In particular, I made up my mind to revisit the Edmonton Corn Maze ~ and this time I brought my friend Nicole. See Nicole is deathly afraid of corn mazes; she was truly worried today that we would be lost in the field and never find our way out. I wanted to help her overcome her fear - plus I had ulterior motives.
This year the corn maze was cut in the shape of the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships logo. The hockey tournament will be hosted in Alberta this winter between the cities of Calgary and Edmonton. I am currently volunteering for Hockey Canada along with Nicole on their social media team trying to get fans engaged long before the tournament. I'm on a permanent rotation to manage the @hc_wjc Twitter handle and for the last two weeks I've been working on fan engagement, my style! So what better way to get Twitter followers involved then by taking them to the corn maze with us today?!
Nicole and I had an absolute blast getting lost and finding our way over and over. I think I've helped ease Nicole's fears while we got out for some sunshine and exercise plus our Twitter fans loved being involved in our little escapade. No matter how busy it seems to get in my life I'm happy for moments like today when work, play and friendship can all come together!
