  • W.P.F.G. Vancouver/ Burnaby,B.C. 2009

    I'm curious about how many firefighters are thinking about attending the games in 2009? If you"ve never visited beautiful british columbia, this would be a great opportunity to. And remember theres something for everybody to compete in, even old farts like me. Personally, I'm training for the gold metal in the grueling sport of...fresh water fishing! Hope to see you here!

    Yours In Solidarity,
    A/Captain James B. Kirk (Yeah,It's my real name).

      I'll be heading "home" for a final posting .... whether is back to BEAUTIFUL BC or some (YUK) Eastern part of the country I dont know yet. With a bit of luck and some prayer, I'll be back in Vic by Mid August 09. If it all works out, I'll be there, but as Sher says, likely a spectator.

        I'll be there as well but as an World Class athlete. I'm planning to go into the Salt Water Fishing event. If time permits and they have a Masters division, I may go into sevens(Flying Kiwi will likely understand).

        If anybody has the opportunity, I highly recommend attending, the WPFG is a GREAT party and the Lower Mainland will put on a GREAT show(as will the Aussies this year)

          Thats cohonnas bro! Those tide changes can spill your beer! If my body permits after my day of trout fishing, I'm seriously considering a try at darts.My friends tell me I'm crazy as they dont have a masters division.

            If they were going to go for Sturgeon, I'd do the Fresh Water thing as well. I however am going to stick with the Salmon and leave the trout alone so you B.C. guys can win something. You guys will never be able to live down an Albertan showing you how to catch salmon.

              The only way I see it,for you to finish on the podium,is if you visit the vancouver aquarium, late the night before. We definately have to get together after the derby for a few tins. I can show you what the metals look like as well.

                Sounds good and after that I'll show you what the MEDALS look like. (Sorry couldn't resist, I'm really not one of the spelling nazi's)

                Sounds like we should sit down to a couple of cold ones prior to the competition to arrange wagers.

                Darts isn't all that dangerous, unless your the goalie.

                  Here's an older thread with some more responses about who's planning on coming for the Games. Sort of. Good for a laugh, anyway!

                    HA HA HA only if you decide to head out on the boat towards Seymour Narrows. Thats about the only time/place I really worry about tide changes in smaller boats. LOL Them dang whorl pools are something else to see! And the fishing around them parts is pertty good too.

                      I guess it's an assumption that there will be a Salt Water event. If there is, I'll be interested to see how the boundaries are set and enforced. I could be wrong but aren't you in American waters if you go past Pt. Roberts. If allowed we would have an International event.

                      I better get an American licence just in case I hook onto a monster that drags my boat over to the American side. Don't want to get arrested with the winner.

                        good idea,get a american fishing licence. I wasn't going to let you in on my secret fishing hole, but you seem like a great guy, so you may consider trolling along the Alaska coast. Also, how come you were all over me for spelling medal incorrect, yet the bro from Malahat likes fishing in "whorl" pools

                          Whorl pools, I thought that must be B.C. slang for the bars around there.

                          My boat won't quite make it to Alaska, I can't carry enough beer to go that far. I may be able to make it from Tsawwassen(where I keep my boat) to Point Roberts with one or two beer coolers. As long as it's not too hot a day.

                            you really are a funny guy. I"m putting you on my buddy list. how ironic you mentioned before 7-aside rugby. The last time I competed in the games was 1989 (vancouver) in rugby. we put together a squad from all over the map, and named our team the Gypsy 7's. We got thumped pretty good by the lads from Ireland, however earned a 5th place medal. How I'd love to lace em' up again, but playing with an O2 unit strapped to my back, may not be allowed.

                              Smart Guy!

                              Nope. Take a gander up around Campbell River area, and the Seymour Narrows. Every tide change the rip that runs through makes whirl pools that can make life for small water craft... ummm.. interesting.

                              Seymour Narrows, Discovery Passage, B.C., is known to be a dangerous area for small vessels to navigate on account of strong tidal streams (which may attain velocities of 15 knots), whirlpools and eddies.
