    Sent out a few messages to folks who have in someway attended one of the TGG over the past couple years to get some input into location selection. So based on that here are the final three parks for consideration based on the feedback and on the parks operating dates. . Poll is set to close in 4 months. So information will be posted shortly there after. Dates for the TGG will be Friday October 11 to Monday October 14th (Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend).

    If you have a suggestion for a possible location outside of these, please share it.

    Many folks have asked about holding the rally the weekend prior to Thanksgiving and holding more centrally located, so others can make it due to commitments over the Thanksgiving Weekend, while this causes an issue for us, these rallies are not planned around us, they are planned around the members. So, I'll hand the raines for this year over to Mel, So it can still go ahead.

    We will be unable to attend since I have vacation for the actual Thanksgiving Weekend itself. This is the down side of doing vacation bids over a year in advance is once bid and awarded, they cannot be changed. Now I do finish work on the Friday previous to TG, but I am not doing nearly 12 hours of driving (time Northwards and time back Southwards.)

    Not to worry, we will head out as planned for the TG weekend, I'll post these details in a separate thread once we have decided the location, so those who want to join for the weekend, potluck or just a fire can.

    It’s time to book! For consideration:
    Mikisew Provincial Park. About 45 min north of Huntsville and just west of South River. I prefer the 100’s(electric) and 200’s(non-electric) loops.

    Is Mikisew still open then ??

    I had thought somewhere it was posted about being at Canisbay, but that could have been something else.. either of the two work for us.. Even a run over to Grundy works ..

    Yes, it’s all of Mikisew’s loops are open for Thanksgiving—until Oct 15th—and taking reservations now. I linked the res page in my other post.
    For those coming from the south, it’s about the same travel time from Huntsville as it is to Canisbay. Nice lake for paddling, dog beach, and great trails.

    Yes, we need to book soon—whichever Park we decide on. The 2-4 weekend will prompt people to start booking future long weekends.
