PRINCE GEORGE — Hurry hard curling fans and get your ticket deposit for Prince George's bid to host the 2020 Tim Horton's Brier.

So far, 506 deposits have been purchased in just over two weeks.

Residents can buy their deposit for $20.20 to show their support for the bid.

The goal is to sell at least 2020 deposits by April 15.

The city has to submit its bid by June 30.

"We had a contact with our bid committee who was down at the Scotties tournament last week," said CN Centre manager, Glen Mikkelsen, "the message she brought back was [Curling Canada] would really like to see a minimum of 3000 or even 4000 tickets sold."

Those who buy a Brier deposit will be entered to win four tickets to Cirque du Soleil's CRYSTAL on April 25.

If Prince George doesn't win the 2020 Brier, the ticket deposits will be refunded.

The deposits will not be refunded if the bid is successful.

To buy your $20.20 deposit, go to Tickets North or by phone at 1-888-293-6613.
