September 15th was the Yelp Elite Event for September in the City Of Champions! Edmonton,
a town obsessed with athletics: From the Oilers to the Oil Kings, Edmonton
Rush, the beloved Eskimos and now the FC Edmonton! For 3 brilliant hours
lucky Elites and their guests attended a truly sensational event, basked in the
glorious September sunshine in a VIP tent right on the sideline of the FC
Edmonton soccer match. They ate, they drank, they mixed and mingled with the
Club Coach, Owner and President as well as a few players and most of all they
cheered on the Eddies as they battled the Fort Lauderdale Strikers!
SWAG was provided by the FC Edmonton from blue soccer balls to winter scarves
with the club colours, as well as a few team pennants. Head Coach Colin Miller
delivered a very special pre-game, game strategy meeting on what to expect from
the #2 ranked Fort Lauderdale Strikers as well as what to watch for on the
field from our boys in black and blue. Then the FC’s owner Tom Fath said a few
words showing his love for the game, as did team President, Rod Proudfoot.
Custom game day
catering was wonderfully provided by the Sawmill Catering Group. The
magnificent buffet spread included salmon, fried chicken, meatballs and 8
different salads and sides. From mid-week meetings, fundraising galas, BBQ’s and Christmas
Party, or special events and weddings, the Sawmill Catering has been serving Edmonton for over 25
Molson Canadian and Coors both touting new beers and Strongbow
on hand… Talk about a Match made in
heaven! Coors Banquet made its
debut in Canada this summer and quickly sold out across the nation. It is the
recreation of the original Coors beer that was first introduced by Adolph Coors in 1874. Nicknamed
the ‘Banquet Beer’ because legend has it that in the late 1800s thirsty miners
threw celebratory banquets and you can what the beer on hand was! Then there is
the new Molson Canadian 67 Sublime; a premium light beer with a hint of
refreshing Lemon-Lime flavour and only 67 calories! And for something a bit
different, there was Strongbow Hard Cider. Named after Richard
"Strongbow" de Clare, the Earl of Pembroke, he was legendary for his
skill with the bow and arrow. With a namesake like that, it’s no wonder day
started strong and ended in a win!
A huge thanks goes out to everyone involved who helped to make this day so very special. The FC gained a whole lot of new fans that day… And our ace photograher, Demetri Giannitsios of DemetriGianni Photography caught each one of us texting, tweeting, instagram and yelping just how much we loved it!
Until Next Time…See You On Yelp.
Cheers, Jennie M. Your Yelp YEG CM!
