Also, we are planning a Social Time beginning @ 5pm for those able to join. This will take place in the Great Room, on the main floor of the Walter C Koerner Centre (Lodge), which is also where our overnight Accommodations are. We will provide some appies and bubbly. You are welcome to bring along any other drinks of your choice for yourself or to share with the group. There is a tiny bar area in the Great Room, I understand there is a small refrigerator there and also a large refrigerator in the cafeteria in the lower level of the Koerner Centre building that we have access to.
Dinner is set for 6pm. This will take place at the Bentley Dining Hall, which is a separate building, a fairly short walking distance. For the ladies, if you plan on wearing high heels at the dinner, you may like to wear alternative foot wear when walking to the dining hall as there are some stairs and it isn’t a paved area. There is space at the dining hall entrance to do a shoe change if you want. We will provide dinner wine and some sparkling champaign to enjoy with your meal and there is also juice provided.
After dinner we will enjoy some fun times back at the Koerner Centre Lodge in the Great Room.
