Rock the Bid committee to approach City of Penticton council for support

Rock the Bid committee members seek City of Penticton support to win 2018 Scotties tournament bid
ROCK THE BID now has 2002 Olympic bronze medallist Julie Skinner backing their bid to bring the Scott Tournament of Hearts to Penticton in 2018.

The 2018 Scotties Tournament of Hearts Committee plans to appear before City of Penticton council on June 20.

Rock the Bid co-chair Kim Kirkham said they are seeking support from council in whatever the city can do, whether it be financially or offering moral support. Kirkham is urging the public to come and support their efforts.

The Rock the Bid committee plans to continue selling the $100 deposit passes until the end of June.

The $100 deposit is refundable if Penticton is unsuccessful in its bid. If Penticton wins the bid, patrons who have made the $100 deposit would have to follow through and buy tickets for the tournament, or their deposit is forfeited. Besides at the rally events, deposits can be made at the Valley First Box Office (at the SOEC) in Penticton, via phone at 1-877-SOEC-TIX (763-2849) or online
