Canada Day Campout - Eh to Zed con

Post by BullOnParade » Fri Apr 25, 2014 11:24 am

Talks have started in planning our annual camping event on the Canada Day long weekend. Exact location to be given to those who confirm.
The location is near the town of Marmora, Ontario. A wooded lot with road access.
You need to be able to provide yourself with food and water for the duration of your trip, though a lot of meals end up as pot luck when ZSC003 camps.
If you are worried that you don't have appropriately equipment but are still interested in coming, speak up, several of our members have spare gear they'll be willing to share.
These events are always a great excuse to get away from the daily grind and relax a little in nature. On top of that we tend to discuss and practice a lot of survival techniques, and even do a bit of knowledge show off sharing.
On top of fire building, shelter, and campfire cooking (which we always end up practicing), I plan to do an introduction to wet shaving for anyone who's interested.

So if you're looking for something to do on the long weekend, come on out. All are welcome to come share the outdoors.

Because Canada day is on a Tuesday, I cant say with certainty what day will be the holiday. I can predict it would be the Monday before, making it June 28th through 30th. But I could be wrong and it be July 4th through 6th or 5th through 7th.
If anyone can confirm the date banks and government building will be taking as holiday, we will go with that one.

Ok so I talked to my boss at work supposedly no long weekend this year. I also talked to the bank and again I got no long weekend so I need to know when is the car from niagara falls leaving and coming back. I was told there was a car pool so what is the schedule for that car how do I get on that list can I bring a friend? Otherwise I'm gonna wind up camping in the backyard again and as much fun as that is it would be nice to try something different.

We are going with the 28th through 30th.
I have a wedding to attend on the afternoon of the 28th, so I will either bug out in a suit, or arrive early Sunday morning.
