The Cup Is Coming To Town

Speaking of Stanley Cup, the greatest trophy in all sports is coming (close) to town. If you can't wait for the real parade to start along Georgia St. - if Terry Frei is right - you can at least celebrate with the Cup when Carolina Hurricanes forward, Andrew Ladd, brings it to Maple Ridge:

And while cup festivities in his hometown are still in the early planning stages, Ladd confirmed Tuesday that he and the cup will be at Maple Ridge's Arts Centre Theatre and Memorial Peace Park for three or four hours during the afternoon of Aug. 23.

"We haven't really figured out the details yet, but it will be something with the public, some of it outside the ACT and part in the ACT," Ladd said yesterday.

Gary Manson, manager of corporate communications with the District of Maple Ridge, said the segment inside the ACT will be restricted due to space, but will include members of Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey Association.

Following the cup celebration inside the ACT, Manson said the trophy will be taken to the park, where members of the public will have the opportunity to line up to see it and take pictures, within certain time constraints.
The Stanley Cup was in Kamloops earlier this week. Hope James Mirtle got some good pics.
