Senators hitting the road for inaugural Hometown Tour series

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the team will launch its inaugural Hometown Tour series through eastern Ontario and western Quebec beginning on Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Held in conjunction with CTV Ottawa, TSN 1200 Ottawa and RV Canada, the tour will feature Senators players, Bell Media personalities, autograph sessions, interactive games, prizing opportunities and more as the caravan makes its way through Aylmer and Gatineau, Que., in addition to Arnprior, Barrhaven, Brockville, Cornwall, Hawkesbury, Kingston, Pembroke, Rockland and Smiths Falls, Ont.

With the exception of Smiths Falls, each tour stop will occur at the respective locale’s Canadian Tire location. While in Smiths Falls, the tour stop will take place at the Smiths Falls Memorial Centre (71 Cornelia St., Smiths Falls) where the official ground breaking of the fourth phase of the Sens RINK (Recreational Investments in Neighbourhood for Kids) Project will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 20.

The Hometown Tour will see scheduling stops on the following dates: Brockville (from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 3:30 p.m.) and Cornwall (4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 6 p.m.) on Tuesday, Aug. 19; Kingston (from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 3:30 p.m.) and Smiths Falls (4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 6:15 p.m.) on Wednesday, Aug. 20; Arnprior (from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 3:30 p.m.) and Pembroke (4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 6 p.m.) on Thursday, Aug. 21.

The following week’s stops will include: Rockland (from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 4 p.m.) and Hawkesbury (4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 6 p.m.) on Tuesday, Aug. 26; Gatineau, Que. (from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 4 p.m.) and Aylmer, Que. (4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 6 p.m.) on Wednesday, Aug. 27 and Orleans (from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 3:30 p.m.) and Barrhaven (from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. with the autograph session beginning at 6 p.m.) on Thursday, Aug. 28.

Throughout the tour, CTV News at Six and TSN 1200 will feature live interviews from various locales highlighting the players and fans in attendance. While subject to change, player attendees will be confirmed via the Senators’ Twitter feed (@Senators) on the Monday of each week.

The Senators will institute a wristband policy in an effort to streamline player autograph sessions at each tour stop. Wristbands, in limited quantity, will be made available at the local Canadian Tire store’s customer service desk on the day of the tour stop beginning at 9 a.m.

Each tour stop will also feature a chance to win two tickets to the Senators’ Oct. 16 home-opening contest against Colorado. Fans are encouraged to monitor the team’s social platforms for additional opportunities to win prizes on the day of the respective tour stop.

A United in Red fan banner will also accompany the Hometown Tour, providing fans with the opportunity to submit messages of support to the team. The banner will later be displayed at Canadian Tire Centre as Senators players arrive for the first day of training camp.
