High marks for the Brier at Highland Games
- Updated: July 17, 2013
The celebration of the Kamloops Highland Games, July 13 at Albert McGowan Park, provided an ideal setting for the volunteer team promoting the most legendary event in the curling world.
The Highland Games, attracting crowds in the range of 1,000 people throughout the day, featured traditional heavy lifting competitions, dancing, music and a free-spirited beer garden.
When the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier comes to Kamloops, March 1-9 at the Interior Savings Centre, the top shooters in the game will be doing some heavy lifting of their own as they slide more than 40 pounds of granite down the ice in the quest for the title in the Canadian men’s curling championship.
And, there will be no shortage of live music, dancing and libations at the Patch – curling’s number one party place – where the house will rock all day, every day… and late into the night!
The volunteers were on the scene at the Highland Games to promote ticket packages, volunteer opportunities and encourage everyone to take their best shots in the popular Rock Pong game. Tim Hortons Brier merchandise was awarded to the lucky winners.
Visitors to the Tim Hortons Brier booth also had the chance to enter the monthly draw to pick up The Opener, an opening weekend pass to all the excitement next March at the Interior Savings Centre. The next winner will be announced after the volunteers take part in the Kamloops Marathon and Expo, July 26-27 at the Tournament Capital Centre.
Brier volunteers also came out in full force for the recent blitz to distribute the latest event brochure, putting them front-and-centre in well over 100 businesses in the community. Brochures are also on the road across British Columbia, Alberta and beyond as volunteers head out for summer holidays.
