The Perfect Roar for Two or More – Flex Ticket Packs are now on sale
- Updated: February 27, 2013
The Host Committee for the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, the most exciting event in Manitoba curling history, announced that Flex Ticket Packs are now on sale.
“Now, local sports fans have the opportunity to choose the games they really want to see, at the times that work best for their schedule,” said Host Chair Mitch Tarapasky. “It’s an exceptional value for what promises to be the biggest championship event our city’s ever seen.”
The Flex Pack consists of 18 draw tickets at a price of $469 and the only limit imposed is a maximum of two tickets per draw for the Saturday semi-finals and Sunday finals. Fans can choose to use the Flex Pack as the ideal nine-draw package for two people, or in any number of combinations for larger groups of friends or family members.
The top 16 teams in the country – eight men’s and eight women’s – will be on the ice December 1-8 at the MTS Centre for the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, the Canadian Curling Trials. Fans are guaranteed to see some local favourites competing for the right to represent our country at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.
Manitoba Olympic hopefuls Jeff Stoughton and Jennifer Jones lead the list of early qualifiers, along with Kevin Martin, Glenn Howard, Heather Nedohin and Stefanie Lawton. Three more teams of each gender will be determined at the end of the current season based on Canadian Team Ranking System (CTRS) standings.
If the race to Sochi were to end today, CTRS results would see Winnipeg’s Mike McEwen in the fifth qualifying position, with Morden’s Chelsea Carey in sixth place on the women’s side.
The final two men’s and women’s berths will be determined at the 2013 Capital One Road to the Roar, Nov. 5-10 in Kitchener. Manitoba’s Rob Fowler will be in the field along with a number of other top teams from across the country – including Brad Gushue, Brad Jacobs, Jim Cotter, Crystal Webster, Amber Holland and Cheryl Bernard.
With every ticket to the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings, fans also receive complimentary admission to the Patch, curling’s legendary party place – just a short indoor walk from the arena in the Winnipeg Convention Centre.
The Patch is alive all day, every day… and late into the night, with a great selection of food and beverages and an outstanding lineup of live entertainment. It’s also the place to meet the athletes.
The Old Classic full event pass, featuring one ticket to all 18 draws, is still available at a price of $429.
