Things To Do In Calgary, Alberta Instead Of Amway WWDB Spring Leadership 2013
This year Amway World Wide Dream Builders is holding WWDB Amway Spring Leadership in Calgary, Alberta May 3 – 5, 2013 at the Calgary Stampede Corral. Now I grew up watching John Wayne movies so I know what a corral is. The place where all the cows are herded and its got a fence all around it. My main thing about being inside a corral where a bunch of cows were is you gotta watch what you might be stepping in! Pretty typical of any Amway meetings they’re all full of shit. But a reader clued me in that this corral is an indoor arena and whether or not cows are in there is unknown but we do know they’ll be tons of shit there!
Keeping with my theme of finding better things to do than spend $125 for a ticket to World Wide Dream Builders Spring Leadership 2013 going to an Amway function to get brainwashed I have to say Calgary was nearly as tough a town to find things to do as Spokane was. Not too many attractions that aren’t seasonal or out of town. It looks like Calgary has parks and festivals and rodeos but with time constraints, none that are happening May 3 to 5 2013. Calgary is also one of those Spring Leadership cities that Amway expects a bunch of fucking dumb asses to show up so they hold it over 3 days instead of 2. The slightly smarter Amway IBO’s are given permission to attend Spring Leadership in Honolulu, DC, Denver, or Minneapolis because some upline Amway asshole has decided they can “get it” in 2 days in those cities instead of 3 days in Las Vegas, Spokane, and Calgary.
Calgary Tower - Its open daily 9am to 9pm. The description says from the top you can see the city, the Rockies, and the prairies. Sounds a little dull to me. Tickets cost $15.24. What the fuck kind of price is that? Why not $15 or $16 or $15.25? Normally I would say different prices for different age groups but these prices are so fucking bizarre I have to put them down.. Over 65 years $13.33. Between 13 and 17 $10.48. Ages 4 to 12 $6.67. Then their webpage says you got to put 5% tax on top of that. What the fuck are they charging tax on something like this? You get on an elevator ride up and look at the city and the prairie? I couldn’t find any twofer coupons. At least in Las Vegas the two towers cost about the same price but has 2 for 1 coupons everywhere so $15 for 2 people is a better deal. Go to Spring Leadership in Las Vegas as long as you’re not actually attending the Amway brainwash conference. The view from their towers is a lot more interesting!
The Calgary Zoo. Yup, I have found yet another zoo in a city where Amway WWDB is holding Spring Leadership! The zoo here costs a few bucks more than other city zoos at $22.50. Maybe it costs more to feed animals in Canada? Lower prices for different age groups. At least they don’t have the bizarre penny pincher pricing at the zoo that the tower has. But they still want to charge you tax on top of it.
Glenbow Museum. Some people on Trip Advisor say its a nice museum. Costs $14, slightly less for other age groups. At least this one includes the tax in your admission! I’d still go to the zoo over the museum.
Big Rock Brewery - Seeing as how I’ve found other beer breweries in other towns offering free tours and tasting I decided to check this one out. First thing I found out is they want you to cough up $25 for tour and tasting! $35 if you do the night tour. Holy shit! Did they hear a bunch of ambots were going to be in town and decide to rip them off seeing as how they’re already used to being ripped off by Amway? So I’d say stick with where you can get the freebie beer tours and tasting. But the name intrigued me. Did this Albertan have a big rock in his yard he had to figure out what to do with? The website gave a little more info and apparently there’s this big rock out in a field a few miles south of Calgary that was deposited there by a glacier and people go out there and look at it. Yup. Life doesn’t get much more exciting in Calgary than driving around looking for rocks out in fields!
No offense to anyone from Calgary but it looks like the biggest hit with tourists would be the highway heading out of town!
If you’re married to an ambot try to steer him to Honolulu or Las Vegas for Spring Leadership where at least you’ll have stuff to do while he’s out being brainwashed by the cult leaders.
Here’s some more key words to help Amway IBO’s find their way because the assholes in their upline don’t help out with this top secret information. And because there are a bunch of dumb ass Amway ambots that think they have the power to turn back time and put this into their Google searches: Amway WWDB Spring Leadership 2012! And one more for the Amway asshole who is thinking ahead to next year! Amway WWDB Spring Leadership 2014. Yup ambots are so fucking brainwashed by their Amway cult leaders they have no clue what year it is!
