My good blogger friend Joe Pelletier http://www.greatesthockeylegends.com/ is not only a great hockey man. He’s also a proud resident of Terrace, BC., and Terrace has a chance to be Hockeyville this year, which is wonderful stuff for sure. So Joe passed this along to me and it’s my pleasure to pass it on to you. Because I’m asking you, for my friend Joe, to vote for Terrace, a good, old-fashioned Canadian hockey town. Here’s Joe’s letter, with all the details on how to vote.
Hey Dennis! As you may know, Terrace BC, my hometown, is a finalist for Hockeyville. We are almost ready to begin the voting process, and I am enlisting for the support of BC hockey fans everywhere. I’ve already got Canucks Fan Zone on side, I’m hoping I can count on you to help out the Terrace Is Hockeyville campaign as well.
