    Information on the 2013 Fanfest:

    The Calgary Stampeders’ annual fan event – Fanfest, presented by Nissan – will be held on Saturday, May 25 at McMahon Stadium. In the event of inclement weather, the fun will be moved indoors to the Foothills Football Dome.

    Fanfest begins with a free pancake breakfast in the East parking lot of McMahon Stadium at 8:30 a.m. The stadium gates open at 9:30 a.m., with fun-filled family activities being held on the field. Stampeders players and coaches will be in attendance to sign autographs and answer questions from fans.

    Fanfest is an exciting event in its own right but the anticipation is heightened by the fact it signals training camp and the start of the new Canadian Football League season are just around the corner.

    Unfortunately this year I will be out of town. However, I highly recommend attending the Fan Fest. Went last year for the first time and found the event very family orientated and if you are a fan of the team, the interaction with the players was excellent.

    I still am unable to walk although I will be starting to weight bear this weekend BUT it will be feather weight bearing... Like basically just using my foot to steady me as I walk. Getting around on crutches for any distance small or great is not easy. So I may or may not go...

    Had an awesome time today, weather held out and the kids ran around like maniacs.

    Thanks to the Stamps for putting on another great Fanfest - can't wait for the season to kick off now.

    It was a great day. Got 2 of the Stamps best QB's to sign my new Stamps hat. DD was surprised I wanted the cool hat signed, Huff said the same thing. Got some pics with quick 6, old Ralphy, Jibari Arthur. That was my first time on the Stamps turf. Got all kinds of Stamps gear, picked up the new season tickets. Awesome day and Cate loved it and is pumped for the season. She will be getting a Stamps jersey and I think she may have forgotten about her beloved Ti-Cats. Thank you Stamps for putting such a great day.
