I have been to Edmonton countless times in my life but this trip was far more memorable then that. My coworker Evan and I had got the opportunity to take 9 guys from the YFCHL (our inner city floor hockey league) to Edmonton for 5 days. It was a crazy idea but was totally worth it. We were able to go to explore West Edmonton Mall, the Alberta Legislature building and a bunch of other cool spots in Edmonton. For several of theses guys it was there first experience in Edmonton. There were a whole bunch of "firsts" for these guys. Some of the firsts that these guys got to experience were first time on a roller coast, first time on a big waterslide, first time in a "fancier" sit down restaurant, and for some it was their first time in Edmonton. It is always a fantastic feeling to be able to give these guys the opportunity to experience new things. I am excited how these relationships are cultivated in the upcoming year as be reminisce on the shared experiences on this trip.
