Over $100,000 worth of prizing is up for grabs across Canada play SharpShooter for your hockey association!
SharpShooter is a skills-based online game that focuses on the most universal hockey experience of all – shooting on a net. Players will progress from the basement to the big leagues all while playing for a good cause. The winning hockey association will get a piece of the $100,000 grand prize and have the opportunity to share their winnings with a registered children’s charity of their choice.
Building on the success of The World Junior Hockey Video Challenge, TIMBER MART recognized it was time for a change this year.
“With the World Juniors happening in Sweden this year, the logistics of sending a team that far just didn’t make sense,” says Jon Irwin Vice President, Retail Services for TIMBER MART. “We really wanted to do something new and different that could speak to both hockey players and fans across Canada and build on our continued support of minor hockey.”
Game players play for their local associations and work to accumulate points. At the end of the game play period, each associations’ points total is translated into ballots. Ten lucky associations will be randomly selected and asked to submit their pitch for how they would use the prize money for their association as well as outline the children’s charity they would partner up with. A grand prize winner will be selected via a judging panel based on a pre-determined set of criteria. Four secondary prizes will also be awarded.
The game is available now on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SharpShooterGame. The contest closes on January 7, 2014.
The Tim-Br Mart Group represents more than 700 independently-owned lumber, building material and hardware retailer/locations across Canada and The Finishing Store is a proud member.

There are various species and grades of mouldings available. Generally, wood mouldings are split into two categories: Clear and paint grade. Clear wood mouldings are made from solid lengths of high quality wood in many different species and grades. This type of product can be painted or stained. Paint grade wood trim consists of many small pieces of wood joined together into one long piece using adhesives and interlocking joinery. This material is referred to as “finger-jointed”. The pieces are good quality wood but they may vary in colour and grain. Usually this type of trim is painted, making it virtually indistinguishable from clear trim.
