Maples NBA Excursion 2010 A Success!
Picture Gallery Now Up!

Maples kids on court at Target Center
Group shot on court at the Target Center prior to the game.

On November 18, 2010 we packed 44 Maples Basketball players and friends into a Beaver Bus Lines highway coach and ventured to Minneapolis, MN to take in a Lakers versus Timberwolves game at the Target Center.

The trip included two nights stay in the plush Weston Minneapolis and an hour of practice time on court at the Target Center prior to the game.

All participants arrived safely - if not a bit tired out - on Nov 20, 2010 after their amazing trip and early reports say everyone had a blast. No major glitches and the itinerary went off relatively uneventful. The Lakers won 112 to 95.

Special thanks to our basketball Convenor Lisa Jitoboh and her daughter Meghan for their hard work in organizing and supervising the trip.

Pictures from the trip are now up in our Basketball gallery here.

A complete library of trip photos with larger sized versions may be found on our Convenor's Facebook page - go to Facebook and search for Lisa Jitoboh here.

If you don't already have a Facebook account you will have to sign up for one to access the full picture gallery.
