What you need to know if you come on SATURDAY only

Updated Thursday June 27th, 2019 at 4:25 PM

If you plan on only attending Sabbath service, PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING:

COME EARLY: CAREFULLY PLAN THE TIME YOU WILL SPEND TRAVELLING

  • Service starts at 9:30 a.m., God willing, under the MAIN TENT.
  • Starting from the La Fontaine tunnel in Montreal, plan:
    • 2 hours of travel (including a 10 minute pit stop) +
    • Time to PARK your vehicle (5 to 15 minutes depending on attendance and busyness when you arrive)
    • Time to WALK to the main tent (1 to 15 minutes depending where you will be parked)
  • For the people coming in from Montreal, please take into account the ADDITIONAL TIME IT WILL TAKE YOU TO GET TO THE LA FONTAINE TUNNEL!
    • Ex: Leaving from Pierrefonds or West-Island? Add at least 30 minutes
  • Bring comfortable walking shoes (or rain boots ?!) to walk the distance between the parking lot and the main tent.
  • Those coming in by car before 9:15 AND PLANNING ON LEAVING THEIR CAR UNTIL THE END OF THE EVENING PROGRAM will be able to park their car right next to the main tent (first come, first serve).

ITINERARY

PARKING

  • COME BEFORE 9:15 if you want to park next to the main tent if there’re still places available (first come, first serve), BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR CAR THERE UNTIL THE END OF THE EVENING PROGRAM. Again, the cars parked next to the main tent cannot circulate on the campsite during the day.
  • You CANNOT park near the main tent if you plan on leaving
    • After workship service
    • Right after lunch
    • Before the evening program
  • People coming in after 9:15 will have to park their vehicle at least 500 meters away from the main tent. A few electric karts will be available BUT SINCE THEY ARE IN LIMITED SUPPLY; you might have to wait several minutes depending of traffic. It’s therefore preferable to walk those 500 meters to and back from the main tent. Bring comfortable shoes.
  • A few allocated spaces will be reserved near the main tent at all times for people with reduced mobility (with disable parking permit) but you must be accompanied by a guardian in order to move your vehicle if planning to leave earlier.

AFTERNOON AND EVENING PICNIC

  • CHAIRS
    • Additional chairs will be available but we cannot guaranty that there will be enough for everyone.
    • For safety reasons, most of the chairs will be bound together under the main tent.
    • Bring your chairs if you do not want to have to picnic on the ground because of the limited number of chairs
  • TABLES
    • There will be tables WITHOUT CHAIRS available but we cannot guarantee that there will be enough for everyone.
    • Bring a large SPREAD or BLANKET in case you have to picnic without tables and/or chairs
  • Remember that THERE IS NO drinking water to wash, rinse, etc.
  • We will be IN NATURE: The sun might scorch (wear a hat and sunscreen), the rain might pour (bring an umbrella and rain boots).
  • There will be mosquitoes but we do not yet know if there will be many.
  • By God’s grace, as there are many trees, you should be able to find a spot in the shade.

TRANSLATION

NO PETS

  • No dogs, cats or pets of any kind
