Round one of the draft is tonight beginning at 7pm eastern time. Rounds two through seven begin in the morning.
It seems everyone was out last night carousing. The Ducks staff even brought the cup out last night. I couldn't help myself. I'll post some pics next time.

Nice pics! WOW! Did the Motorola Q take them, or did you buy a digital cam now?

It's a great looking city. I saw a bunch of pics online too.

And I also talked to the Nelson and Postma clan in Alberta. They are getting pretty excited for Posty. I think him and Eric Doyle will go for sure.

Have a good one down there Jon. I'll see you at the banquet on Tuesday!

Where's the pics of you and Gare Joyce?

Ern, I borrowed a camera for the trip. I did take some pics with my phone but the qaulity isn't that good.

Hopefully a few of our boys get drafted. We'll wait and see.

Any chance you can talk Kevin Lowe into sending Riley Nash to Swifty?
