Wow. We can’t believe how many people showed up to registration last night! And if we do say so ourselves, for over 900 dancers registered, it ran pretty smoothly (even with a few challenges with hard to see signage). Congrats to the lucky dancers who snagged a red cowboy hat! Below is some information that you’ll find useful for the first day of SDCCS2018. Best wishes to all dancers competing today!
If you still need to register, you can pick up your registration package in the Imperial Ballroom 1, 2, 3 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Admission sales will move to in front of the glass doors where the competitions are taking place in the Telus Convention Centre (from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, and 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm). You can also still sign up for your banquet table by the registration area, but only from 8:00 am to 11:00 am.
For the first day of SDCCS2018 we have some amazing things lined up, from pin exchanges, to line dancers, to trophy events and the always impressive and inspirational choreography competition. We will also get things going later in the day with the official kick off – the Opening Ceremonies! Details of the day can be found below, online, and in your program.
Be a part of SDCCS2018 by taking part in the Opening Ceremonies
The Opening Ceremonies take place at 6:30 pm – Exhibition Hall C, D, E – we would like to invite all dancers to take part. Come and join the Provincial Representatives from across Canada, and the Calgary Police Service Pipe Band, in a parade through the streets of downtown Calgary!
If you are a dancer and want to join, meet at 5:15 pm in the lobby of the Telus Convention Centre (Stephen Avenue doors) wearing your kilt and running shoes. You will parade through the streets and then join the Reps on stage to kick off the ceremony! There will be seats reserved for you to enjoy the rest of the show. Bring along a little flag from your Province or Country if you like and don’t forget your phone for selfies!! Be sure to tag your photos with #SDCCS2018 #Elevate2Excellence
