The promotions team for the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier weathered non-stop rain during the 16th annual Kamloops Rotary Golf Classic, June 19 at the Rivershore Estates and Golf Links.
While it wasn’t the best day for golf, it was a perfect opportunity for volunteers to show their determination to make sure the community packs the house at the Interior Savings Centre, March 1-9, for the Canadian men’s curling championship.

The Brier ambassadors spent the day promoting ticket sales, encouraging golfers to get involved as volunteers and letting everyone know about the Host Committee’s monthly draw to win a pass for opening weekend at the Brier. Greg Sykes was announced as the winner of the June draw.
The weather took a dramatic turn for the volunteers’ next assignment. In spite of 38-degree heat, they were out in full force for Canada Day celebrations at Riverside Park.
Radio personality Jim Reynolds, representing media partner NL Broadcasting, was on hand all day, providing live reports on the action at the Tim Hortons Brier booth – including updates on the new Rock Pong game where contestants won some great prizes.
The volunteers will be presenting Rock Pong again July 13 at the Kamloops Highland Games and they’ll be back on the job July 26-27 at the Kamloops Marathon and Expo.
