As many of you may know, Richard Loat of the very cleverly named Canucks Hockey Blog is doing a cross-Canada road trip this summer. He'll be playing a little ball hockey against local fans and bloggers in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and Victoria. At each stop, he's hoping to generate donations for local food banks.
The Toronto game is scheduled for 3PM on Thursday, July 1st (Canada Day) at Withrow Park. The outdoor rink, where the Leafs held a public outdoor practice in 1998, is located south of the Danforth, between Logan and Carlaw. Closest Subways are Pape or Chester.
Richard is looking for players for the Toronto game. If you would like to play some ball hockey with your fellow bloggers and Leaf fans, please get in touch with Richard via email. You'll need to bring a stick and some canned goods to the rink on July 1 (I'd also suggest a cup, hockey gloves and other assorted protective gear...)
