They went to Mel­bourne, Ho­bart, Ade­laide, Alice Springs, Cairns, Port Dou­glas, Townsville, Mag­netic Is­land, Bris­bane, Toowoomba, Hunter Val­ley and Syd­ney.

Quinn Sproule has ar­rived home from Poland where he was play­ing hockey dur­ing this past sea­son. He left in mid Au­gust and the Sanook team just fin­ished their play­offs. There were 12 teams in the league and his team fin­ished fourth over­all. Most of the team travel was by bus, so he was able to see a lot of the Pol­ish coun­try­side. Quinn shared a house lo­cated a few miles out of town with var­i­ous team­mates over the sea­son – as they were traded etc. - some did not speak English, and were from other coun­tries also, like Fin­land, Hun­gary. Poland was en­joy­ing a mild win­ter sim­i­lar to us. The team’s sched­ule did not al­low him to come home for Christ­mas so he and an­other Cana­dian room­mate trav­elled to Bu­dapest for a few days and re­ported that it was amaz­ing, es­pe­cially with the hol­i­day cel­e­bra­tions. Af­ter spend­ing a few days at home he will be re­turn­ing to a job with the City of Leth­bridge for the sum­mer.

With 11 cos­tume changes and 17 songs in­clud­ing 3 with chore­og­ra­phy I don’t know how I’m go­ing to not want to do that again.... Thank you to all my fam­ily and friends for show­ing up and sup­port­ing this event! I felt the love!
