Next Generation Committee Wants to Tell Your Story … in 100 Years

I just posted on the Calgary Stampede blog about an awesome project that Peter and I are taken part in this Stampede. The Stampede Time Capsule (#CSTimeCapsule) will be telling the Stampede’s story from the last 100 years to Calgarians 100 years from now. It’s pretty exciting stuff … and there are plenty of opportunities for all Calgarians to leave their mark on the time capsule.

Here’s my post ….

Last weekend I had that pleasure of attending the Stampede 4 Corner Event in southeast Calgary. I was there with my fellow Next Generation Committee team members not only promoting our latest project but as a Calgarian getting excited for Stampede.

The smell of pancake breakfast, the western garb, the smiling faces, the country music … I had tingles on the back of my neck as soon as the event started. It really marked the start of Stampede season for me.

The 4 Corners events are the perfect blend of Stampede and community. The community crowd was gathering not only for the free Stampede breakfast but also to support local community organizations and cheer on community entertainment.

It really is the perfect event to tell Calgary about the Next Generation Committee’s time capsule. You haven’t heard of the time capsule? Check out the news release for more information, but in a sentence the time capsule is the Next Generation Committee’s way to captured the first 100 years of the Stampede and share it with the Calgary 100 years from now. Pretty exciting actually!

How exciting? Well I watched a child no more than 6 drop in her favorite Stampede memento into our time capsule at the 4 Corners event. Her eyes were wide as she exclaimed, “off to the future!!” Now that’s exciting!

PCinYYC Representin’ the Calgary Stampede Online

PCinYYC are always looking for ways to get involved in the community. After all we are advocates for community engagement and passionate about Calgary.

We’ve recently been given the opportunity to sit on the Calgary Stampede‘s Next Generation Commitee (NGC). This committee works to attract and engage the next generation of audiences as patrons, supporters and volunteers of the Calgary Stampede. The NGC is mandated to assist the Calgary Stampede in leveraging emerging and non-traditional promotions, marketing, social media, and online tools to promote the Calgary Stampede brand and events.

We are so excited to be a part of this team … and lend some of our time and blog space to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.

Here is @ppilarski‘s first blog for the Calgary Stampede blog – it’s focused on the Calgary Stampede Lotteries … did you know you can already be buying your tickets and avoiding line-ups at the grounds in July?

Hope you’ll follow along as we dive into another #yyc adventure.

Do you feel lucky, punk?  Well …. Do ya? (May 13th, 2011 by Peter Pilarski)

Because the 2011 Calgary Stampede Lotteries advanced ticket campaign is on now!  And this year the Lotteries feature more than $1.4 million in prizes, including trucks, boats, a fifth-wheel trailer, luxury vacations, a dream home and more than $310,000 in cash! 

What is fantastic about the Calgary Stampede Lotteries is that by giving yourself a chance to win by purchasing tickets, someone else can feel lucky too.
