A couple weeks back I was tipped off that Arctic Bay will be having a mystery guest sometime over the next few weeks. I was sworn to secrecy and didn't want to jinx things by mentioning it. (The weather can be notoriously fickle this time of year when it comes to flight schedules.) But seeing as the mystery visitor's arrival was mentioned during morning announcements I can now let the cat out of the bag. At the end of the month our community and school will be paid a visit by Nashville Predators forward Jordan Tootoo. While not a marquee player, he is definitely a role model for kids up here in Nunavut. I'm hoping to get an autograph for my young nephew...future NHL goalie! Hopefully the weather cooperates. It was difficult to tell it was spring with the nasty bit of wind we had today.
