    Geese are bad there all the time. Or at least every time I have been.... I was never a fan of the beach there, but there is a decent amount of shade to be had as well.... remember... this is a man made lake....

    I guess wasaga is a close enough drive away :rolleyes: lol

    I’m not equipped for the last one :eek:...perhaps I could borrow...;)
    I do have a couple of card games that work for both small and larger groups.

    Wow! Didn’t know that The Weather Network gave bug reports...
    I’ll definitely be using that in the future. Thanks, Craig!

    I am throwing the kids inflatable pool in the back of the van, I figure with this heat that it might be the best way to be cool.
    My DH hates the heat, I hope there is enough shade for him.

    The 2018 5th Annual Ontario Summer Rally comes to an end with the final fire of the official rally.

    Hope everyone who attended enjoyed themselves dispite the high temperatures. . Even though a few attendees were forced to leave early due to the weather, it was great seeing and meeting them.

    Potluck was once again amazing. So many different dishes.

    In 3 months the Thanksgiving Gathering rally will take place (see the thread for details) and not too long after that planning for 2019 will begin..

    Also congrats to Ccptbo and Strawhouse for winning custom made camping signs by Bonfire Creations .

    Look forward to seeing familiar and new faces in 2019..

    Just got home from the rally, now back to reality. The rally was great, although a little on the warm side. 40 degree temps on both Sat and Sun, and hours without power. No power means no ice machine, Ugh! We were with great company, so that helped to beat the heat and not seem so bad. Thanks for the great hospitality of everyone there, the potluck was fantastic, great cooks on hand. The fires hosted by ccptbo, Snow, and Strawhouse are always a good time to shoot the bull about everything camping. Can't wait to see everyone next year!

    It was another great rally, despite the hiccups. Yes, the food was soo good I had no room for desert o_Oo_O. We really enjoyed seeing everyone and meeting new friends. Thanks to all that were hospitable through the weekend and can't wait until next year. :):)

    Thanks once again for organizing this year's rally. It was definitely a hot one and the power outages were horrible for our air conditioner......oh wait, we have a pup with no A/C. :(
    It was nice to see everyone again, even though we couldn't stay for the pot luck. See you guys again next year! [8D]

    Another great rally! Thanks so much for everyone hosting campfires and Pat for hosting the Potluck....great food and great company by all! Despite the heat and no power on occasion, we all got by with pools and drinks. Looking forward to next year already!

    Hi all. Any thoughts on dates and location for 2019? Thinking of trying to combine rallies with 4 mile near Niagara so we can visit from MA and meet all you fine folks!

    Not sure yet of either the dates or the location... Chances are the location will be at 1 of 4 or 5 parks in the Southern central area of the Province (Orillia South, Blue Mountain to the West and Bobcaygeon to the East, with the Lake to the South) ..

    Dates will depend on two things.. Mainly my work schedule and where I can get vacation.. Good chance next year it will be pushed a week..

    Pushed a week next year? Not sure I can make it that week. I think I'm working or something at that time. A regular weekend won't do, it needs to stay on Canada Day.
