SAN DIEGO!

SAN DIEGO!

Almost had this up yesterday but had technical difficulties in the last minute and we had to run to the bus so no time to reload!  We are having a great trip.  Started very early on boxing day, flight left Grande Prairie at 5:30 and we arrived in San Diego about noon.  Had some issue with getting into hotel but our travel dude fixed us up.  Played our first game, boys lost but played very well against the #1 seeded team in the tournament.  On saturday  we toured Old Town, great place, original old buildings and lots of staff in period dress.  We played another game and won.  Sunday was off to the zoo.  Huge place, couple of new babies, so kids saw lots of critters.  Some of us went to seaport village for supper, ended up at this BBQ joint with flying pigs painted on the building, turns out it is where the bar scene out of top gun was shot.  Kind of cool.  We are off to USS Midway today and have our third game today.  We have made some great contacts for ball, people are very friendly and quite fasinated with the crazy canucks.  They are floored when we tell them we have about 40 kids in high school, these schools we are playing have 3000 in grades 10 - 12.  Check out the photo gallery tonight, will upload pictures of our adventures
