Tuesday April 16

Toronto and Simcoe to make the trip complete.

With only 3 more days to go, the trip seems to be so short… The group enjoyed so much already in such a short time that most of the players and parents will start to enjoy the tour even more over the next days, weeks and months when they look back at everything they did this week.

Today Toronto was on the schedule, Early in the morning the group drove to the CN-Tower to have a perfect view over the city of Toronto. With great weather this was an unforgettable moment for the entire group. Following lots and lots of pictures we then walked to the Scotia Bank Centre, the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs and felt the special atmosphere as the team is doing good in the Play-Offs.

Then one of the highlights of the trip the Hockey Hall Of Fame, this remarkable Ice Hockey museum was very much liked by all players, and a picture with the Stanley cup was needed to frame the moment for years to come.

Then the group left the busy City and drove to Simcoe a small town away from the business of the busy Canada city’s. A great little town that very much welcomed the German team. Following news paper adds, and spots on the local radio a full rink of people showed up for a great game of hockey.

RAPTORS even managed to take a 1-3 lead in the first period, but in the last seconds of the game the home team managed to score the last and deciding goal to win the game.

After the game, the team was invited for a dinner with the Home team, and this was a great closure of another busy tour day. Lots of facebook info was shared with probably several new friendships to be come.

At 23.00 we all arrived at the hotel for a well-deserved night of sleep.
