A man from Lithuania had the experience of a lifetime Tuesday night in Winkler.

Arunas Paliulis watched his first live hockey game as the Flyers took on the Neepawa Natives.


Paliulis says he was amazed at the sight.

He says he couldn't believe so many people would come together for it with such poor weather conditions as they would only see that during the summer in his home town.

Paliulis is visiting farmers in the area learning about grain practices and looking to purchase machinery.

He says they are overwhelmed with the hospitality and graciousness of people in the area.
