Help the United Way, Throw Rocks on Oct 21st

Or Scissors. Or paper. It’s really your choice.

Next week, Fort McMurray will be host to the first ever United Way Rock-Paper-Scissors Tournament – many will enter, only one will win.

Choose Your Weapon - Rock Paper Scissors Contest for the United Way

If you think you’ve got what it takes to become Fort McMurray’s Pooh-bah of Paper, then don’t forget that you need to pre-register on Tuesday, October 19th.

After you’ve registered, all you need to do is set aside your lunch hour on Thursday, October 21st, and head over to the Provincial Building Terrace for a great tourney and a great cause.

There’s a Facebook event page for those who FB, and for more info, you can either head over to the United Way Events page, or click on the image on this post.

Either way, I hope to see you there – throwing rocks for the United Way.
