Vancouver Is Awesome!

A bunch of new faces are getting added to the already massive blogroll over at Vancouver is Awesome! If you don’t already know, this is the place to find out about cool stuff happening in Vancouver.

If you were already in the know about VIA then you probably heard about VIA Challenge #1: Ollie up onto and over the HUGE FREAKIN’ BALL at GM Place. There were rumors that Jeremy Wray had done it a long time ago but many people said it was near impossible. Well, someone finally did it!

Congrats Davers. I’m speechless I really thought this couldn’t be done. You really have to come to Vancouver to see these balls in person to realise how huge they are! (haha this last sentence is ridiculous)
