I used to live in Welland, Ontario and I now live a couple of miles from the river Welland in England !My parents emigrated and gave it uo after 5 years moving back to Sheffield, for which I will be eternally grateful?At school we played Baseball, ice Hockey and Lacrosse - which is a girls game, unless of course, you are playing with a severed enemies head! I never saw a football until I was 10!

I did! It was nice to have that on again.Watched the Hurricans and Lightning. Was a good game, but the Canes have issues in net, it could be a long season.

And when you get to Edmonton keep going west till you reach us in Lotus Land otherwise known as Vancouver where it only snows on the mountains for the skiers and you can wear Tshirts all year round.

Mick, you've got no sense of adventure mate. There's nowt wrong with trundging through snow and ice for 6 months of the years in -30 temperatures. You can wear t-shirts year-round here too, it's just you need 16 layers of the thingslol

You'll have to come for the skiing after Xmas. Magic.

Met a number of Brits at LL last April who said they loved the skiing and the prices were way cheaper than Europe

Wicked. I lived on Wharfedale, just up the road from the Bridge Inn - my parents still do. Wharncliffe Arms was my local though.

I guess High Green must be a good place to leave. just joking only went in the wharncliffe a few times as the Bridge was just so close and the beer was good.
