I don’t always get far enough from downtown to go see a Bomber game, but I’m still a fan! So OK, it doesn’t look like we’re going to capture the Grey Cup this year. I’m not giving up hope yet, but even if we don’t, that’s OK! We downtown Winnipeggers can still get a chance to see the cup!
Did you know that this year is the 100th Grey Cup? Pretty big birthday! So they’re taking the Cup across the country by train, and that Grey Cup 100 Tour is coming through Winnipeg on October 6th, to Union Station and the Forks! You don’t have long – 11AM to 4PM – so seize the moment if you’re a Bomber fan cause there’s lots packed into just a few hours.
- Reebok will be there to give fans a chance to win 2013 CFL Season tickets
- There will be musical entertainment, face painting, a chance for fans to compare your hands and feet to your favourite CFL players and so much more
- There will be a virtual Punt, Pass, and Kick game
- Best of all, the Grey Cup Car, Museum Car and Team Car are down there and open to the public so you can hang out with the Cup!
