Come and join us for an afternoon of books, games, food and great conversation.  Meet your fellow bloggers from all across Ontario and finally put faces to blogs and twitter handles you frequently come across online.  Get a chance to win prizes, meet special guests, network and have an afternoon of great bookish fun.

Ticket prices are $35.00 and are available at: http://ontarioblogsquad2.eventbrite.ca/

Included in the ticket price is a three-course meal with complimentary coffee and tea.  Taxes and gratuity are also included. You can download the menu here.

Hope to see you there!




FAQ

Q. The event was free last year, so why are you charging for it this year?
A. The simple answer is the venue.  One of the biggest concerns we heard from attendees last year was the event space.  You wanted something bigger and better that provided more room to move about and mix and mingle.  Well we heard you.  This year we have a bigger and better venue and as such, there is a cost that goes along with it.

Q. What does the $35.00 ticket price include?
A. The $35.00 ticket price includes admission to the event, a three course meal, complimentary coffee or tea, and taxes and gratuity.

Q. Is there an official program of events?
A. While there are some things scheduled to take place at the event, there isn't an official schedule like you would see at a professional conference.  The meet-up is still very informal allowing attendees to mix and mingle freely.

Q. Will there be any special guests and if so, who are they?
A. Yes there will be special guests.  But as for who they are, well that is a surprise.  In the weeks leading up to event there will be some teasers and hints posted both here on the blog and on twitter.  Make sure you are following @BlogOntario on twitter for all the latest news and updates on the event.

Q. Tickets are sold out and I want to go.  What do I do?
A. If tickets for the event sell out, and you would still like to attend, please sign up for the waiting list through the ticket sales page.  We will considering opening up more space at the event, but in order to do so, we need to know how many more spaces we would need to accommodate.  In order to do that, we need you to sign up for the waiting list at:  http://ontarioblogsquad2.eventbrite.ca/

Q. Is there a vegetarian option for the menu?
A. Yes, there is.  The vegetarian option will consist of the following:

Linguine
Tossed with baby spinach, Kalamata olives, Feta cheese, red onions, plum tomatoes and artichokes with
fresh basil olive oil.


If you require the vegetarian menu option, please email Nicole at ontarioblogsquad@gmail.com by September 1, 2012.
