Gear Hub Summer Challenge

If you've been into summer challenges this year, including the Trail to Ale by Fernie Brewing Company or the Fernie Mountain Bike Club's Little Ripper Challenge, look no further as there is a new kid in town. Gear Hub, a sports shop in downtown Fernie, has picked their favourite Fernie Activities and turned it into a fun and active challenge... with a chance to win a $250 prize.

The GearHub Summer Challenge is nine classic Fernie summer activities in a “Bingo Card” format. The card can be picked up in-store at GearHub, or downloaded on their website.

So just how does it work? Just get outside and complete the activities listed on the bingo card. For every Bingo (three activities in a row) you complete, you get one entry into the draw for a $250 credit to GearHub’s online store. Complete all nine activities for an extra bonus entry.

To prove you have completed the activity in question, make sure you get a photo of yourself doing it then note the date on the line provided on the bingo card. To be eligible, activities must be completed between the challenge launch (Friday August 2) and the contest deadline (Friday August 30 at noon).

Bring your completed bingo card into the store before Friday August 30 at noon. You'll also need to bring the date stamped photos of you doing the activities in question to show our front staff. They will confirm you have completed the activities on the dates noted and you will be entered in the draw!

GearHub will draw the winner of the $250 online credit during their Anniversary Sale Event over the Labour Day long weekend (August 31-Sept 2). With only a few days to go, get out there, have fun and you can tag @gearhubsports on Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtag #gearhubchallenge and #ferniefix.
