There are many reasons why you should eagerly anticipate the Canucks Hockey Blog tweetup at the Hog Shack in beautiful Steveston in Richmond taking place this Saturday afternoon: a good game (hopefully) between the Canucks and the Sharks, good food, contests, and of course, great company. As I look ahead to Saturday, there are a few tweetup-specific Things That Make Me Go Hmmm:
1. Do you remember your first time? If this is your first-ever tweetup, we welcome you with open arms! It promises to be a lot of fun and as they say, you always remember your first time. My first tweetup was back on May 22, 2011 at Guildford’s Boston Pizza when the Canucks beat the same Sharks 4-2 to take a 3-1 series lead in the Western Conference Finals. At this official Vancouver Canucks tweetup, I met JJ and Chris of CHB for the very first time, and they immediately put me to work making me film this. We had a great time chatting and filming and we even roped the Game Day Guys (Andrew, Chris and Reigan) in for a few thoughts. Thankfully, the first impressions were decent enough both ways as they are still letting me contribute to the site. Other highlights of the day included meeting Nicole Van Zanten (Social Media Coordinator of the Canucks) and devouring my Hawaiian pizza.
