Media: On TV
The town I live in is one of the finalists in this competition CBC/Kraft are running to find the one community in the country who has the greatest passion for hockey and the deepest community spirit. I must admit that when I first thought about this contests and Hanover’s entry I thought we stood little chance of getting as far as we have. Kudos go to the organizors of our entry for pulling the community together and entering such a successful bid for the title.
What is hockeyville? Well the winner gets a bunch of cash prizes towards the improvement of the community arena but the thing that intrigues me the most is that there will be a NHL Exhibition game held in the winning towns arena. That’s pretty cool.
Anyway, tonight showcased the final 25 communities that are in the running which will be narrowed down to 10 communities by Friday (by judges and people’s votes). I’ve gotta admit that the only thing that really keeps me watching the episode itself is wanting to see representation from Hanover but honestly the rest of the show itself isn’t a real attention getter. It would be if they would have less talk and more profiles of the individual communities…but I understand theres’ only so much they can show in an hour when there are 25 communities involved! More than likely the next episode on Friday will have more such profiling.
Anyway, cheers to Hanover…the place to be!
