Pucks-N-Purls 2013

We had great seats right next to the tunnel.  Got to see the players enter and exit up close as well as the live version of many of the interviews and features for the JumboTron.  The real Hanson Brothers from the fine film Slapshot (1977) were the celebrity feature.  We were also right at the corner, a favored spot for slamming into the wall.  So lots of extra excitement!

There was knitting:

And excellent doorprizes, we all (except Rachel) left with more yarn than we came in with. At least one project was completed during the game.  Sadly, the Checkers were less successful.

We Celebrated the Alpacas!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Alpaca show was a fun trip.  It turns out that alpacas come in many different forms, each with a fascinating face.  The exhibitors had come from a wide range of places, from Florida, Iowa and Pennsylvania as well as Waxhaw and Asheville.  There were hundreds of  animals.  Enjoy some photos:
