Canucks Open Practice Recapby
I promised myself I wouldn’t do any more blogging this weekend but we just got back from GM Place where we had a lot of fun being a part of the Ultimate Canucks Search booth. By “we” I mean The Crazy Canucks of course. Here are some photos from our exciting morning in Canuck-land.
Free pass to the free event.

Ultimate Canucks Search, do crazy things to show how big of a fan you are and win stuff.
