Meet Doug Gilmour and Wendel Clark live at the Casino from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 12, 2013. Space is limited to the first 200 people who register.
This ad has been running in the local paper for about a month. I wasn’t sure if I could make it so I just filed it away in my mind. Around 10:45 this morning, I discovered i would be available during this time frame. I looked for a few things to get signed and left around 12:30 for the 5 minute drive to the OLG (Ontario Lottery and Gaming) Casino Brantford. I went inside to see what the setup was going to be. After I entered, the hostess asks me if I’m a hockey fan. I answered in the affirmative and she said I could register at the desk for a meet and greet with Doug Gilmour and Wendel Clark.
I received this pass for Group B at 1:15. In group A, there were probably 25 – 30 people ahead of me. I got in line and these were the photos they were signing and giving out. Notice the OLG Casino Brantford logo.
Since there weren’t many people there and the line was moving quickly, they were both signing additional items. I brought two wire photos to get signed.
Since this picture was from Doug’s Calgary days, he added his number “39”. The Leafs photo they were giving out, he added his number “93”
After Wendel signed this, he read the byline and remarked that he hadn’t seen this before.
I said hello to both, and thanked them as I left. Pretty good experience and I was home by 1:25. I probably could have stayed and got some cards signed as the line was pretty short. But why spoil a good thing.
