We just about have my brother in law brother and his wife convinced to join us at the PAR TAA. They are one time veterans of CN and live near Providence. Bill and I were at Waterfire last weekend and it was beautiful. I think we'll do a gondola ride in the fall.
Great pictures of the Couples get together in Providence. Hope anyone that is still deciding chooses to join the fun. Thanks to Kev for organizing such a cool party. We are looking forward to meeting everyone.
Jim and Rita your wish may come true here !!!!!
Stanley Cup expected in Providence in September
10:34 AM EDT on Tuesday, July 12, 2011
By CAROLYN THORNTON Journal Sports Writer
Ever since the Boston Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks last month to claim their first NHL title in 39 years, the Stanley Cup has been traveling the country, making appearances at several big events and in the hometowns of various team members.
The 118-year-old trophy will continue its customary tour of the NHL champions’ homes over the next few months.
Discussions are under way to include Providence, home of Boston’s AHL farm team, the Providence Bruins, on the tour.
“The city, the state and Providence Bruins are in conversations with the Boston Bruins about a celebration with the Cup in Providence,” David Ortiz, spokesman for Providence Mayor Angel Taveras, told The Providence Journal on Monday. “We’re hopeful to have that event in late September.”
The First Annual Boston Bruins Black & Gold Game will be played at The Dunk on Sept. 20.
The Stanley Cup’s tour with the Bruins began in mid-June, after they won Game Seven of the Stanley Cup finals on June 15.
It included a parade through the streets of Boston, along with appearances on the Today Show, at Fenway Park and at Foxwoods’ MGM Grand.
It then spent several days with Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs and his family, at their homes on Martha’s Vineyard and in Buffalo, N.Y., and at Jacobs’ Delaware North offices, both in upstate New York and in California.
The trophy was taken to Yosemite National Park and to Pebble Beach.
Last week, it made a stop in Whitefish, Mont., the summer home of assistant coach Doug Houda, before returning to New England for an appearance with equipment manager Keith Robinson at the Tewksbury Country Club in Massachusetts, and with assistant trainer Derek Repucci at the Rochester, N.H., Ice Arena. It will be in Lake Placid, N.Y., on Tuesday, the hometown of Bruins head trainer Don DelNegro.

a short bus ride up the hill to:
Tina's on historic Federal Hill in Providence for a Jamaican home cooked dinner buffet with BYOB http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-XpfshdRfA
Then a short bus ride to the Waterfire event along the river
We just booked two rooms, ours and Linda and Steve's. All set for the PAR TAA fun in Providence in September. Looking forward to seeing the familiar faces, Jamaican restaurant, JA cocktails, Randymon, and waterfire. What a fun way to celebrate Couples Resorts while we await our next vacation: CSA in February.
Thanks for posting the water fire video, Kev. It really is beautiful to see. We had a small Jamaica pre-Par Taa with Kim and John at Linda and Steve's house. We topped the night off with some Jamaica Rum Creme. Will all be together again in Providence next month.
Well folks there are 48 days to go before we can get ourselves together and celebrate what we all enjoy! It's never t o late to Par Taa so don't miss out on a special evening we are going to have here in Providence RI. I don't see any of these going on anywhere else in the country? There is still time to get on board! Just drop me a line and I 'll point you in the right direction.
