2012 RSN watch party recap

In 2011, Red Sox Nation - Alberta, through the efforts of our governor hosted 6 RSN watch parties.   These were very successful, as our Red Sox went 6-0 in those games.   This year, we only had two parties, losing the first game to the Yankees, after blowing a 9 run lead, and sitting though 2 lengthy rain delays while losing to the Blue Jays.   But in spite of that, I will say that this year's parties were more successful.  Why?
Well, first of all, through Marc's marketing efforts, awareness of these events greatly increased and we had some good turnouts.  But more importantly we raised money for some good local as well as Red Sox related causes.  The April party raised funds for the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation, and the September one helped out the Jimmy Fund.  Below are some pictures from the latest watch party:

Stay tuned, as more events are planned for next year, and we hope to see all the familiar faces back, as well as some new ones.   And thanks again to Marc for organizing these and helping to raise awareness of some good causes, as well as to the Melrose for having a perfect venue to host these events.  See you all next year!
