We're Puzzled, Where's Colin - Day Four

Here's is the fourth of five puzzle pieces for "We're Puzzled, Where's Colin" for a chance to win tickets to Marianas Trench in Moose Jaw!

After posting the third piece on Wednesday, we had some more correct guesses come in, so people are starting to figure out the local landmark already. All of the correct guesses are being put into Monday's draw for two pairs of tickets to the Mariana Trench concert at Mosaic Place on February 3rd. If you've already guessed, but think you may have been wrong, you can try again for a chance to get into the draw.

Email your guesses to [email protected] and watch for the last puzzle piece here tomorrow!

We're Puzzled, Where's Colin - Day Three (Plus, Hear from Marianas Trench Drummer Ian Casselman!)

Here's the third puzzle piece for "We're Puzzled, Where's Colin" for a chance to see Marianas Trench in Moose Jaw!

After we posted the second piece on Tuesday, we received a few more guesses. At least one of those guesses was correct, so someone will have a chance to win these tickets.

If you think you know the local landmark where Colin is in the picture, email us at [email protected]. Even if you guessed already and think you may have been incorrect, you can send another email and try again. All of the correct guesses will be put into Monday's draw for one of two pairs of tickets to Marianas Trench at Mosaic Place on February 3rd!

Meanwhile, Teagan Witko of Mix 103 in Moose Jaw recently chatted with Marianas Trench drummer Ian Casselman about their upcoming show in the Friendly City, and you can hear that interview on their blog!

We're Puzzled, Where's Colin - Day Two

Here's the second puzzle piece for "We're Puzzled, Where's Colin" for a chance to win tickets to Marianas Trench in Moose Jaw on February 3rd!

We posted the first piece on Monday, and got a couple of guesses already, but both were incorrect, so we're still looking for our first official entry. If you think you know which local landmark is in the photo, email your guess to [email protected]. All of the correct guesses will go into a draw for a chance to win one of two pairs of tickets to the Marianas Trench concert at Mosaic Place.

Think you can figure it out now?

Puzzle Piece 2

We're Puzzled, Where's Colin - Day One

Marianas Trench is coming to Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw on February 3rd! We gave away some Beat the Box Office tickets when the show was first announced in November, but if you missed out on those, we're giving you another chance to win!

We've got two more pairs of tickets to the show, and we're playing "We're Puzzled, Where's Colin" for a chance to win them! (We tried the contest this fall for the Marianas Trench concert in Medicine Hat that wound up being cancelled.) Every day this week, we'll post a puzzle piece which, when put together, shows a photo of Colin Powers at a local landmark.

If you think you know where Colin is located, email us at [email protected] with your guess. We'll put all the correct guesses in a draw, and then next Monday, two lucky people will each win two tickets to see Marianas Trench live in the Friendly City!

And now, here is your first puzzle piece... Think you can solve it?
