Labour Day 2018 at the PNE VDLC Affiliates, With Labour Day only a few weeks away we are getting excited about our first Labour Day at the PNE. We want to be sure logistics are taken care of to ensure a successful event and positive experience for all attendees. This letter will describe how we can work together to ensure this. This year’s Labour Day event will take place in the Pacific Coliseum and within the PNE grounds. To gain access to the rally at Pacific Coliseum and our private picnic area in the PNE, a wristband will be required. It is important the appropriate individual(s) in your local read this letter and ensure action is taken so your members can access this event without issue on September 3. WRISTBANDS & PNE ACCESS The first step to ensuring a positive experience for you and your members is to provide quick and hassle-free entry to the Labour Day PNE events. Please ensure that your members attending arrive between 8:30 and 10:00 am (ie. BEFORE the rally). Wristbands will be required to gain access to the rally, PNE, private picnic area, and community-partner booth zone. All wristbands must be picked up BEFORE the rally. We will provide affiliates with a promo code for online purchase of discounted wristbands. If the local is purchasing wristbands for your members, you will receive a pdf containing the associated individually barcoded tickets. You will have to distribute these tickets to your members so they can present a printed or electronic copy of the purchased ticket to Guest Services at the Pacific Coliseum between 8:30 and 10:00 am on September 3 outside of the rally to receive a wristband. The PNE will scan tickets at the gate, so each barcode can only be used once. The PNE cannot assist with lost, forgotten or duplicated tickets. Friends and families are welcome! Guests accompanying members to the rally will be able to purchase discounted wristbands & ride passes online using the same promo code and must also present a printed or electronic copy of their purchased wristband/ticket to Guest Services at the Pacific Coliseum between 8:30 and 10:00 am on September 3 outside of the rally to receive their wristband. COMMUNITY-PARTNER BOOTH ZONE We invite your local to set up an information booth in the private Community-Partner Zone. Affiliates must supply their own tents, tables, and chairs. If you are interested, please contact Michelle Livaja, event organizer at vdlclabourday@gmail.com. Information booth fee is $100.00 and will be assigned on a first-come basis as cheques are received. Mail to: VDLC, Suite 170 111 Victoria Drive, Vancouver, BC, V5L 4C4. COLISEUM RALLY 10:00 am The Rally starts at 10:00 am and ends before the PNE opens at 11:00 am to allow members to get into the PNE before the general public and avoid lineups. A WORD ON PROMO CODES The Promo Code provided for discounted tickets are for use ONLY by the VDLC, affiliates, and friends, their members and guests, as part of our agreement with the PNE. They are not intended for public use. The PNE monitors social media and will cancel any codes distributed publicly or posted online. Therefore, please do not post your code online or share it publicly in any fashion. We look forward to seeing you there, In solidarity, Stephen von Sychowski President
