Draw #9: Sad Turnout
As the piper leads the teams onto the ice, there must be no more 200-300 people here, and that's including four noticeable groups of students. But then, it is 8:30am, and Canada isn't playing.
As Alan and I have suggested before, the organizers should be selling tickets to student groups for $1 or maybe even less, just to pack the upper deck. I guess they missed those classes on price discrimination in bizskool.
Update: By the time the third end has rolled around, an exhaustive head count reveals that there are roughly 300 people here in addition to about 150 students. Some of the groups of students brought posters and signs, supporting teams from different countries.... fun and a nice gesture of hospitality.
