Camera Equipment I’m taking to Maui

Tomorrow morning I'm leaving for Maui for five days and it took me a while to fully decide what I wanted to pack for my camera equipment. I'm taking as little camera equipment as possible since this really is a vacation to mostly relax. I'm taking both my camera bodies. My D500 and D750.

Red Deer Friends on Ice

This weekend I’m going to be in Red Deer with the Crossfire for the Red Deer Friends on Ice tournament. There are a total of 62 teams participating from the U6 through to Open D.

I'm quite excited for it because I love being…

For playing we finished off the first half of the season with four games and a fun ice in 7 days. We lost three of the four games and the game we won was a really great game and we were able to keep the lead…
