Official BC / Alberta Meet & Greet 2013 Thread

Here it is Guy's & Gal's the dates for the BC/Alberta Meet & Greet 2013 will be August 17, 18 & 19 in Revelstock BC. We will return to the Hillcrest Hotel for another year. Now that the event has been expanded to two nights and three days, the added day will provide us the opportunity for a cool day trip to Nakusp Hot Springs for a BBQ and a dip in the hot springs.

Host Hotel is Hillcrest Mountain resort in Revelstoke BC Currently fully booked but feel free to call as you never know when something will free up can call 1 (855) 837 3320 and mention you are with the Camaro Group to get our group booking rate

Back up accommodations are available a short 10 minute walk away at the Revelstoke KOA they have camping cabins and since you wont spend too much time in your room anyway can be nice on the budget 1 (800) 562 3905
