OTTAWA – On the heels of last summer’s successful program launch, the Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the team will resume its Hometown Tour series through eastern Ontario and western Quebec beginning on Tuesday, Aug. 18.
Held in conjunction with CTV Ottawa, TSN 1200 Ottawa, the Egg Farmers of Ontario, Canadian Tire and RV Canada, the tour will once again feature two Senators players per visit, Bell Media personalities, autograph sessions, interactive games, prizing opportunities and more as the caravan makes its way through Alexandria and Gloucester, Ont., on Aug.18, Gatineau and Hull, Que., on Aug. 19, Casselman and Cornwall, Ont., on Aug. 20, Carleton Place and Renfrew, Ont., on Aug. 25, Kingston and Perth, Ont., on Aug. 26, and Kemptville and Nepean, Ont., on Aug. 27.
The second installment of the Senators Hometown Tour will see each stop occur at the respective locale’s (one of, if there are more than one) Canadian Tire location. For further details including location and timing of each stop, and for information on which players will appear where, please click here. The team will reveal which players will participate in the various stops of the tour each Monday.
Throughout the tour, the CTV Ottawa evening news and TSN 1200 will feature live interviews at various locales highlighting the players and fans in attendance. Egg Farmers of Ontario will also be on-site to distribute recipe cards featuring Senators players.
Once again this summer, the Senators will institute a wristband policy in an effort to streamline player autograph sessions at each tour stop. Wristbands, in limited quantity, will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis at the local Canadian Tire store’s customer service desk on the day of the tour stop beginning at 9 a.m. Wristbands for the autograph sessions are subject to availability.
Each tour stop will also feature a chance to win two tickets to Senators’ home games throughout the season. Fans are encouraged to monitor the team’s social platforms for additional opportunities to win prizes on the day of the respective tour stop.
