    I will never return to rural Ontario, I like my blood where it is. :p I've never seen misquitos who didn't react to Deet before. I'm not talking the 15% stuff either, I had the 98% deep woods stuff and they just kept coming.

    Nothing yet. I still have to make those calls.

    Regardless, the location has been 99% decided.

    *drumroll*

    Canyon Hot Springs, which is near Revelstoke, BC.

    Is anyone from B.C. Confirmed 100% that they are coming? No sense driving all the way over there if we are the only ones...

    I just can't tonight because something extremely important is happening so I need to keep the phone line free as much as possible. ;)

    I should also mention the deadline:

    All persons wishing to attend ForceFest '05, should know 100% for sure if they can make it no later than: July 1st

    We need to start planning things like the kitchen and the number of sites/tents/etc. so if you don't know by then, then hopefully you can make it to '06. :)

    I haven't received much (any) feedback on this, so I'm going to use my powers as the guy who came up with the idea and just say it's going to be in Radium.

    Now Radium is another federal campsite (specifically, the place we're aiming for is called Dry Gulch) which doesn't take reservations, meaning that some of the members from Edmontooine are going to need to head down half a day to a day early to get and hold sites. That being said we're going to need to know HOW MANY.

    The deadline to say you're coming is Canada Day (this friday) so if you're name is not on this list then you'll have to speak up before then. :)

    If your name should/shouldn't be on this list then you must contact me, either through [link=http://boards.theforce.net/pm_send.asp?usr=742082]PM[/link], email (berkley@interbaun.com), or by posting on this thread.

    Also, let me know if you're bringing your significant other and/or children. (No children under 12, sorry :( )

    Hope to see lots of you on the August long weekend. :D

    Well, we looked at the map and tried to find somewhere that was about the same distance for both. And as we had no one confirmed from BC and were hoping to intrest people in Calgary, we picked Radium.

    Sorry to anyone who couldn't make it this year. Hopefully things will be better organized for next year. :(

    I am planning on starting things much earlier next year so you'll have plenty of advance notice. It'll likely be the same dates next year as well, so mark your calendars and hope to see you there. :)

    You started plenty early this year man, and things were as organized as they could be. People just didn't get back to you regarding it... :( Nobody seems to be willing to travel at all or make compromises.

    Yeah. I would have liked to have started a lot earlier and had a location locked down, but C3 kinda intruded on that, and a little movie called Episode 3 ;)

    Kinda hard to lock down a location when you don't know who is coming...
