Lessen the risk

Des­ig­nated driv­ers can win free tick­ets to up­com­ing fes­ti­vals

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

The Tyne Val­ley Oys­ter Fes­ti­val is part­ner­ing with the P.E.I. Liquor Con­trol Com­mis­sion on a con­test to en­cour­age the use of des­ig­nated driv­ers at the fes­ti­val and at Rock the Boat Mu­sicfest.

The Name Your Des­ig­nated Driver con­test will be run on the Rock the Boat Mu­sicfest Face­book page (www.face­book.com/rock­the­boat­fest). Once there, par­tic­i­pants can tag their des­ig­nated driver for them to have a chance to win a free ticket to the show.

“Both fes­ti­vals were a huge suc­cess last year and we wanted to look at how we could con­tinue to grow them, es­pe­cially Rock the Boat Mu­sicfest,” said Tyne Val­ley Oys­ter Fes­ti­val Chair Jeff Noye. “Pro­mot­ing re­spon­si­ble drink­ing is a crit­i­cal part of that growth strat­egy, so we thought we could en­cour­age des­ig­nated driv­ing by of­fer­ing a chance to win free tick­ets to those who take on that re­spon­si­bil­ity.”

RCMP in Prince County say they fully en­dorse the con­test. A news re­lease notes, “Mak­ing plans well in ad­vance of any event that you at­tend means that you know how you are trav­el­ling and it doesn't in­clude risk­ing your life or the life of oth­ers.”

The Tyne Val­ley Oys­ter Fes­ti­val runs July 29 to Aug. 2.

The Rock the Boat Mu­sicfest is Aug. 1.
