This well-loved tradition of SCIJ’s will take place on the Tuesday February 8th.

Unfortunately, provincial liquor regulations compounded with luggage weight restrictions and heightened airport security is making the transportation of liquids into Canada an ongoing challenge for the Organizing Committee.

Alberta provincial regulations require that all wine, beer and spirits to be consumed in public MUST BE PURCHASED in Alberta. This means if you bring alcohol directly from your home country or it is purchased at any other point of sale outside of Alberta, it cannot be admitted at Nations Night. That requires us – and you – to plan ahead. It is your responsibility to ensure you have placed and paid for your order by January 20th, 2011.

Central supplier

To make the process as smooth as possible, we encourage everyone to follow the following steps established by the Organizing Committee.

1. The largest provincial supplier Willow Park Wines and Spirits of Calgary has been commissioned to prepare orders ahead of time. They have more than 18,000 brand names from around the world on stock.

2. While they have a large selection of liquor, there may be some countries for which they do not hold inventory. As an alternative, we would kindly invite you to select another selection which most closely matches ones found in your country. You may also choose the option of ‘Adopting a Country’ of a non-participating nation such as ‘Chili or Mexico’ as examples for illustration.
