I haven't been out to Edmonton in awhile. Maybe I should go for a drive.

Lots of top notch SPS available? I'd never get there before 2 pm though - all the good stuff will be gone!

Yes :)

New owners?

Owners are still the same.

Company was rebranded with expanded operations from what I understand.

SPS is such a waste of time lol...

SPS is the ONLY kind of coral! All that other stuff is just flubber!

Don't make me pull out my pitchfork...

But in all seriousness, there will be free food, who needs SPS? #amirite #truth
