Canadians...will you vote for me???? PLEASE!

    Hey there to all my fellow Canadians!  I have been working on winning a huge contest here in Canada called 'Hockeyville' and have entered my town as a contender.  So far, we are doing really well, but come March 8th, we will need a lot of votes to make it to the Top 5!

    The winning community of the contest will receive 100,000 dollars to upgrade their local arena (which we badly need) and get to host a pre-season NHL game on their home ice.  A dream come true for most Canadians!

    At the moment, we don't even know if we are in the Top 10, but I have been interviewed by CBC and Radio Canada twice and we are sure there is a lot of interest in our little town.  But we will only find out during the CBC Hockey Night in Canada show on March 8th.  Our town is called Saint Raymond, Quebec and if we make it to the top 10 we will need Canada's vote to make it to the Top 5. 

    I'm just putting out some feelers here, so if you would consider voting for us, please let me know and I will post all the information as soon as it becomes available.

    Thanks in advance!

    Oh yeah, and check out our town on the Hockeyville site here:

    Here is an update on the Hockeyville Contest!  On February 19th, our little town welcomed a tv crew from CBC (canadian broadcasting company) to do a report on our passion for hockey.  It was a lot of fun and we were able to show the crew some things they had never seen before.  I will post the links to youtube so you can see for yourself.  In two weeks we will know if we made it to Top 10 when they broadcast the show on March 8th.  On that date, if we have made it to top 10, voting starts at 9:01 pm ET.  I still need all of you and I will put all the info on here as soon as it gets closer to the date.  Meanwhile, ifyou have any ideas on how to accumulate votes, I would appreciate any tips.  for the next two weeks our committee will be working on a voting campaign and we can use all the help we can get.  THANK YOU EVERYONE!

    Here is a link to watch some of the video from Saint Raymond:

    Its not long, but just shows you some of the ideas we had to prove to CBC and Canada that we are very passionate about hockey.  The full version of the day will be shown on the Kraft Hockeyville Top 10 show on March 8th at 9pm ET.

    The cameraman is filming my daughter skating on the ice trails in our neighbours backyard.   In another picture you can see us all on the ice at our arena holding a  Saint Raymond banner.  I am standing close to Alain Cote (ex-Nordique) whose wearing the blue Nordique jersey.  I have a purple tuque.  We also had Joe Juneau (NHL) who lives in Saint Raymond with us on the ice and JOUFFLU, our town mascot.

    IS ANYONE VOTING HERE???  PLEASE?  PRETTY PLEASE?? PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE???

    Actually, I'm really hoping that I can reach the hubpages community.  its incredible what this community can do when they put their mind to something and can accomplish amazing things!  I hope you see my case as worth the time to vote.  I imagine the hubpages community has a bigger population than Canada itself smile  So if all of you vote...I'm in business!  Thanks for taking the time everyone, it means so much to me.
