Contest winners take in big haul from The Ultimate Storage War

Local radio stations give three lucky winners over $10,000 in prizes

Mountain FM and 103.5 the Bridge hosted The Ultimate Storage Wars on Saturday

Mountain FM and 103.5 the Bridge hosted The Ultimate Storage Wars on Saturday, July 13 at West Kootenay Self Storage with three winners taking home over $10,000 in prizes.

The event gathered 100 participants through a call-in contest, where contestants had to be caller six to claim a key which may or may not grant entry into one of three storage lockers loaded with merchandise from participating sponsors.

Registration started at 10 a.m. and by 12:30 p.m. everyone had enjoyed a barbecue (including cake) from Save On Foods.

With a party atmosphere supplied by Nelson musicians Patrick Bonin (bass), Lee Campere (drums) Marty Carter (electronic wind instrument) and Shane Alaric (guitar) excitement slowly built up as contestants were lined up to try their keys.

As key after key failed to unlock the storage units, excitement grew even more until lockers valued at $3,550, $3,950 and $4,850 were opened by Keli Campbell of Balfour, Don Carlgren of Robson and Al Chatten of Nelson respectively.

Sponsors of the event were West Kootenay Self Storage, Maglios, Playmor Power Products, Endless Adventure and Save On Foods.
