Five Hole For Food lands in Vancouver Saturday; you should go

Richard Loat, FHFF founder and full-blown stud, preens for onlookers after scoring a goal.

I’ll let Trevor Linden handle the introduction here:


Pretty much sums it up. This year’s tour has raised over 80,000 pounds of food, with their end goal being a whopping 100k. Mr. Linden is correct: Five Hole For Food is awesome.

The charity’s cross-country tour makes its 13th and final stop Saturday, July 21 in Vancouver, with the 800 block of Granville shut down for games of road hockey from 12-6pm. That’s today. Anyone can play in these road hockey games. Since you are an anyone, you should go. Among the other anyones going: the mayor, Scott Rintoul, Giulio Caravatta.

Also I’ll be there, if you care about that. Daniel and I were both hoping to be at the event all day, but life has befallen us. Daniel won’t be able to make it, and I’ll be there by 3pm because this summer job I picked up is unbending and cruel.

But our official women’s road hockey team The Wellwoods will be there at high noon! Consider them our ambassadors.


Please treat them like the celebrities they are by asking for pictures and autographs.

If I can rustle up a team once I get there, we may have to challenge them to a grudge match. I imagine a ragtag group of dudes can take on an elite womens’ road hockey team, especially since they never practice. Right?

Anyway. You should go. Bring money and food and donate it. Support one of Vancouver’s coolest charities. Find Richard Loat and shake his hand. Congratulate him on recently getting engaged. Play road hockey. Have fun.

    Aww, shucks. Darn busy summer schedules.

    I already missed the last time the Wellwoods were playing in Vancouver.
