Not To Be Trusted With Knives

{November 14, 2007}   Support My Hockey Team!!

hockeylogo So, speaking of Vegas, want to support my hockey team to play in a tournament there? We are trying to raise enough funds to go to the Lady Luck Cup tournament in Las Vegas in April.

We are doing a fund raising raffle and I need to sell at least $50 worth of tickets (preferably many more than that).

Here’s the 411:

  • Tickets are 1 for $2 or 3 for $5
  • First Prize: a beer fridge full of beer
  • Second Prize: two tickets to a Canucks game
  • Third Prize: a trio of 26ers (probably like rum, vodka and gin, or something like that)

We will be doing the draw at our fundraising pub night on January 19th and you don’t have to be at the pub night to win. I know the prizes aren’t very portable, so for my long distance readers, if you want to buy a ticket or seven and then you win, I could sell the prize and send you the cash!

Wanna buy some raffle tickets? You know you do! Email me: apo_b100 AT hotmail DOT com

P.S. If we raise enough money, I’m sure that my team will get up to all kinds of hijinks in Vegas and I promise to blog said hijinks. I would expect it would be something along the lines of this type of thing. So you could consider buying a raffle ticket to be an investment in your future blog reading enjoyment.

P.P.S. Another fundraiser possibility that we considered, but didn’t have enough time to do this year was a calendar. Sort of the “girls of hockey” kind of thing. Would you buy a calendar of me and my teammates like, for example, wearing our hockey jerseys and looking all cute and suchlike? Just doing a little market research for next year….

Darren says:

Are you PayPal enabled? If so, I’ll buy some.

“Would you buy a calendar of me and my teammates like, for example, wearing our hockey jerseys and looking all cute and suchlike?”

That depends. How hot is the rest of the team, compared to, say, Brendan Shanahan?

Kalev says:

Hockey sucks. That is all.


Beth says:

Darren – sweet! I do have a PayPal account, but (and I’m a little embarrassed to say this), I have no idea how to get other people to pay me through PayPal, as I’ve only ever used to buy shoes on eBay.

In terms of hotness, I’d say that everyone on the team is hotter than Brendan Shanahan. We have players from ages 18-50 (I think most of the team is around my age though), although you’d not believe the 50 year old is 50… she’s like a GILF.

Katie says:

Do you accept US dollars? They’re not so impressive anymore.

Sarah says:

Will you still be selling them come the holidays? If so – Dave and I will buy some when you are here (rather than paypal or whatever). If not – we will figure something out in the interim.

Beth says:

Katie – I do not accept US dollars. I only accept *real* money =P

Sarah – I will totally still be selling them over the holidays – the draw is Jan 19, so plenty of time to force all my friends to fork over some cash =)
