  1. Dwayne we are friends, but I couldn't disagree with you more on these posts. The Voyageurs has evolved significantly since you were running the organization. I love having the forum for people to communicate, but it no longer holds the importance it once did. There are many places we meet and connect on social media, as well as in person. If the message board is all the Voyageurs is to you, then you are missing out on a lot. I am a proud Voyageur, and I chat with fellow Voyageurs almost daily. Sometimes in the forum, but usually in other places. That's a choice I make, not because I have issues with how the forum is run, but because if feels more convenient to connect on other social platforms. Message boards aren’t dead, but they are not what they used to be, when there are many other ways to connect. I’ve been part of so many Voyageurs activities in the last couple of years, from viewing parties to live games (in several cities). I’m a bit dismayed that you could say the Voyageurs are dead. It is very much alive. For those that think Jamie is running the show alone, this is misguided. It’s true that Jamie has put in an unbelievable amount of personal time and money into this, but he is not acting alone. There are Voyageurs all across the country helping Jamie promote the Voyageurs regionally, offering advice, and opinions. Lending a hand on game day, and leading up to game day. And there are several very active Voyageurs who have worked closely with Jamie with the incorporation. And saying Jamie is the only Voyageur because he is the only name on the not-for profit, makes no sense. There are only 4 of us on the RRR not for profit, but we aren’t the only members. I agree that Doug shouldn’t have been banned. But the tizzy this has devolved into is a bit incomprehensible. If you want to call for more transparency fine. That is a fair comment. But to suggest the Voyageurs are nothing, is quite frankly offensive to all of the active members of the Voyageurs, putting in a lot of hard work, time and passion.
  2. I should have mentioned that as well. Here are the details on that: Scarf Design Contest To help pass the time while we wait for Valour to return to the pitch, we decided to run a contest for our next scarf design. We are looking for entries from Red River Rising members who support Valour FC and we would love to see what you can come up with! All submitted designs will be voted on by fellow supporters to determine the winner. We will then hold a pre-order drive to help members guarantee a new scarf as this will be a limited-edition scarf. The winning designer will receive a scarf on the house as well as your choice of a $20.00 gift card to either the Valour store, Kings Head, or Nicolino’s. Please see rules: Open to members of Red River Rising who support Valour FC Can design a traditional Football scarf, or Summer scarf (lighter for hot days) Entries must incorporate our Red River Rising Logo Entries are due to contest@redriverrising.ca by 23h59 on May 20, 2020 Voting will begin on May 25, 2020 and close ten days after on June 4, 2020 Winner will be announced shortly after Pre-ordering open on June 15, 2020 and close July 3, 2020
  3. We had an epic TIFO planned for our opener against Ottawa. We can shelve it though, and roll it out whenever Ottawa finally makes an appearance here.
  4. I thought I'd get us started again. We are having a 'Fauxpening Day' virtual tailgate (via Zoom) on Saturday, during the time that we would have gathered pre-game for Valour's season opener. If you want to join, I'll email the link and login info if you RSVP here (Zoom limits the number of people that can login, so that's why we need an RSVP rather than just posting the login info) Rob Gale and Jose Galan will be joining us. We are sending some baby gifts for Jose, and he'll open them during the call. We are also hosting a Quarantine TIFO contest, and the Kings Head is donating a $25 gift card and a scarf as the prize. Rob Gale, Jose Galan & Chris Graves (from the Kings Head) will be judging. You can find more details about the contest here: https://www.redriverrising.ca/2020/04/28/kings-head-quarntine-tifo-contest/ We'll also sing a few songs, as we would have on the march to the match. We are encouraging people to order take out from the places they would have gathered at pre-game (particularly the Kings Head, Nicolinos & Stone Angel). Since the tailgate starts early on saturday, you may need to plan ahead and order tomorrow (Friday). The Kings Head has put together an RRR Tailgate package (6 cans of beer, a frozen pizza and skittles for $35) - https://www.kingshead.ca/new-products-1/valour-fc-red-river-rising-tailgate-package
  5. I feel like I might be losing my mind, but I can't find the Valour 2020 thread anymore. Is it gone, or am I just blind?
  6. Yep. All teams are getting new home kits as well this year.
  7. I'm not sure if 8 votes is enough of a sample size to be representative of the Voyageurs, but at 35 points, Ashley Lawrence is the clear winner. Sinclair and Labbé tied for second/third with 9 points each.
  8. The only one I'm really solid on is Lawrence at #1. 1. Ashley Lawrence 2. Christine Sinclair 3. Jessie Fleming
  9. We can't very well only have a Men's player of the year, so I thought I'd start the Women's poll The deadline for submissions is 12:01 AM (Pacific) January 1st, New Years Day 2020. Submissions for PoY must have a first place, second place, and third place selection. A point system is used to calculate a players points total at the completion of polling. A player will receive 5 points for a 1st place selection, 3 points for a 2nd place selection, and 1 point for a 3rd place selection. The player with the highest final aggregate total will be declared the Voyageurs International Player of the Year. Only one submission per IP address. Additional submissions from the same IP address allowed entirely at the Administrators discretion. For a player to be eligible for the Voyageurs International Player of the Year the player must have been selected for international duty at the senior level in 2019 and be eligible to play for Canada, in accordance with FIFA laws & statutes
  10. I believe the Kings Head viewing will be in the lower area. They had a big screen down there last month, so it is probably still there. For Nicolinos, we will be in private room for sure, so start there. Nick is also going to have the game on in the lounge as well, though it will likely be busy over dinner.
  11. There is a second viewing party in Winnipeg, at The Kings Head - 120 King Street West
  12. Winnipeg Viewing will be at Nicolinos again (2077 Pembina Highway). We will likely be in the private room. https://www.nicolinosrestaurant.com/
