Calling all Ontario / West Quebec members

July 19th, 2021
The summer is slipping by quickly and it will soon be time for the kids to be back in school. It would be a shame if another year went by without getting to know the 365 members who live close by (or relatively close by in a province as large as Ontario!)

I meant to do this earlier but time has just flown by until I realized that it is middle of July and I have yet to set up anything.

So, I am extending an open invitation to any 365 member who lives in Ontario or West Quebec to get together with others members for a day (weekend) of fun and photos on the last Saturday of August, 27th, 2021.

I live just east of Alexandria which is one hour south and east of Ottawa, 45 minutes west of Montreal and about half hour east of Cornwall. The address is 21692 Concession Road 10, Glen Robertson ... which is the gravel road one mile south of the paved County Road 10 which runs between Alexandria and Glen Robertson. I know ... why they did that is totally unbelievable!

The actual get together will be Saturday but I am certain that those of you traveling a great distance will want to spend the night and perhaps take in some sights on Sunday as well.

Please forgive me if I have missed anyone when I tagged those members that I know who live in the area. Pass on the invitation to anyone I may have missed, or let me know of those I missed so I can be sure to include them.

I will make sure that there is something interesting to photograph on that day … probably at the local St. Raphael’s ruins.

I hope to see lots of you there!

I'm in Belleville, so not all that far away, but won't be able to make that weekend, though I'd love to. Maybe the next time.
July 20th, 2021
I will be there

Oh, Liz! I was trying to remember who was in Belleville but could not remember for the life of me.
So sorry you cannot make it. We would love to have you if it turns out that your plans change.

Oh, yay!! Going to be a lot of fun!

Oh what fun!! I love a camera meetup!! Won't be traveling anytime soon to one though. (But could be tempted to fly to this one!!)

You would be a delightful addition and I would meet you at the airport! Not sure about the Covid restrictions for international travelers though.

Wendy, what a generous offer! This sounds amazing, but it’s right in the middle of our cottage holiday so I won’t be able to come. Thank you for asking.

@ljmanning
So sorry to hear that! Please do enjoy your holiday. Sounds so relaxing.
July 20th, 2021
Sure wish I could join you all- but we will be traveling in the opposite direction that weekend to see family. I'll be there in spirit!

It's the Covid restrictions on entering Canada that really frustrates me. There are quite a few members close in the North East part of the States that could easily be here in just a few hours but not allowed to cross the border.

@farmreporter Fully vaccinated Americans are allowed into Canada for discretionary travel, without quarantine, as of Aug 9th. So you could ask American friends too!

making arrangements.

I would really love to, but due to health reasons I can't travel anymore. right now I'm waiting for a CT Scan and then the results.
I wish everyone attending a great time.

@summerfield
I can pick you up at the train station. Cornwall train is the more convenient one!

@bruni
Oh, Bruni! Take care of yourself and get better soon!
We will miss you!

What a great idea! I live in Barrie but will not be able to attend. Have fun!

@fayefaye
So good to meet another Ontario girl!
You had some horrendous weather last week.
Did you have any damage?
July 22nd, 2021
What a great invitation! Wish I were closer, but Oregon is a wee bit too far!
July 25th, 2021
hi there... this sounds like such fun! i will attend if i can, but please don't count on it... work is insane plus i have to get two boys off to university (both are leaving the city and going into residence in their first year - and trying to get lists from them of things they will need is like pulling teeth 😖 )

@northy
Make it if you can!
We would love to have you around.

@farmreporter Barrie got hit pretty hard but I was lucky to be on the other side of the city.
