Canucks and Beyond

If You’re in Vancouver, Say ‘Hi!’

A busy weekend ahead, as Sunday is the time for the Vancouver Canucks’ annual Open Practice.  Last year, the team was nice enough to allow The Crazy Canucks podcasters to record throughout the building—and it was a great experience, but this year might even be even more fun

We (“we” being myself, J.J., Rebecca, John and Dave)  were kindly asked to participate in the events surrounding the team’s search for The Ultimate Canucks Fan

And that’s just for starters…

From John:

Sunday has our podcast crew front and center at GM Place for the Canucks Open Practice. We’ll be on the concourse raising a ruckus and having lots of fun with fellow Canucks fans at the event, media passes and our own location on the concourse included. All brought to you by those super cool folks at the Ultimate Canucks Search.

Before that, Saturday also represents a very strange new experience (for me, anyway), as the group of us will also be doing a seminar at the social media conference, Northern Voice 2008 (at UBC) on the topic of sports blogging and podcasting. 

As Rebecca describes us and our contributions…

These are 4 individuals who all have different levels of technical knowledge, different blogs or podcasts but we all share one thing - our love for hockey and the Canucks. During our session we’ll simply be exploring the basics (how to start a sports blog), some of the philosophies (how do you keep it going, get an audience, deal with heckler Oilers fans or feel about being “outsiders” of the organizations), and lastly some of the more technical aspects (how do we all come together and record a podcast from all corners of the country) followed by Q&A.

So if you’re going to be at the 4th annual Northern Voice conference, I’ll look forward to seeing you there.  smile

(Lordy, it’s only Thursday and I’m already tired…)

Oh, and one more thing: Beesak is Back. Go Canucks!

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.
