Keremeos Building Centre and Tim-Br Mart is sponsoring “Sharpshooter,”  a contest that could bring big benefits to the community.

Registered charities in the community that wins the big prize will receive a $60,000 donation to improve minor hockey and make a charitable contribution to the community. Four secondary prizes of $10,000 will also be awarded.

Sharpshooter is a skills based hockey shootout game that tests a player’s accuracy, power, speed and skill. Players compete on line and accumulate points. In addition they are encouraged to play multiple times.

The game is available in two versions – a facebook application on the web, and a mobile IOS, a downloadable application for the IPad, IPhone, IPod and ITouch.
