Tedfest 2012

Post by Ted in T.O. »

After a number of requests for next year's Tedfest date I thought I better post to make it official.

Last year's event was a huge success at the new venue and we will make a few changes to the parking of cars. I have been in contact with Stirling on the Alpina.ca board and we will be trying to get as many Alpina cars to the event this year as possible. Tedfest will be on Saturday June 30th, 2012 from 11am till 4pm. It will be held at the Bradley House which is 3 minutes south of the old venue. It is a bigger site with more trees and a short walk to the lake. Host hotel is the same as well. Friday is car wash day at my house and beer and pizza dinner. Saturday is the Show and Shine with prizes to be handed out and trophies for the furthest distance travelled. There will be a food vendor serving hot dogs, sausages, and pop for a fee. Saturday evening BBQ back at my place after the event. On Sunday morning there will be a pancake breakfast at my place at 9am. The pizza and beer,Show and shine, BBQ and pancake breakfast is free again this year with great thanks to our sponsors. The venue, host hotel, and my house are all within 5 minutes driving time. As of June 1st, 2009 the Americans will need a US Passport to get into Canada and to get back over. Information link is attached. Bring your lawn chairs, cameras and be prepared for a belly full of laughs and fun. We have you covered with the lawn chairs if you are flying in. :laugh: If you have any questions please ask away and I will answer them ASAP or visit our new website. www.tedfest.ca. and register for the event. Hope to see you there.

Yours Truly. The Tedfest Team

Hey Ted. Ben and I are going to try to make it up! We missed you last year because of the family reunion and vaca at the same time as the Fest. But I don't see anything in the way right now. :banana:

Anybody up for some more of my world renown cheesecake or key lime pies?

See you in the summer,
Andrew

Good thinking Andy, but I also need something up there to catch the drool from the near anticipatory period. :laugh:

I think driving up through MN, around Superior and Huron in the Canadian Shield would be pretty fun.
