    Correct. I thought the Thursday was good. Many will arrive Thurs or Friday.

    If we attend, (I'm hoping we will, but its too far off to be sure) I would love to put together a kids only bike race around the loop. I'm sure we could find a way to block off the top of the loop and set up a start/finish line, then have races by age group, capping it at, say, 12 yrs old (Arbitrary number, but I think I could manage prizes for 4 or 5 heats).

    My boy loved 'racing' his bike around our loop, no matter how many times he was beat.

    Well we upgraded our camp kitchen today, we picked up a camp chef Denali 3x from Costco, came with a Dutch oven. We also went to CT and picked up a 12in camp chef skillet ($24) and the cashier messed up and gave me back too much change so got it for ($9) lol just in time for our big trip Friday for 10 nights [CP]

    That is one fine looking cooking centre. I'd wander over for a mess of beans and bacon cooked on that!

    Your going to love cooking with the cast iron skillet
    and the new stove will allow you to control the heat with the skillet
    The dutch oven also open many doors for camp cooking
    Is it cast iron ?

    Congrats on the new cooking gear and have a great time next week

    It's been a couple of weeks now since the rally. Before everyone forgets who was all there, did we ever get a final official count on how many attendees we had?

    I thought there was some talk about us being one of the larger rallies put on. Did we make it, or were we way off?

    Re: 2016 3rd Annual Ontario "Down By the River Rally"

    Ok. So, I tallied the sites and the people. I think it's right.

    56 people in total on 18 sites. This was not in including jman's extra crew as I wasn't sure the exact #

    Hope I am close.
