The main prize is a two-night stay at the Dean on Nimpo Retreat Wilderness Inn with flight provided by Tweedsmuir Air Services. Second prize is a GoPro camera, third prize is a wine cooler and there are lots of other prizes including platters and pitchers from Boston Pizza.

Bowling is free and all of the bowlers are treated to free pizza courtesy of Panago.
