After doing a bunch of paperwork on Thursday - I sat and watched the first Semi Final of the Junior Hockey, between the USA and Sweden. - It was pretty slow for the first period with no goals, but by the 3rd, the Swedes had opened up  a 4-0 lead, and in spite of a number of penalties - they went on to take the win 4-2.

Later it was Canada versus the Czechs, and while the Czech team came out strong and did in fact score the first goal - it was all Canada after that with a final score of 8-2 - Now it’s on to the Gold medal round against Sweden


This is a pic from the Sheffield Indoor last year, showing Adam Raga flying high on the TRS and also taking the win - Can he repeat in 2018 ? Your guess is as good as mine.   - Welsh lad Iwan Roberts will make his Indoor debut at Sheffield on his new Steve Saunders sponsored TRS.

(250) 545-6139.   SAVE SAVE  SAVE !!!!


The weather forecast is for warmer but with freezing rain - so the roads will probably be a mess - drive carefully children !! - The Ice race at Stake Lake near Kamloops is cancelled because of poor ice conditions. - Just took the recycling boxes out & I see we had about 3″ of fresh snow to add to the fun.!

Finally saw something on the Calgary bike show this weekend - The poster explains who they are - but with the new restrictions proposed by the Alberta Government -  all Off road riding on Crown land in Alberta, is threatened - It appears they only listen to Environmentalist groups ( including US based big money supporters)  - As I’ve said on this blog before - the lack of interest and lobbying support by the factories, is mind boggling - they will only wake up when sales of both ATV’s and Off road bikes hit the bottom.
