Heading into Manitoba Cup, MODS as an organization had been looking to enhance their summer events with live entertainment and an upgrade in music & experience... through our good friends at Torque (thank you John Heim) we were introduced to Kevin Repay who helps to lead the Village Idiots, their ventures (be they artists, Live at the Roslyn, music festivals etc.) and business. Kevin has been integral in helping create this partnership and now looks to help MODS with our first shared event this Augusts.
Manitoba Cup is using a new format this year... and breaking for a 2 hour lunch break so we can party while everyone is at IJL Ultimate Park in place of getting together at the end of the day. We hope this will allow all teams a chance to meet up and hang out centrally at Disc Central and the Torque Beer Gardens. There will be games and entertainment and now we can officially say - The Village Idiots have been contracted to support the event with one hour of live music (artist(s) to be named next week). The performance will last for the middle hour of the break and allow everyone some time to sing, clap and dance along with our friends and community!
Hopefully this is the first step in increasing our event presence and entertainment and something we can build off of for the 2020 season!
