Working a casino is a great opportunity to chat with fellow CCA Calgary members, contribute to the financial well-being of the chapter and taste some novel gluten free food.  Each shift worker is entitled to a meal from the on-site restaurant during his/her shift.  However, Calgary Chapter always organizes Gluten Free food for those of us who prefer/require.  It is a great opportunity to try gluten free food you may not have run into before.
