Weather not a factor in delivering a one-two summer punch

With the weather still not listening to Nelsonites’ pleas for sun and warmth, what better way to stave off cabin fever than to spend some time planning your adventures for the warmer days ahead.

Using the new edition of the Kootenay Rockies Backroad Mapbook might be one way, or taking in the Kaslo Jazz Festival might be another.

Either way, The Nelson Daily can help you, and it doesn’t depend on the weather. There is still time to enter one of our two contests — win a Backroad Mapbook or two free day passes to Kaslo Jazz — by signing up as a member of our Facebook site.

Check out the two contests below …

Want to win a copy of the new Kootenay Rockies Mapbook edition?

The Nelson Daily, reaching 26,000 Nelson and area folks per month — and over 50,000 West Kootenay folk through the regional Lone Sheep network — wants to put a copy of the Kootenay Rockies Backroad Mapbook in your hands for Father’s Day.

The contest is simple: sign up for The Nelson Daily Facebook site as a member before Father’s Day and then email us (editor@thenelsondaily.com) to enter your name into a draw to win one of the map books. Those who are already members of the site are automatically entered into the draw.

Win two passes (good for any day) to the Kaslo Jazz Festival

Now in its 20th year, the festival (July 29-31) has ignited the delight of a worldwide audience, with USA Today calling it one of the “Top 10 places to get in tune, be outdoors.”

The contest is simple: sign up for The Nelson Daily Facebook site as a member before Canada Day — you have to be a Facebook member — and then email us (editor@thenelsondaily.com) to enter your name into a draw to win two passes (good for any day) to the festival by the water’s edge in Kaslo.

Hosted by CBC Radio’s Saturday Night Blues’ Holger Peterson, the festival features David Gogo, Dan Mangan, the Jim Byrnes Band, Mark Hummel, Mr. Something Something and Delhi to Dublin.
