    Best of luck getting this one going. You've proven you can do it. Would love to join you, but it's just too far for us for a weekend and all my holidays are used up (and I don't think my liver can take 2 rallies in one year!) Hope you can get this one off the ground, I think there's enough interest. Jeff

    I would look more at bring it this side (West) of the 400 .. and push it back further to make use of the Thanksgiving Holiday ..

    I was already thinking of Earl Rowe for a 2016 Thanksgiving gathering .. almost the same as a rally but not quite .. a Thanksgiving themed organized potluck (organized as in people are asked to bring specific foods) on the Sunday with some planned campfires Saturday & Sunday maybe do some pumpkin carving Saturday afternoon ..

    We spent Thankgiving in Bonnechere PP one year, not far from there. It was nice to go canoeing up into algonquin during the day and come back to camp in the afternoon. It was quite cold by then, and our pie froze, IIRC.

    I can't remember much else about that trip, but it was really beautiful country on the drive up, and the drive home took forever.

    What do you guys think of Balsam Lake? Its GTA-friendly, further West, and not right on a highway. I've never stayed there, but we've driven past a few times.

    Hot Apple Cider and Brandy with a cinnamon stick always did it for me.

    There something nice about the smell of food cooking and campfires in the fall

    That takes me to my happy place

    For me, a crockpot of Hot buttered Rum works anytime after the apples get crisp right through to spring thaw.

    Sounds pretty good. I know it is a long ways off still, but it sounds like a decent place to do it. Sites are pretty large for the most part...
    we look forward to hearing more about this one....

    I'm obviously feeling like a joiner tonight.
    If the first rally doesn't scare us off, a fall rally would interest us as well. It would just depend on conflict with family celebrations on that weekend.

    Only scary things at the summer rally will be the dark side influence from yours truly.. The new surprise drink for the rally, designed by yours truly.... And the broken down golf carts supplied by Ziggy ...

    The Fall Gathering will probably be a bit more tame just due to the time of year, with the cooler weather and shorter days..

    Are you converting Art ?

    I'd say they fall into the lighter side of dark.. Not much, just a little..

    A new park for me. Would love to go there for a rally! Dates work for me, too. Thanks for working on organizing this rally.
