    Worlds longest game and they are playing at -27C

    Everyone playing has a relative or love one that has, or had cancer. They have done this before and each time it gets larger. They were the first to get in the World Book of Records for the longest game. They are trying to reclaim the title.

    It is -40 C with the wind chill right now, and heading down. The weather is suppose to stay that cold until Sunday when it will start to warm up.

    Playing with meaning

    This year they are hopping to collect $500,000 for cancer fighting equipment. Takes a lot of dedication, my hat is off to them.

    Just thought I would let you know they broke the record. They finished playing on the weekend and so far have collected over $300,000 to fight cancer.

    When they started it was cold, with the temperatures going down to -40C, over -50C with the windchill. By the time they finished the temp was up to zero.

    The boys did a great job sticking it out. This turned out to be a community effort with lots of donations of food, medical help, as well as anything else that needed doing to keep the game going.
