With Stampede’s kick off a few days away, Calgary is a-buzz with all things western… And why wouldn’t they be! 2012 marks the Calgary Stampede’s centennial year and I’ll be covering ALL the action from inside and outside the gates!
100 years of chuck-wagons, candy apples, shorty short cut offs (maybe they weren’t THAT short 100 years ago)… and big shiny buckles!
This year I have been so fortunate to receive several amazing offers & invites and now it’s time to let the cat out of the bag on two of them.
1. Starting on July 6, Shaw TV has asked me to appear in segments on their show “Saddle Up” throughout the 10 days of Stampede. This is an opportunity to take the stories and adventures you see on my website into a live segment on TV.
The show will air live daily from 10-11am and will re-run several times throughout the day.
So if you haven’t had a chance to see me live and in action, this will be the next best thing.
2. Lucky me has been granted an all access pass from Virgin Mobile as I have been named their official Stampede concert series reporter!
I’ll be taking you backstage and in to the heart of concerts. I’ll get to experience what it’s like to be treated like a Virgin VIP and if I’m lucky, I’ll get to meet some or all of the artists! And they’ve even created me my own hashtag for Twitter! #vmstampede
Of course Virgin knows how important my readers are to me so they want to offer a set of tickets to 3 out of the 4 concerts so you can be a part of all the action too!
Tomorrow I’ll have details on how you can win a chance to see some of the hottest performers whom will be in Calgary next week!!
Mix this excitement with a several other parties, tons of mini doughnuts, and a pair of Fab Cowboy boots and you’ve got 2 weeks of boot scootin’ adventures & prizes coming your way!!
