Wrap-up on the 3rd Annual AjaxPickering.ca St. Patrick's Day Event
Just over a mere month ago the staff at AjaxPickering.ca was madly finishing the final preparations on what was expected to be a very big St. Patrick’s Day Event.Little did we know that almost a month after the date we would be finally wrapping the post-mortem on what has turned out to be the largest St. Patrick’s Day Event hosted by AjaxPickering.ca to date:
Happy 3rd Annual Post-St. Patrick’s Day with AjaxPickering.ca!
With March 17th, 2012 falling on a Saturday, it meant that our St. Patrick’s Day Crew had an early morning start.Not to worry; not a single complaint was uttered when it was suggested that we meet at 8:30 a.m. at the Fox and Fiddle Mansion, Pickering, in order to have our call-to-arms meeting over a traditional Irish breakfast, done buffet style.On bellies full and happy of eggs, bacon, cornbeef hash, beans, fresh fruit and, of course, coffee (LOT’S of coffee) marching orders were handed out.It was going to be a full day – 9 pubs, 15 hours and only 1 photography crew, 1 videography crew and 1 anchor.
Over 1,500 photos and more than 30 hours of film later, AjaxPickering.ca wishes to extend a warm and heartfelt thank you to all who participated in the event.If you missed the link on the front page of AjaxPickering.ca for the event photos, you can simply click here to see what an awesome time was had by all (this link for the 2012 event will be active until we release the lineup for 2013):
