International Hockey Event Goes Ahead In Christchurch

Submitted by on March 22, 2011 – 8:43 pm 6 Comments

After the devastating earthquake which shook Christchurch businesses to a holt on 22nd February, the future of events in the city looks bleak as many venues have been left in tatters and most events planned for Canterbury have pulled out. But not for the promoters of International Ice Hockey USA vs Canada who vow that the event will go on.

International Ice Hockey’s game two is set for Christchurch’s CBS Arena on 30th July and with the venue coming out un-scathed the event promoters see no reason for Christchurch residents to miss out on the action sport event of the year.

Event promoter Craig Douglas says “It’s not about making money, it’s about giving the people of Christchurch our support and giving the city and residents back some energy and excitement” “It’s about giving them something to look forward to and something that will bring in an estimated two million dollars in economic impact to the city.

Bringing the International series to Christchurch is not without its problems and that there North American tour directors are cautious about letting their 100 million dollar product come to a broken city. “I do not care if I have to fly them in one hour before the game and out again after, If Prince William felt safe then so should they” Douglas said.

Kerry Goulet, the tours commentator said that Ice Hockey is one of the hardest and fastest sports on earth and that he believed that Cantabrians are a tough bunch and will enjoy the action.

International Ice Hockey promoters are going the extra mile to make this a “real” American Ice Hockey experience with extreme sound and lighting, big screen TVs, action replays and live American announcers. With the ice floor fresh off the boat from the Netherlands as the first ever fully portable NHL spec ice floor in Australasia, it will be a spectacular display of Ice Hockey entertainment.

Christchurch’s events scene is still alive with International Ice Hockey USA vs Canada.  Be there as USA and Canada face-off at Game two, CBS Arena Christchurch 30th July.

  • When using such a solution, you will be asked to talk about the events that affected
    you in the year, marriage, new baby, move to a new house, started
    college, changed employment status, etc. You need to seek Tax Filing Help if
    you would like stay away from Tax Levy complications like a
    Wage Levy or Bank Levy. Every year, thousands of vacancies open up in the
    public sector.

  • The baby boomer generation needs to understand and master the
    total significance of IRD, because they have accumulated significant wealth creating Taxable Estates.
    There exist also some job websites that specialize only
    in accounting vacancies that can be of great chance in the specific situation. For costs of home-based DUI, robbery and assault immigration-linked or another tricky New York Tax Attorney, New York Bankruptcy Attorney, New York
    Traffic Ticket Lawyer firm trouble, he promises to zealously promoter for your own interest.

  • Call a local community college and make an appointment
    with an advisor, find out if you qualify for financial aid,
    talk to them about career options. These companies have professional staff which carried your goods from
    one place to another. There are tanks and a lot of men to the left, and you need
    to let the friendly tanks take care of them.

  • Artificial baits include spoons, jigs, ribbon baits, rattler
    baits & streamer baits. For instance at a time when anglers
    where sticking rigidly to the mantra of 3 to 5 milliliters of flavour, plus 1 to
    2 milliliters of intense sweetener to a pound of base mix
    or more, as measured by 4 large eggs or 6 medium eggs as a basis
    of measurement, I tried other approaches and reaped big rewards against
    much more experienced anglers. A camera and photo album are another way for a family to record their boating trips.

  • Islamorada tarpon fishing involves the fishing of an prehistoric rare fish tarpon through the scientific name Magalops Atlanticus which is a prehistoric fish considered to be one in every of the diverse & interesting creatures across the country which can be present in both side of Atlantic also referred to as as the tarpum tarpon or else the silver king due to it’s majestic appearance & colour which lays 15 million eggs.
    Many times I have tried to avoid the most popular swims for this reason because this is where the fish will often feed most carefully and be most hard to catch.
    If you are a foreigner unlikely to return if allowed to
    leave, you will not be able to post a bond.
