We’ve played street hockey for charity in downtown Vancouver but it’s now table hockey’s turn to gather players and support two great local causes. Local sports blog and podcast Pucked in the Head is organizing the Vancouver Table Hockey Extravaganza Friday, September 20 and Saturday September 21, 2013.
Vancouver Table Hockey Extravaganza Challenge
On Friday at 1:00pm Whitecaps FC anthem singer Marie Hui will sing O Canada! at Robson Square to start off the event that includes a world record attempt. The attempt will see eight people play table hockey for 30 consecutive hours to raise funds for Canuck Place and food for Five Hole for Food. The public are welcome to stop by, cheer on the players, and make sure they don’t sit, lean, or get any kind of assistance while they try for the world record.
The main event will be on Saturday, September 21st at 1:00pm when an open tournament will begin. You can register in advance online for $25 if you would like to play. Prizes include Vancouver Giants tickets and a Stiga table hockey game signed by many of this year’s Vancouver Canucks. BC Floorball will have a demonstration rink on site both days of the event, allowing passersby and donors the opportunity to play floorball.
