2014 Tim Hortons Brier
Presented by SecurTek

A hot time for Brier promotions team

The action has been heating up in Kamloops throughout August for Tim Hortons Brier volunteers as they spread the word on the 2014 Canadian men’s curling championship, March 1-9 in the Interior Savings Centre.

The Brier booth was a hub of activity for the 45,000 to 60,000 people who attended the 2nd annual Daybreak Ribfest, Aug. 9-11. The three-day festival featured live entertainment and some of the tastiest ribs in the country.

Many of the visitors stopped by the booth, signing up for volunteer positions and picking up ticket information. There was also plenty of action on the Rock Pong table where lucky winners walked away with Tim Hortons Brier gear.

The next stop on the promotions schedule was the BC Senior Games, Aug. 20-24 where nearly 4,000 athletes competed in a variety of sports, such as track and field, cycling, golf, hockey and, most importantly, curling.

The Senior Games made its debut in Kamloops in 1996, the same year Manitoba’s Jeff Stoughton came to town to win his first Brier. A number of the athletes, especially the curlers, dropped by for information on the upcoming edition of the Tim Hortons Brier and enter the draw for an opening weekend event pass.

It was a busy week on the sporting scene as the volunteers also attended the 8th annual Foundation Golf Classic, in support of Thompson Rivers University, Aug. 23 at The Dunes at Kamloops.

Brent Hamblin has been announced as the winner of the August draw for The Opener ticket package.
