The UBC Thunderbirds are playing four games at GM Place this season. The first game is this Friday, December 1, 2006. Canucks Alumni to play in a double-header on Sunday…
The UBC Thunderbirds hockey team finds themselves without a home this winter as they rebuild the UBC arena for the 2010 Olympics. While I’m sure it’s an inconvenience for the team, it gives hockey fans a chance to experience GM Place hockey for a fraction of the cost of Canucks tickets.
Organize a group of 10 or more people and tickets are only $5 each. Family-Packs are $28. Special student pricing too.

I just received the Portobello West newsletter and they’ve announced a change of venue for the November 26 & December 16 events. The new venue is a newly renovated heritage building off of Terminal Avenue, so Portobello West will be indoors for the next two events. (Map)
