Proud to Represent...
it sure is an exciting time to be in Vancouver. The
Vancouver Canucks are in the Stanley Cup Finals for
the first time in 17 years. WooHoo!!! You can really
feel the excitement around the city. Go Canucks!!!
Here's a little fun hockey trivia for you...
What are the plastic things that hold the hockey net
to the ice called?
Marsh Flexible Goal Peg
Dad (Fred Marsh Sr) invented them back in the early
80's and they have been used by the NHL since 1991.
The design and material give them a flexibility that
allows the net to move when jostled, but remain on
the pegs during regular play. The pegs will bend
when the net is bumped, then return to their
original position. Upon strong impact, such as a
player crashing into the net, the net will pop off
the pegs and prevent injury to the player. The nets
can be replaced in seconds.
In the fall of 2000 my Dad proudly accepted the
Manning Innovation Award for his invention,
making hockey a much safer sport.
Pretty cool, eh?
So next time you're watching a game and the net
comes off, you can impress all your friends and say,
that's the Marsh Peg!!!"
Oh, while on the subject of hockey, congratulations
to everyone in
Winnipeg. That's awesome!!!
Have a great June. Hope it's a busy one for you. If
you need any help closing the sale, we're always
here to help.

Ten Reasons to Visit Puerto Vallarta
Canto del Sol
- There is nothing like staying at a comfortable,
beautiful resort with great food and service, that is
walking distance to the malecon (boardwalk) and
Love is in the air with beautiful sunsets along the
beach. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton sure had
the right idea. (John Huston's film, Night of the
Iguana, was shot almost entirely in the ocean side
jungle of Mismaloya in PV.)
8. Art & sculptures
- Puerto Vallarta is famous for the amazing sculptures
found on the malecon and around town.
- After a great day of sun and fun, heading out for
drinks and dancing at one of the hot spots may be just
what you need- whether you are young, old, straight,
gay, quiet or wild!
6. Tequila tasting
- Head out on one of the tours to see how they make
tequila from the blue agave plant. Of course generous
tasting is included. Real tequila is only made in the
state of Jalisco. My favourite is the chocolate
- The sub-tropical climate of PV, can't be beat, year
- There are so many great beaches and beach activities
to enjoy in PV which is set on the amazing Banderas
Bay. Whether you enjoy relaxing in the shade reading a
book, or participating in some of the sea-side water
sports, you will find it in PV.
- I sure enjoy the adventure activities such as
kayaking, snorkeling and the jungle zip-lines.
- I love the famous local dishes from the sate of
Jalisco. Don't miss trying "tortas ahogadas" (spicy
salsa sandwich) or my new favourite - pozole tapatio
(delicious corn and meat soup).
Canto del Sol
-The tennis, spa and great activities for all ages
keep me coming back. Oh, did I mention Canto del Sol
already? (Well it is worth mentioning twice...) Visit
Kim Crosby, SunLovers Travel, Victoria, BC
had several opportunities to visit the Real properties
in Cancun and the Riviera Maya and have been super
impressed. Great locations, service and accomodations.
After booking several wedding groups at the Royal
Playa del Carmen, my local Rep. Freddie Marsh informed
me of the RR Members Site. I have since inputted my
group bookings and have earned nearly $1100.00 USD.
This was a huge bonus! In addition to having
completely satisfied clients and successful wedding
Few resorts or hotels offer incentives that match the
RR Member Program with Real Resorts and I'm very
fortunate and thankful to be working with a company
who not only appreciates the Travel Agent community
but acknowledges our efforts and loyalty.
Congratulations Kim everyone at Real Resorts!!!
