Thursday Night Special Event
August 15, 2013
Delegates will gather in the Delta Hotel Ballroom for the start of the "Rally in the Alley".
Colourful "Rally in the Alley" bandanas are presented to delegates,
and the crowd is split up into two or three groups, depending on number

George Street led by a travelling minstrel.

When all bellies are full, the pub crawl commences! Kin teams travel (note:
gets more difficult as the night goes on) to different bars on George Street.
Newfoundland traditions await at each bar: Take part in traditional

a Sailor” And, the official part of the evening, you get to become an honourary
Newfoundlander! Yes, that’s right! A Screech In for all delegates.

Following the pub crawl,
