In the world of sports, the closest most fans get to elite athletes is the view from the stands, what they see in the media… and possibly a chance to line up for an autograph after the game. When it comes to championship curling, fans and competitors share a unique relationship that starts on opening day and grows stronger throughout the week.  A Full Event pass to the 2012 Tim Hortons Brier gives you so many opportunities to actually meet every member of every team!

Your introduction comes at the Fan Appreciation Night, Friday, March 2 in Keith’s Patch at the CNH Saskatoon Training Centre.  They’ll all be there to join fans in the launch of Canada’s most legendary party.  Make sure the Patch is a regular stop during the week because the curlers often drop in to relax when the last draw is done. Then you have the chance to get an insight to Canada’s best curlers – and some fascinating curling personalities – at the daily Up Close and Personal interviews.  It’s an informal atmosphere with all kinds of surprises! And, Team Autograph sessions make it easy to get the players to sign on the line.  The best part is, you don’t have to wait outside the locker room hoping they show up.  If you miss any of your favourite stars during the week, all the teams will be on hand for a final session on championship weekend. “You Gotta Be There” to experience a week you’ll never forget… click here to purchase your Full Event pass today.
