Michael Wowk of Sprucevalley Carriers and Harman Shoker of The Harman Group (HGC) both won tickets to the 104th Grey Cup at BMO Field in Toronto this past Sunday through TransCore Link Logistics’ (TransCore) Loadlink Load Posting Contest. Both gentlemen were rooting for the Calgary Stampeders.

Wowk, from Strathmore, Alberta, claimed the grand prize and was awarded airfare and hotel accommodations in addition to a pair of 100-level seats. “It was the first Grey Cup I’ve ever been to so it was awesome. The fans were incredible… the whole experience was 100%,” said Wowk.

Shoker in Caledon, Ontario also expressed his enthusiasm after attending the game with a friend: “Honestly it was amazing. The environment was spectacular. The seats were amazing as well…you can see everything.  I know they just revamped the stadium as well so that was a really big bonus…Going to the Grey Cup was just crazy,” said Shoker. He added that the pop-rock band OneRepublic’s performance at the half-time show kept everyone on their toes.

TransCore, leader of trucking technology solutions in Canada, is always looking for ways to not only connect with their customers, but find fun and unique ways to give back to them.
