Update September 26, 2013
We will be meeting outside (in the beautiful sunshine at 3:45 pm to 4:00 pm - for those who can make it at this time). The entrance is between Hall A and the Corral (this is East of the Coca-Cola Stage).
For those that are coming later to the event, I have sent out some more contact info to you as well. Also if you are coming later, you can look for a larger crowd (in a larger crowd inside the venue as well - lol). We will do our best to try and meet with everyone at this event.
Hope to see ya there!
Come on out and enjoy the Alberta Beer Festival.
