Talking Trevor Linden autograph session

For all you diehard Canucks fans, Trevor Linden will be signing autographs at the new CIBC in White Rock/South Surrey from 11 - 1 on Saturday, April 4. 2245 160th St (just south of 24th Ave).

Its my gig so I should have asked for a VIC meet in the parking lot!

Well what time did you get there? It started at 11am, so I hope you didn't try to go at 12:30pm. I imagine you'd have to line up at like 9am to be safe.

Just so everyone who reads this knows, Trevor Linden is one of the most upstanding PERSONS I have ever met. In an age where the say pro-athletes dont care, he was something else.

I arrived at 6AM and there were already people waiting. By 10AM, well over 300, and within an hour of that I would estimate at least 800. We had to cut the line.

I got an estimate of the number and he refused to stop signing until everyone who was waiting got an autograph. So we stopped allowing people to wait or he would have never left. As it turns out, instead of the 11:00 - 1:00, he didnt finish signing until well after 2:00PM to make sure that everyone got something. Sooo impressed.

If we had wanted to cut it at 1:00PM, we would have had to cut the line at 10:30, seriously. It was a craaaaazy day!

I am sorry for anyone that didn't get something signed, but he was absolutley, 100% committed to the fans. It was admirable and extremely rare in this day and age. And after he was finished signing for the fans in the publilc area of the branch, he still signed additional items for charity, etc.

True leadership, true commitment, true class.

I will try to give more advance information next time and the dates for the next signing sessions have been set. I will confirm them and post for everyone. Just go early. Very, very early!

I was at the signing and let me tell you, Linden is a class act! I arrived at 10:55 so was at the tail end of the line. We didn't get our autographs until well after 1pm...

The next two sessions will be in May and June at new CIBC branches at Denman and Robson in downtown Vancouver and the other in Burnaby at Kingsway and Acorn (Highgate/Middlegate).

Maybe you be able to get to one of those. I will post the exact dates when I can confirm them.

I have a 550 sq. ft. 1 bedroom apartment, so having someone on the couch is just an annoying ****block at night
