Thank you the overwhelming support in voting my hometown as Hockeyville.
And overwhelming is definitely the word.
I received nearly 2200 emails from voters (thank God for email filters), with more still coming in. From the few I've looked through everyone has voted dozens and even 100s of times. Quite few even claim 1000s votes, which I could never comprehend.
Response was far greater than expected. Needless to say I can never get through 2200 emails and decipher a winner based strictly on the honor system. So here's what I'm going to do:
On Tuesday night there are 8 games on the NHL schedule. I am going to take the total goals scored that night and multiply that by 16, the jersey number of every Terrace resident's favorite Canuck Trevor Linden. I will then match up that number with the matching email based on sequential arrival of messages.
That emailer will win the Kraft Hockey Card prize pack consisting of four Edmonton Oilers cards including a Wayne Gretzky card.
The random winners of the other three cards are as follows:
Russ Courtnall card - Paul Roders
Sergio Momesso card - Beverly Rooke
Jim Peplinski card - James Cavalheiro
I will be in touch with the winners shortly....
UPDATE: The winner of the four Oilers cards is Don Riley of Grande Prairie, Alberta. The neat thing is Don lived in Kitimat, just down the road from Terrace, for a couple of years in the 1980s.
