Read {vurb}, win an iPad

VURB goes regional, making its way throughout the West Kootenay

Check out VURB

The West Kootenay’s new monthly entertainment guide, {vurb}, hit newsstands this month and we here at the Castlegar News want to see people reading it.

Until the end of June, the Nelson Star and three sister papers in the West Kootenay are holding a contest asking readers to submit a photo of themselves with their nose in a copy of the new regional {vurb}.

To enter the contest, upload your photo at the Castlegar News contest page found at nelsonstar.com/contests. On June 30 we’ll randomly select one of the entrants to win an iPad Mini.

{vurb} is printed monthly and distributed to businesses throughout the West Kootenay. In Castlegar, you can find copies in hotel lobbies, downtown coffee shops, grocery and corner stores.

This month’s issue is the festival edition, featuring a two-page spread on the upcoming festival season. There’s also coverage of local concerts, theatre performances and art gallery exhibits, as well as book and movie reviews, reports on new technology, food and drink columns, and an extensive monthly event calendar.

To keep in touch with {vurb} between issues, follow the newspaper on Twitter, @KootenayVurb, or go to facebook.com/kootenayvurb.
