Chuck a Puck

Just in case you didn't know it, we are huge ice hockey fans around here and every chance we get we go to watch Melbourne Ice play.  Today was one of those days, game day.  Better still, it was the Melbourne Derby - Melbourne Ice were playing the Mustangs.

We knew that it was going to be a huge game and sell out so we bought our tickets early and went in to the game hours before the game started just to make sure we had good seats.  I was glad we went early, not just because we did get good seats but because I was asked to be in Chuck-a-puck at the end of the first period!

I was pretty excited to be in Chuck-a-puck.  I was contestant number 3 and I was pretty nervous.  We were all interviewed and it was shown on the big screen.

Finally it was time to Chuck a puck.  The first 2 contestants aimed for the target - a big bag of chocolates on the ice but their puck wasn't very close.  Then it was my turn.  I chucked my puck, it wasn't a great throw but it was much closer than the first two.  Contestant number 4 threw her puck and it was a pretty good throw, it looked to be about the same distance from the chocolate but on the other side of it.  The last 4 throws weren't really very good so it was between me and number 4.  I was pretty sure that my puck was closest, but her throw was straighter so the prize was given to her.  I was a little disappointed not to win, but I still had a great time.

Better still, it was great to spend the afternoon with my family, and extended family - Sarah and Fred AND the Melbourne Ice won the game 4-1.

All in all, a great day out,

Love Princess George
