853 Bayview Rd Strathmore Alberta Independent Meet: Southern Alberta License plate meet and BBQ. 853 Bayview Rd, Strathmore, Alberta, Canada. 11:00 am until whenever. Small displays are welcome and tables available for sellers at the price of $10.00 (mostly just to cover Delicious Alberta meat costs). Lots of street parking if you plan on a camper or truck stay. Anywhere in town is a $7.00 cab ride so if you like beer like I do then you will be needing a hotel, another option is the camp ground which is within staggering distance. We will be doing a silent auction for charity also, my idea is to have a plate donated from different attendees, it does not have to be a fancy one. people will write down their bid on the paper for each plate and at the end of the day we will see who's plate got the most money. Then the "winner" who got the best bid take's home 80% of all the combined plates and the charity gets the remaining 20%.(percentage may vary as this is a work in progress and any suggestions welcome) Charity to be decided by vote of hands. (Children's wish, Veteran's, etc.) If you cannot attend you may donate a plate, you do not have to be here to win. For more detail's please call or text Derrick Andersen 1-403-669-6331 email:
