*Giveaway* Guessing Game

Since it's been a positively boring week for anyone who's visited my blog, I figured I'd spice things up a bit and get you all back on board with me (*wink).

So here's the contest... It's gonna take a little effort. Guess where I'm going this weekend.

Okay, I'll give you a couple hints:
- I am going with Pat (it's more his thing than mine), but we will be sleeping separately.
- The event falls under the following categories: fun, loud, exhausting, refreshing, ministry, young people, old people, pastors, walking, standing, loud, fun.
- I live in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.
- We will be travelling less than 2 hours (or less than 200 km, or less than 120 mi).
- I will not be getting ANY quiet time the entire weekend!

I apologize if this is too vague for my American friends, but if I give any more hints my local friends will have a big advantage.

The prize - a CD I purchase while I'm (there). Maybe some other cool paraphernalia too, depending how much money I have to spend on food.

This contest is open to all peeps from all nations (I can't imagine shipping on a CD to anywhere in the world can be THAT much). The winner will be, of course, the one who guesses correctly. OR, if no one is correct, whoever comes up with the most creative idea. OR, if no one comments, the winner will be ME! :) (Sorry mom, you are disqualified from the guessing. Your prize is spending an exhausting weekend with 5 little monkeys.)


  1. I am a completely out of the loop American on the east coast...

    My guess, as an effective google user is omething called, "Youth Conference".

    Youth Conference is a large scale three-day Christian event held in numerous places around the world. The originating event, YC Alberta, is held in Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta. YC is managed by Extreme Dream Productions, a division of Extreme Dream Ministries.

    YC is unique from similar Christians music festivals like Creationfest in that attendees must buy tickets to attend all main speakers and concerts, not just the ones they choose.

    YC Alberta 2007 was held on May 25-27, 2007 at Rexall Place.
