July 8 – Football Game – Saskatchewan Roughriders vs Hamilton Tiger Cats

The city of Regina has recently build a new facility, Mosaic Stadium, to host the Roughriders and this was only the second game that they have played in the new stadium. There is no parking at the stadium and the city has devised an excellent scheme for transportation. Drive to the local shopping and park your car for free. Hop on the waiting city bus, again free, for a ride directly to the stadium. At the end of the game, buses are again waiting to take you back to the shopping mall and your car. No traffic congestion and all free transportation.

Bob the builder is ready for the game.

Enthusiasm for the Roughriders runs vey high in Regina. Almost everyone was wearing green to support the home team. Of course, Valerie and I were wearing our Canada 150 shirts and boy did we ever stand out from the crowd. Right nest to the stadium is Centennial Park and we went there for burgers and beer. Live country music was playing, there was a marching band and lots of folks were having a good time.

Pretty big flag
Warm-up complete – Let’s do it.

Game On!
