She dressed up in her best Barrie Colts attire and proved herself unrivalled in Colts trivia, besting all other participants to claim the “BMO Ultimate CHL Fan” title.
As the winner of the BMO Ultimate CHL Fan contest, held Wednesday at the BMO Georgian Mall Branch, Marissa Peacock will now be entered into a random draw with other BMO Ultimate Fans from across the Ontario Hockey League for a chance to win the grand prize: a trip for two to the 2012 MasterCard Memorial Cup. She also won a special signed CHL team jersey with the BMO Ultimate CHL Fan crest.
“The contest is a great opportunity for BMO to deepen its relationship with the community through our shared passion for hockey, and give fans a chance to experience one of the biggest hockey events in North America,” said Susan Markus, Personal Banking Area Manager, BMO Bank of Montreal. “I’d like to thank all the enthusiastic fans who showed up in their most creative attires and congratulations to Tannis for proving herself as the BMO Ultimate Barrie Colts Fan.”
The contest and community celebration was held to kick off BMO’s new four-year partnership with the Canadian Hockey League, including the Ontario Hockey League and its member teams. Participants dressed in their Barrie Colts colours, jerseys and costumes, and 3 finalists were chosen by a panel of judges, comprised of the event MC Craig Ripley, BMO Branch Manager Richard O’Neill and Colts’ very own Dylan Smoskowitz. They were then put to the test with trivia questions provided by the team, and Ms. Peacock emerged victorious.
The grand prize winner will receive a trip for 2 to the 2012 MasterCard Memorial Cup in Shawinigan, Québec.
