We've so patience for this, Alen. Bourkie did not know WP is a "new member" in the board. Even though WP is actually a RFF member for eight years that Bourkie failed to make a significance with active members as "newbies" by mistake.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

I want to apologise to everyone (and especially WP) that I actually meant WELCOME BACK, not Welcome.

No need to apologize - I wasn't offended. It did highlight to me that perhaps I haven't been spending enough time here...

Has it really been 8 years?

Well, you did start on May 6, 2008, so it's been 8 years, 6 months and 26 days!  :funny:

Lysakowski, Bickerton & Yerxa were doing interviews in Winnipeg today. They were in Vancouver earlier in the week. Does anyone know/remember if they traveled in previous seasons?

Hi.  Newbie here.  I saw their Twitter posts too. Maybe they weren't interviewing but Race scouting instead?  Seems early to be interviewing.  I always assumed they interviewed in Toronto.

Welcome to RFF!
Pretty certain they were interviewing, not just scouting. The application deadline passed and they moved on to the next stage. They do not do formal casting calls BUT in previous years, they have gone on makeshift scouting missions to various locations...always BEFORE the application deadlines.
According to Mike Bickerton on Twitter yesterday:
Dec 11 Vancouver
Dec 13 Calgary
Dec 15 Saskatoon
Dec 16 Winnipeg
Dec 18 Toronto, where they went to Cambridge/Kitchener/Waterloo

Oh and one more thing....

Yes! You can see in his other tweets/instagram post that one part of the interview is answering question with a me/my partner answer (ex: who is the best athlete in the team).

I guess there will be a second round of interview for the east, with stops in Ottawa, Montréal, Halifax and maybe St-Johns? (spec)

So, you'd THINK they would of stopped the interviews on Dec 18.

When will they start again?

I would think maybe December 28-29??

I assume they also have a tonne of interviews to do in Toronto (given the population of the city).  Maybe they are crossing the country first and will finish in Toronto.  Of course this is all speculation.

It looks like they are in Newfoundland based on Twitter.

Yes. Both Mark Lysakowski and Mike Bickerton arrived in St. John's late this afternoon. I imagine they will do interviews tomorrow. :hoot:

I can only speculate. I know that Mike Yerxa went home to family in the Maritimes for the holidays. So, they could have started their "tour" in Toronto, done them just before Xmas break (which I doubt, because of time) or they will finish there. Maybe the latter?

do we reckon that Tar Canada will ever go to 2 seasons per year?

I just can't see that happening.
If it were to, this would have been the year to do it (Canada's sesquicentennial).

This goes into speculation, but wouldn't it be a great idea to have a public starting line, like in S25 and S27.
Maybe in front of the Parliament in Ottawa, for Canada's 150th bday...with some Politicians, and maybe even PM Trudeau hahaha
