Which one would be better to go to? Touchdown Manitoba looks pretty short, only 5 hours, is the Blue & Gold House the proper Bombers party? My insane wife and I are planning on braving the taunts and go to one of these parties for some good hearted trash talk and bs'ing.
Both are official Bomber parties. This was posted at the Bombers forum:
One Week Until Touchdown Manitoba!
With the Grey Cup Festival just around the corner, fans are reminded that tickets for Touchdown Manitoba - the biggest Manitoba party during Grey Cup week - will be on sale at the Bomber Store and the Bomber Store online at bluebombers.com/store until end of business day on Wednesday, November 23rd.
All tickets purchased on line after Monday will only be available through will call at the event. Tickets purchased on site at the Convention Centre will only be available on a first come first serve basis. Touchdown Manitoba is the unofficial kick off to Grey Cup week.
This year Touchdown Manitoba will continue the tradition it has set since 1983 by providing top quality entertainment and fun to all those in attendance. Touchdown Manitoba is also pleased to announce that Vancouver's own Faith & Desire will be the house band while Hot Wax Entertainment will be providing the music to keep the afternoon grooving. There will be the traditional Manitoba social food, a silent auction and special appearances by Blue Bomber Alumni, the Grey Cup, Blue Lightning cheerleaders and much more. The Bomber Store will also have its annual set up for those looking to purchase Blue Bomber merchandise. Also new for this year is a keepsake photo booth and QB Football toss for prizes.
Don't miss out on what is sure to be a highlight of Grey Cup 2011.
Blue Bomber Fans are also reminded that this year is also the first year of the BLUE AND GOLD HOUSE. From Thursday until after the big game on Sunday, join us at the Elephant and Castle on Burrard for your Blue Bomber Headquarters. Great Food & Beverage specials, Blue Bomber Alumni, the Bomber Store. Entrance fee is $5 and space is limited. $10 if your wearing Green!
Heh, the Bombers have 2 parties and all the Als can do is one 3 hour long one. I guess somebody has to pick up their slack.
See ya at the Castle!
Sounds like TD-MB is the one night party and Bomber House is the place to meet and greet people all weekend long.
Entrance fee is $5 per visit and space is limited however $10 if your wearing Green.Ha Ha !!
