The 7th annual Canada vs USA game is set for Saturday June 15th, starting at 12:00 noon @ Adams Elementary. As in years past, this is a best-of-7 game series. A family-friendly celebration BBQ will be held at 4pm @ Rainer and Kelly's (7302 28th Ave NW).
Roster space is limited. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate anyone and everyone who shows up for the game. Preference will be given to the players who come out to our weekly games on a regular basis. Showing up once a year just for the Can/Am game won't guarantee you a roster spot. If you are interested in playing for either Team Canada or Team USA, you must submit your name to the appropriate team captain for their consideration. If you haven't talked to your team captain yet, get on it! I've heard rumors that both rosters are already locked...
Team captains are:
Team Canada: Vincent Payette
Team USA: Benny Dickinson
If you are neither an American nor a Canadian citizen but still want to play in the Can/Am game, send me your name and country of birth. The team captains and I will work out a fair and balanced determination of what team you should play on.
Team USA wears blue, Team Canada wears white. No black instead of blue, no grey instead of white. No exceptions!
Post-Game BBQ - EVERYONE WELCOME
Although the rosters are limited for the game, the BBQ is open to the entire SSH.com community and your families. This year's post game festivities will be hosted by Kelly & Rainer (7302 28th Ave NW). We have hired a grillman who will be doing the cooking for us (no food truck this year), and we're assured that food will be hot and ready by the time the first guests arrive. This is not a potluck event, however feel free to bring something to share if you want to. The cost of the BBQ per person is by donation. Donate what you feel is adequate and/or what you're able to afford. We will have at least one beer keg as well as non-alcoholic beverages for the kids and lushes. Kelly mentions that it can get chilly in their yard once the sun goes down, so bring a sweater. Picnic/camping chairs also a good idea. NHL playoff game will be televised.
