Day 4: Optional Field Day

If you have time to spend an extra day in the Annapolis Valley here is a suggested itinerary for your Saturday. Marcel and other members of the CCA will be at the Guzzle and View Park in the morning for informal presentations. Costs for these options are not part of the CCA registration and these are only suggestions. Trust us, it’s worth spending another day in the Annapolis Valley.

We look forward to seeing you at COGS.
