Calgary is nice, I have assisted on an oil deal near by.

Hey my stomping ground! I was born there.....

As for cheap airlines.... Philippine Airlines defines cheap. Ask me in private what the owner L.T used to do to keep the costs down. I don't want to say publicly so I won't get sued LOL

the peak is nice to visit on a sunny day, and at night you may want to check out the "ozone sky bay" in the ICC overlooking hong kong at the 118th floor

Movie? I'm Jason, not John....

I'm close enough to DC to really count as the district as well. ;) Good luck in your quest to obtain a Centurion.

I used them to get me hockey tickets too but sometimes I wonder if they are any better than Ticketmasters as I am sure they use them to procure the tickets. I think the benefit is, we don't have to wait on line or on the tele to get them.

I thought they may have an inside man to help get these but I wonder if they really do.


My concierge service is with capitol1 venture card gold version 1.25 miles per dollar.

so which teams did you see? were you on vacation or did you just go for the game? if it wasn't a Vancouver home game?

me and my parents went to Florida to visit my mom's friend and we took in 2 hockey games and 1 exhibition baseball game. we saw Buffalo play Tampa and Edmonton play Tampa.
