    Default2008 Ontario Spring LabFest!!! [UPDATE] Sat June 14th or 28th??

    [UPDATE Tues 4th]

    Hi everyone!

    Just heard back from Susan at Royackers. She has:

    Sat. June 14th 1-4pm
    Sat. June 28th 1-4pm


    available.

    Those of you who are interested in coming, can you please let me know if you have a preference over which date? Otherwise, I'll make an executive decision by Friday night (March 7th). (speak now, or forever hold your peace!!)



    ************************************************** ********************************

    Time to start planning our 2008 LabFest!!!

    I've been hearing that spring (May/June) sounds like as good a time as any!

    Just curious as to:
    1. who would be interested in coming
    2. what weekends are NO GOOD for you in May/June... we will try to accomodate everyone as best as we can.
    3. if you have a preference Sat or Sun (it will probably be 10 or 11ish till about 2pm?)
    4. where you would like to have it this year!

    Last year we held it at Royackers, in Ariss, ON. http://www.royackers.com/index.htm

    Ariss is:
    a half hour from the KW/Guelph/Cambridge area
    an hour from Hamilton/Burlington
    an hour and a half from London, Toronto and the Niagara region
    approximately three and a half hours from the Windsor/Detroit area
    five hours from Up North (kelli!)
    and five and a half hours from our lovely nation's capital. (added for Bev and Tanya!! )

    Royackers was wonderful! We had access to the pond for swimming (dogs and people), a grassy area for Chuck-It and butt-tucking and a picnic area. Cost was $30/hr.

    Currently, Royackers is booked the weekends of:
    May 17/18 (May 2-4 weekend)
    June 18/19/20 so those are out.

    I will email them to see if any of their other weekends in May/June are booked.

    **Also open to suggestions to other venues and ideas please!!!**

    Last year's attendees were:
    Nancy (kaytris) & Tristan and Sophie
    Becca (PhoebeJeebies), Tim & Phoebe
    Kate (Baloo317), Dan & Baloo
    Pauline (tuckersmom), SU & Tucker
    Karina (TangerineFizz) & Yeller and Abzilla
    Amy (Aim), Kelsey & Tucker
    Agnes (Neska) & Saba
    Rosanne (BuddyandBailey), SU, kiddies & Buddy & Bailey
    Gabi (Jenica), Marc & Jenica
    Ryan (Rye-High) & Rylee
    Janine (BucksMom), SU & Buck
    and of course, me and Henery!

    Now, I know we have FAR more Ontario JLers than that!!!!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone again, and meeting more of you!!! We have some new puppers to meet (Diesel!) and skinbabies (Alanna!!)!!

    ETA: Okay, so far weekends that are OUT are:
    May 17/18 (Royackers booked; May 2-4 weekend)
    May 24/25
    June 7/8 (also Lab Owners Club Specialty weekend)
    June 18/19/20 (Royackers booked)

    I am looking forward to getting together again. We will be coming with Jenica and Diesel. At this point we are very flexible schedule-wise and Royackers would be great. We can't wait!
    Felicia, thank you for getting the ball rolling.

    I would be interested in coming.. although i think it would be a very long drive for Abbey...(4hrs) But put me and Abbey down as a maybe!!

    Perhaps there's other MI people that would want to carpool and split gas??

    LOL! i was going to comment as the title seems to leave the rest of us out

    I plan to TRY and go Bev. The spring is harder for me, and if there is another in the fall i will PLAN to go. But it's year end so for me it'll be a last minute decision (possibly).

    Rocky and I are a maybe (with possibly Tundie)
    Charlie (foster) and Rocky

    I'm pondering it. It will depend on when Dwayne gets back and what plans he has. I know we have to make a road trip to his parents' place in NB as soon as he gets back. He has to move to Toronto in August. If there was one then, I could drive him down with his stuff for college then go to the lab love-in. I'm a maybe at this point!

    I was hoping there would be a LabFest in the spring, woohoo!!!

    We are planning on coming, probably just Rob and I and Cooper of course, we'll see about the kids???

    Can't think of any weekends that are out for us, Sunday would probably be better, but really doesn't matter too much and Royackers sounds like a great place.

    I'm so excited, can't wait!!! ;D
