The 2nd Annual SW Ontario LabFest is quickly approaching!! Thanks Kate, for reminding me about the pot-luck sign up thingie.
Royackers pond in Ariss, ON http://www.royackers.com/
Saturday, October 6th from 11-2 (this is the Saturday of the Thanksgiving weekend). You can come anytime during those 3 hours, we have the pond reserved for that time period!

Felicia & Henery: cold cheese tortellinis on a stick + dip; doggie cookies

20 peeps, 14 labs and 1 Sophie!!!! ;D
Lotsa swimming, Chuck-It'ing and all around lab lovin' fun!! There are big grassy fields surrounding the pond, as well as a nice little beach for entry into the pond and a deck with a few picnic tables on it (if I remember correctly). Pond is also safe for peeps-swimming, though it might be a smidge cold.
We're doing pot-luck this year, so those of you who are coming, please reply in this thread and let me know what you'd like to bring! (Kate, it doesn't have to be home-made!! LOL!)
The pond rents for $30/hr, so if everyone (ie. each "family") brings $7.50, that'd be great!
If anyone can think of anything I've forgotten, please add!
Aw man...I am so envious! That is a beautiful park! Have fun all.
Linda and Zoë, the Umlaut
You can take the ? mark away from my name- we will be there. It will be a very busy day for us but we are squeezing you in. Nancy I will not be able to drive yu so I hope you and Felica have worked that out. My day starts at the wee hours of 5 am where my son has to be on the ice at 630, daughter at8 and then we have to drive to this, stay a few hours, fly home, drop the dogs off and be in caledon for 315pm for my son to have a game at 4pm I'm exhaust just thinking about it LOL
As to what can I bring. something that takes no time. I will bring some squares from M&M I can grab them from the freezer when I leave. Hope that is alright.
I guess we al bring our own drinks? and chairs- don't forget chairs just incase there isn't picnic tables.
I'll bring spiral thingys from M&M's. I don't want to subject anyone to my creations. lol.
I will be a little late, as Cameron has his first day of hockey. I'm hoping no one plans on coming that day. I haven't asked. But I'm coming regardless.
Don't forget to wear something that you don't mind getting dirty. LOL. Tucker loves to shake off right next to ppl.
Oh oh oh!! I am SOOOOO excited!! I cannot wait!!!
I am not sure what I'll bring yet. Probably some cookies for sure, but I'll wait to see what we need before committing. I'll pick up the holes I'm thinking?
I would love to bring us some soup or warm cider but I don't know if I have a thermos big enough for that.
Me, Abzilla and the Helomonster.
Amy are you bring the kids? Mine will be coming
YAY!!! We can bring some dessert type things...maybe some chocolate delicious stuff and also some healthy fruits. Phoebe Jeebies says she's very excited!!! ;D
Becca & Phoebe
Chairs are a great idea!!
Rosanne, I'm going to pick Nancy up and drop her off at the subway station, so no problemo.
YAY!! I'm glad everyone can still come!!
Yay! Sorry, operating on very little sleep here.. how will the potluck work? Is someone assigning stuff?
