Purolator to host customers at this year’s Calgary Stampede
From July 8 through to July 17, 2011, Purolator will be sponsoring a chuckwagon at the 2011 Calgary Stampede – an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival, proudly self-professed as being “the greatest outdoor show on earth”.
Over the course of the 10-day event, Purolator will be hosting 120 existing and prospective customers in the Calgary region in Purolator’s own branded barn. Select customers will be treated to a homestyle barbecue, prepared by Purolator teammates, and attend events at the Stampede. Tom Schmitt alongside members of Purolator’s leadership team will be on hand throughout the events to ensure customers fully experience the Calgary Stampede.
As part of the festivities, Purolator has purchased a chuckwagon and branded it to align with the existing fleet. Purolator’s branded chuckwagon with our sponsored driver Darcy Flad in the driver’s seat will be racing in front of 30,000 energetic fans in the annual Rangeland Derby – one of the more popular races and largest attraction at the Stampede. The Purolator chuckwagon will also be a part the Calgary Stampede Parade taking place the morning of July 8, 2011.
