Las Vegas Hockey Festival

October 2004


Jimmy and Lun joined the Las Vegas Hockey Festival this year. It was a 4 day tournament from Thursday October 7th, till Sunday October 10th.  They played for the San Jose Jets with 11 other players. Their first game was at 6:20pm at the Fiesta Hotel Thursday evening, followed by 2 more games at the Ice Center on Flamingo Blvd. on Friday and Saturday evening. After losing all 3 games, they weren't able to move onto the playoffs, but they went in knowing that for most of the other teammates, the tournament was just a good excuse to go to Vegas with a bunch of buddies. It looked like they were having a lot of fun and were all giving it their best effort on the ice. In addition to hockey, we happily spent the weekend with the Parentals and had an amazing time with them and Lun and Melani.

Ben doesn't want to see us go, so he insists on sitting in our bags so we can't pack.
