Have you always wanted to dunk Mayor Jangula? How about a final shot at your principal before summer holidays? Maybe the head of the Comox Valley RCMP deserves a soaking? Well, here’s your chance.

The Comox Valley Record is using the Courtenay Centennial Tailgate Party as a fundraising platform to raise money for the Centennial Legacy Endowment Fund.

The event takes place Saturday, June 27, at the Comox Valley Sports Centre

Local dignitaries were more than willing to oblige and we have a partial list of participants, who will be precariously perched above a tub of water, waiting for someone to hit the bull’s eye and make a splash.

The following is a tentative schedule.

1 p.m. – Courtenay Elementary School principal Kyle Timms

1:30 p.m. – RCMP Inspector Tim Walton

2 p.m. – Courtenay Mayor Larry Jangula

2:30 p.m. – 98.9 The GOAT Morning Show host Dave Tymo

3 p.m. – Coun. Manno Theos

3:30 p.m. – Coun. Bob Wells

4:30 p.m. – Coun. Erik Eriksson

5 p.m. – Coun. Doug Hillian

5:30 p.m. – Record editor Terry Farrell

 

 

The Tailgate Party precedes the CFL season opener, featuring one of the league’s great rivalries – the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. That game will be broadcast on a massive outdoor screen at the Sports Centre and in true tailgate fashion, there will also be a chili cook-off, with a grand prize of $500. To book your free parking spot for the tailgate party, or to sign up for the chili cook-off, go to courtenay.ca/100
