I'd love to drive down there for this.... But, not so much anymore if it consumes two tanks of petrol for my car.

I can't pay for your gas... but I will sponsor some of the drinks and food.

Evening of August 1st seems the best. Saving $1/day from now until then pays for gas from Toronto!

After much deliberation I have decided to move this event to Oakville. I will begin an attendance list in a couple weeks once the details are worked out.
