Hi guys!

This week a coworker and I joined the DK Canada ping pong team for the annual

Scotiabank Pongapalooza tournament, which raises money for First Book Canada.

Last year I subbed in for a missing team member and helped the team place first (of all

the teams to come in last). This year we we had two amazing coaches, Evan Munday,

author of The Dead Kid Detective Agency series and Hilary Leung, author of the

Ninja Cowboy Bear series, who helped us drink some cocktails, come up with a cheer,

and place first AGAIN (in all the teams to come in last). It was pretty epic. Here are

some pictures:

There were autographs, smiles, some minor confusion, (mostly about how to play ping pong) and lots of


‘Till next year: First place (coming in last) undefeated!
