Dear Fight Laugh Feast Conference Attendees!
We are so excited to see you at the Politics of Six Day Creation Conference next week! We are looking forward to fellowshipping with old friends, meeting new friends, and hearing from some great speakers. As you get ready for your trip to the conference, here are some important details to keep in mind, so please do read to the end!
- Conference kick off: Veteran Fight Laugh Feast Conference goers will know that the conference normally kicks off with Beer and Psalms immediately following registration. This year, you will not register before Beer and Psalms. Beer and Psalms is also not on Ark Encounter property. The Beer and Psalms event is happening on Wednesday, October 11th from 6:30-9:00 PM at the Grant County Fairgrounds: 115 Baton Rouge Drive, Williamstown, KY 41097 (15 minute drive from the Ark). Heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, snacks for the kiddos, and a bouncy house will be provided as well as hearty fellowship and singing! We do recommend eating a light dinner before coming. This is an outdoor fairground venue, so we also recommend that you wear shoes you don’t mind getting a little dirty and bringing a jacket. When you arrive at Beer and Psalms, volunteers will help direct you on where to park.
Registration for the conference will happen the following day, Thursday, October 12th starting at 5:00 PM in the Answers Center adjacent to the Ark. We’ll then officially kick the conference off with our first talk by Toby Sumpter at 7PM. There will be an After Party to follow at the View Event Center: 900 KY-36 W, Williamstown, KY 41097 (2 minute drive from the Ark). There will be pizza and beer/wine available for purchase, and fire pits to make s’mores for dessert! The first round of drinks will be provided by one of our sponsors!
- Arriving at the Ark: The Ark’s address is: 1 Ark Encounter Drive – Williamstown, KY 41097. When you arrive at the Ark Encounter for the conference, you will park, take a shuttle to the Ark Encounter Grounds, and then go through Ark Encounter admissions. Ark Encounter admissions is where you will present the 3-Day Bouncer Pass that is required for all FLF conference attendees. Please note that the Ark parking fees are $15 for standard size vehicles and $20 for oversized vehicles. We recommend arriving a little early each day of the conference as well as bringing anything with you that you may need throughout the day due to the shuttle process. Please keep in mind that the Ark does not permit concealed carried guns and there is a security process when going through their admissions.
- The Creation Museum: Please be aware that the Creation Museum is not on the Ark Encounter grounds. It is located in Petersburg, KY (about a 45 minute drive from the Ark Encounter). If you’d like to visit the museum, please plan your trip accordingly. We recommend going to visit the museum the morning of Thursday, October 12th before conference registration opens that evening.
