Maximize and Enjoy

Saturday the 4th, instead of lazing the day away with a post-awards glow (you could be one of the lucky winners), you can choose to peruse Upper Canada Mall across from your Hotel for gifts to appease your loved ones, or, take in a day excursion (9:30am -5pm) with sightseeing, lunch, river boat cruise, visits to unique sights followed by a visit to a popular local brewery on the way back to your hotel.

The whole day is made even better with you being accompanied by leading Lassoers who you can glean even more useful insights from. Exact excursion details to be determined based on numbers signed up.
