The 2012 Tim Hortons Brier… Now That’s Entertainment!

When the 2012 Tim Hortons Brier opens March 3rd in Saskatoon, it marks the start of one of the most anticipated events in the curling world – for an entire week packed with amazing entertainment on and off the ice! In the Credit Union Centre, the best teams in the country will battle for the right to hoist the Brier Tankard, emblematic of Canadian men’s curling supremacy.  Meanwhile, just down the road at the Saskatoon Training Centre, the most enthusiastic partiers in the country will keep the Original 16 Patch rocking ‘til the late hours of the night.

The Patch is the place everyone goes when the draws are done – and that includes fans, competitors, sponsors and volunteers.  You’ll find a great selection of food and beverages and an exceptional line-up of Canada’s hottest bands including Kim Mitchell, Hey Romeo, Longshot, March Hare, the Boom Chucka Boys, the Chevelles and Mudmen. For a taste of the championship action, fans can take part in the Cool Shots competition – the small-scale version of the roaring game played on shuffleboard-style tables – with a new round taking place every day.  Sign up for free and take your shot at the cash prizes. Complimentary shuttle service is available at Credit Union Centre to take you on the five-minute ride to all the fun at the Original 16 Patch. The best part is, all this is included in the price of every same-day event pass… along with access to the Purple Heart Lounge right on-site in Credit Union Centre.  It’s a relaxing spot for a beverage and a bite and a chance to meet face-to-face with the athletes. The lounge is also the setting for daily Team Autograph sessions where you can pose for a photo with your favourite curlers and have them sign on the line.  And, make sure you’re there for the popular Up Close and Personal Interviews… that’s when you can ask the questions and get an entirely new insight to the greatest names in the game. The Tim Hortons Brier features a whole lot of value in every event pass.  For the full entertainment schedule, just click here. “You Gotta Be There” for one of the most entertaining experiences in the sporting world… the Tim Hortons Brier, March 3-11 in Credit Union Place.  Click here to get your event pass right now.
