Smile GKTW Event: Nova Scotia Meet is a GO! Aug 8-10, 2014

Our third Nova Scotia Dis meet for Give Kids the World is happening August 8-10, 2014. We're still, of course, in the planning stages but wanted to let you know the dates so you can plan accordingly to come join us!

We'll be starting a facebook event page very soon and will be looking for some tentative numbers as we start contacting venues.

Mark your calendars to enjoy "Adventures by Nova Scotians"!

Here’s our itinerary for our Meet; keep in mind we’ll be tweaking times. We'll also be adding more details about the different parts as we go along...

Friday:
Lunch at Chicken Burger
Possible optional “field trip” to Peggy’s Cove
Supper at Wharf Wraps (home of the crab wonton!!)
Possible “Ghost Walk”?

Saturday:
Lunch at a winery in Wolfville
Field trip to Blomidon Provincial Park (think highest tides in the world!) with munchies
Supper on your own
Sunset Pirate Cruise on Halifax Harbour

Sunday:
Main event at Springfield Lake Recreation Cantre, Middle Sackville
(silent auction, penny auction, food and much more!)
We hope to have an informal get-together afterwards, perhaps around a bonfire..

Monday:
Possible Field trip to Lunenburg and of course another stop at Chicken Burger

Here's a little teaser for our Saturday field trip plans!

We'll be heading out of the city for part of the day to show off some of the Annapolis Valley and the Bay of Fundy -

Lunch at Luckett's Vineyard
http://www.luckettvineyards.com/

They have a world class chef and because we're a large group we won't be ordering off the regular menu so don't let that page scare you.

After lunch we're going over to Blomidon Provincial Park to explore the ocean floor as the world's highest tides recede! We'll also have some afternoon munchies there, picnic style...

https://www.novascotiaparks.ca/parks/blomidon.asp

Supper will be on your own, and we can make lots of suggestions for you, but make sure you aren't late for our final event of the night! A sunset cruise on a tall ship! Pirate attire optional but strongly suggested!!!!

http://www.mtcw.ca/TourSailing.php

The cruise will definitely be one of those dates that we need to know numbers for well in advance, so once we get a little farther into our planning and officially open up registration we hope to have firm pricing on the meal at Luckett's and the Cruise so you'll be able to pay for that in advance and have that taken care of before you come. One less thing to worry about!

Dreaming of August and warmer temperatures!

Just wanted to say that this was a major fun event last year. The Halifax area is quite nice, with lots of interesting history and scenic beauty. But perhaps the best part was all the great people we met.

Val & I drove from Plymouth MA to Halifax NS last year and it took about 12 hours. Along the way we saw some very nice scenery. We spent 2 nights in Halifax at the Marriott Harborfront hotel which allowed us to tour the city easily when there weren't events going on.

If it weren't for our move to Florida this year, and some conflicting plans on our schedule, we would be back in a minute.

The Nova Scotia team has secured the Marriott Courtyard as it's host hotel.
Tell em that you are with the Nova Scotia Dis Meet. Rates are $159.00 and a few more bucks off if you have AAA.

How kid friendly will the weekend activities be? I understand the winery probably is not. Are the other things ok to bring children on? The pirate cruise and things? Thanks so much!

Every event is kid friendly, including the winery, which is at lunch time and they have a kid's menu. Click this link which was earlier in this thread http://www.luckettvineyards.com/

The pirate-themed harbour tour may be a bit late for very little ones but we planned all events with the whole family in mind.

It would be awesome if you could make it. Let us know if you have any questions about anything.
