Current Courier Conditions

The month of May is, quite possibly, the most important for North American sports. Look at the facts:

- The NHL and NBA playoffs are moving quickly.

- MLB's season is now in full swing (pardon the pun).

- The NFL and CFL hold their annual drafts.

On top of that, check out the local sports scene. This month has already seen public golf courses open up and just yesterday, women's soccer dominated headlines as a friendly was staged between Canada and the U.S.

With all of these athletic exhibitions taking place, hardware comes to the forefront of mind. Trophies are the ultimate symbol of sporting excellence as it has been for decades upon decades.

And throughout their history, there have been mishaps in transporting these sacred treasures, and there may be no better example than the Stanley Cup.

Hockey's ultimate prize, of course, goes on one long road trip after being awarded to the winner of the NHL playoffs. Each player (and most management) get their turn with the Cup for a day, often with the Keeper of the Cup, Phil Pritchard, in tow; but there have been a few instances of the Cup missing its appointed rounds.

For example, in 2006, after the Carolina Hurricanes won Lord Stanley's Mug, Andrew Hutchinson's day with the Cup was to include his son being baptised in the famed trophy. It never happened as the Cup arrived late to the ceremony.

Another shining example took place in 1924. The Montreal Canadiens were set to celebrate their victory in style at owner Leo Dandurand's house. One problem - en route to the fete, one of the cars transporting players - and the Stanley Cup - got a flat. In the rush to fix the tire, the players left Lord Stanley's Mug on the side of the road.

Now far be it from us to be presumptuous, but when the Winnipeg Jets do win the Stanley Cup, we want to offer our courier service. Our expert couriers will ensure that sport's most coveted prize will reach each and every destination safely, securely and in one piece; unlike several other instances in the Cup's history.

As much as Winnipeggers complain about the weather, the last few days have justified our impulse to kvetch.

After seemingly being out of the woods Wednesday with temperatures hitting a beautiful high of 15 degrees (Celsius, not Fahrenheit like we had just last month), the lovely weather bubble burst in a big way, sprinkling us first with rain, then with snow.

The result of all of this moisture? The muck of snow slush mixed with sand and mud that we thought we were at least going to get temporary relief from is back, and that means your shoes and pants are once again liable to be victimized.

Yes, spring weather has its ups and downs and we'll tolerate the moist conditions in the name of actually being able to get outside and take a walk, barbeque or even get that first outdoor project taken care of; but there's nothing worse than trying to hop, skip or jump around mud and water in business attire. Sure, co-workers and clients understand that it comes with the territory, but there's nothing that can upset ourselves more than mis-stepping into what we thought was solid ground (but end up sinking quicker than a stone!

Can you believe the end of March is almost here?

It seems like only yesterday we were coated in the snowy blanket of February; now... okay we're still coated in a snowy blanket but the year is progressing at a rapid pace.

The end-of-month rush has certainly caught up with us and many of us were snagged off guard, especially with tax filing day looming. Yes, that one day during the year that sends everyone scurrying to find receipts and count their donations is almost here.

It's during this time of year that accountants are known to bring their pajamas to work, anticipating a company-wide sleepover as they work into the wee hours filing tax returns for their clients. Trying to have some sort of semblance of life, let alone finding time to even meet with customers, is thrown completely out the window; and yet this is the time when that conversation is vital, especially when documents need to be signed and payments sent and received.

The most effective way to handle these important documents, of course, is in person; but with time at a premium, it isn't practical for yourself or another office dweller to make the connection.

Instead, count on Sierra Courier's delivery experts. We can run your documents securely across Winnipeg in as little as less than an hour depending on the courier service you choose.
