Hey Jets Fans,
Well that finishes off a great week in Winnipeg! What a great last day to finish the week with a ton of exciting and fun stuff.
It was nice to start the day with a little later wake up and from there we were off to the rink. We were divided up into four teams and played the famous Perry Pearn 3 on 3! It was competitive and fun but unfortunately for our team we lost both games so we finished last in the mini tournament. It was all fun though and we all bugged each other about our respective finishes quite a bit. Once again it was an amazing turnout for fans and it was cool to hear the buzz after a nice goal or save.
Afterwards we headed over to the 17 Wing base where we toured the base and learned about all kinds of stuff. I actually got to try on the Search and Rescue parachute equipment which was extremely heavy!
To finish off the day we had a great time at Mark Chipman's house where we had a barbecue and hung out in the backyard. Pretty cool to have an owner that is so personable and approachable!
That basically winds up a great week here in Winnipeg where a lot was learned and many memories were made. Thanks so much to all the fans that made my first trip to Winnipeg in the Jets organization amazing.
Jets fans, enjoy your summers and see you in the fall!
