Shed Party – Eastern Night, October 7, 2016

To host shed party for 800 delegates, you need a pretty big shed. And we’ve got one – Jack Byrne Arena in Torbay! We’ll have music, dart boards, horseshoe pits and a meal fit for any self-respecting suburban shed. And don’t worry about driving, we’ll have regularly scheduled buses running between downtown St. John’s and Jack Byrne Arena in Torbay.

So b’ys wear your dungarees and ball cap because we’re gonna have a time tonight!


MNL has a block of rooms at the Delta St. John’s, JAG Hotel and at the Extended Stay Hotel in St. John’s. Please contact hotels directly to see if rooms are still available.

This Pass admits the ticket holder into all evening functions including; opening ceremony, trade show, MNL shed party and the banquet. A Partners Pass is NOT the same offering as the Partners Program that was available in previous years. Cost is $200 per person. Partners Pass
