Thank you Superfly ziplines

I would like to publicly thank Joey Houssian, The Adventure Group and specifically Superfly Zipline Tours for their very generous recent promotion.

They offered a full six-zipline experience, anytime between July 2-31, to the first 500 locals to drop by their office on June 26th with no strings attached! The offer was well advertised through a large newspaper ad and social media, so it truly was open to any local.

Although some people lined up hours in advance I was unable to drop by the office until after work around 4 p.m. and was still fortunate enough to get a pass. When I got home I reminded my neighbours about the offer and they too were able to get some of last few passes.

Having read about their two new ziplines, the longest in Canada (1.3) km and over (190) metres above the ground, I was certainly interested to check them out but until one actually experiences them first hand one cannot begin to comprehend just how truly spectacular they really are! As exhilarating as the ziplines themselves are the view is equally as spectacular and the staff is great.

Superfly Ziplines now ranks up there with the Peak 2 Peak Alpine Experience as Whistler's must do attractions for visitors and residents alike!

On behalf of the 500 very lucky locals, thank you very much Joey for your very generous and farsighted promotion!

Ready for Zhangziazie

A heart-felt "thank you" to Harvey Lim of Art Junction Gallery who invited me to play at his gallery during Function Junction's ArtWalk Block Party.  In combination with my guitar / ukulele-playing buddy Mike Finnegan, all the warm smiles, thumbs up and "Good Luck in China" wishes, my transition to playing to an adult audience has been made relatively seamless.

Thank you as well to the "powers that be" in the RMOW staff who honoured my request to get my performance feet wet at Rainbow Park for the employee recognition barbeque. We had a few technical glitches at the beginning but soldiered on thanks to the understanding and appreciative crowd.    

Thanks to everyone who has shown such support and confidence in me that perhaps maybe, if I can just bottle all your positive energy and wishes, I won't have any problems being one of the best Whistler ambassadors Zhangziazie will ever see!
