The Canucks Playoff Race, which goes down Tuesday, April 12th, is a hybrid of reality TV’s two best shows: Survivor and the Amazing Race.
This battle of wit and stamina will pin 10 contests against each other in a series of contests that will test the mind, body and soul with the champion winning a pair of tickets to Game 1, Round 1 at Rogers Arena.
On April 6th, @VanCanucks tweeted that the first 10 contestants down to the team store at the arena would have a chance to win these coveted tickets, and in just under five minutes we gathered our group.
They have no idea what they’ve gotten themselves into.
The details of the event won’t be revealed until April 12th, until then you can help determine in what order the contests begin the race.
Below is a list of the competitors, including their number of Twitter followers. The person who gains the most followers from Saturday afternoon at 12 p.m. until next Tuesday at 9 a.m. will get a jump on everyone. The second place finisher will start second, and so on.
Keep an eye out on Canucks.com/playoffrace leading up to April 13th and be sure to follow the event through and @VanCanucks on Twitter – you could win signed items and Canucks merchandise!
The world is waiting… outwit, outplay, outlast!
IM IN THIS!!!
Please help me win playoff tickets from the Canucks by following me on Twitter (@ayeo) until next Thursday!
Last Wednesday, the Canucks sent out a tweet stating “The first 10 people who get to Canucks Team Store will have a chance to win Game 1 playoff tickets!”
I skytrained/ran from Broadway and Granville and somehow made it in the top 10!!…to be entered into the Canucks Race for a chance to win playoff tickets haha. So next week on April 13th, I will be competing against 9 other people in an Amazing Race competition.
The Canucks are staggering the start times for the first challenge and the person with most followers by Wednesday will be able to start first! I am an underdog in this competition (im up against 8 guys and 1 girl) so I would love your support/help to get this advantage. =)

SO WHY SHOULD YOU CHEER FOR ME!
Unfortunately, I was put on the spot so my video of “why I should go to the playoffs” does not make sense so here is why you should support me:
1) I have been a fan since I was a child
2) The Canucks are my motivational heroes.
3) You will have a chance to win prizes as well by following us on twitter.
5) I miraculously made it to the Canucks Team Store in 10 minutes even though I was at Broadway and Granville (everyone came from offices in Downtown)
6) While waiting to see who we play for Round 1, I made 3 tentative travel plans to watch the Canucks play in the opposing stadium since Canucks tickets sold out here
