Does anyone know if there is a published list of where else around Manitoba they are bringing the Grey Cup?

Sounded like this was part of a Princess Auto thing?  I could be wrong.

Im also under the impression. That some of the "bigger" name players have some personal sponsorship agreements. And you may see it a some random car or truck or something dealer. With the cup and said player. Best use some of the players facebook or Insta/Twitter accounts etc..

All I heard was the burning hotel in Kenora with the GC and players in it. No one got hurt and according to Rush the Cup got out to unscathed.

I went. The crowd was small but gave a good vibe. The Grey Cup in rural areas is a great way to promote the C F L to people who otherwise would not follow it. I think they found a few future fans. Kudos to John Rush for all the legwork. The Cup also made a detour to the Nursing home where Cec Luining's ( 4 Grey Cups) widow lives.

Cec Luining AKA The Selkirk Milkman.  Another one of the Bombers' great Canadian Players from the late '50's to early '60's.
