week on the INTERNeX blog’ . He really wanted to be the picture of the week because this week is his last week here in Canada and he wanted to show the other candidates how much fun he had here! He was  in Vancouver for the Work&Travel program and worked at a coffee company for 7 months. He describes his time here as AWESOME!
In the picture you can see him passionately eating from his pizza in a restaurant in Victoria. He was there with his friend Kevin! He choose this picture because it is typical Canadian with him wearing his Canada sweater.

This week it was Adam’s turn, but maybe next time your picture will be picture of the week!! Do you have a picture of a great experience here in Canada? Send it to pr@internexcanada.com with a small description or story!

Cheers,

Star Wars: In Concert coming to Canada!

5 years after the final episode, Star Wars is back!! Fans of the Star Wars movies can enjoy the music during Star Wars: In Concert. The tour, which started in October 2009, is finally coming to Canada! The Canadian Tour will start tonight at the General Motors Place in Vancouver and will go to places such as Edmonton, Calgary and London(ONT)!


Star Wars: In Concert is a unique event that combines John William’s unforgettable music, performed by a live symphony orchestra and chorus, with specially edited footage for all six Star Wars Films.  Actor Anthony Daniels, for the Star Wars fans better know as C-3PO, will introduce each segment of the two-hour show, guiding you through the Star Wars story in a fresh an exciting way. John William, the creator of the Star Wars music, won the best-original- score at the 1978 Academy Awards. He was also nominated for the same award for The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983).
“ We’ve taken the key themes from the music and cut together all the images that fit with each theme, so you can really get a sense of how the music played into the images,” said George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars Saga. “
Besides the concert, you can also enjoy an exclusive exhibit of Star Wars costumes, props, artifacts, production artworks and specially created behing-the-scenes videos from the LucasFilm Archives. Many of these pieces are leaving Skywalker Ranch for the first time. The exhibit features many classic fan favorit artifacts, as well as several new, never before seen items, such as:
–          Full costumes for Jedi Masters Kit Fisto and Plo Koon
–          Never before seen props from the films, including blasters and helmets from Coruscant, Tatooine and other iconic Star Wars locations.
