Once we got in, it was very organized. First, they confirmed that I was actually who I said I was and that I was supposed to be there. Then, I followed the red line to get my photo taken (no smiling!), and then the yellow line to pick up my accreditation. Once that was all done, it was onto the white line to get my uniform! The uniform consists of a bright blue waterproof jacket, a fleece vest, 2 long sleeved shirts, a touque, and a pair of pants. I am a bit concerned about only having one pair of pants for a month! The uniform is pretty good, although very bright.After all that was done, it was time to go to Britannia to meet the other people that I will be working with and to get a brief orientation to the facility and the job (and lots of acronyms!). It is hard to believe that in less than 2 weeks the best hockey players in the world will be in front of me the ice. Check out my next entry for more info on what happens at Britannia, and other adventures.
GO CANADA GO!
