Over 30 exhibitors will be in store to showcase their products;
various clinics and workshops will take place through-out the
day; lots of free swag will be given-away, and get a 10% off
coupon for a single transaction (to be used that day only). You
can also score some pretty sweet deals at the GearSwap, or bring
your old gear and get some cash for it. Awesome.
The ACC, along with several other other organizations, will have
a booth setup to introduce people to who we are, and what we
do. Rob, Willa, Paul, Soleil, Raz, Jason & Ian
will be at the booth at various times through-out the day, and
we would love for you to come say hello! - Depending on when
you come, there may or may not be doughnuts!
