Salut, mes amis!
I don't mean to barge into your house ... consider this a knock on the door
As most of you would know, I live in the lower St. Laurent. I have a friend here (Alouettes fan) who has never been in an airplane, never been west of Dorval, never been out of the province. He has heard (and heard accurately, if I may so humbly say ) that the place to be for atmosphere in the CFL is Taylor Field. So he wanted to kill a few birds with one stone and go to Regina for Montréal game in Regina, which turns out to be the season opener. He inquired about if I would be able to go with him and be his "guide". Being the ambassador that I try to be (believe it or not!) for my native province, I worked it out with my wife (more expensive than the plane tickets :oops: ), as did he, and it is a go. We started planning this in the winter and it is now arranged ... to the prairies we go for Canada Day weekend 8) .
Now, my buddy is francophone through and through. I will be his interpreter for sure, but it would be fun to make him feel a bit more at ease if there is a gang (french-speaking ... or not) of Alouettes fans to party with before or after the game or both.
Anyone going or, even if not going, any idea where the Alouette contingent, as small as it might be, hangs out? If you prefer to PM me, feel free to do so. I'll be asking around amongst my Riders contacts as well but wanted to get an inside scoop, if any
In the meantime, here's to what is going to be a superb season :thup: :thup: :rockin: :thup: :thup: ... and go Riders!!!
