The team will reveal which players will participate in the various stops of the tour via the team's website and social media channels in advance of the visits.
On each of the six days of the Hometown Tour, both CTV Ottawa News at 6 and TSN 1200 radio will feature live interviews from the various locations, highlighting the players and fans in attendance. For the third straight year, Egg Farmers of Ontario will be on site for all the Ontario stops providing fans with the latest installment of their 'egg-citing' Senators recipe cards and a chance to win prizing by playing the fan favourite game, Plinko.
In an effort to best serve fans in each market, the Senators will continue to institute a wristband policy for the 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 8 a.m. (8:30 a.m. in Shawville). Wristbands for the autograph sessions are subject to availability.
Each tour stop will feature a chance to win prizes, including tickets to Senators' home games throughout the 2017-18 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 and for information on each day's visit.
