WOOHOO It's the return of MBC & IAB to monkeyfest!!! :cheers: There is definitely room too!!! I believe we're now up to 14 monkeys! Hopefully we can get a couple more and the cost will come down for sure! Right now it's looking like $75 per person.

It's time!!!! Vote for the weekend and post up if you're planning on attending. I'll book the lodge when we have enough folks interested. Again, if you say you're coming your in for the $$$ if something comes up and you can't make it. I am hoping to keep the cost to $65 or less.

Once we have picked a weekend, I will edit this post with the dates and we'll start a "confirmed" list!

:cheers:
So...when is this post getting updated? Just askin'.:D

FYI, another change of plans: MBC and I will take a couple of bunks instead of sleeping in the loft. We'll stay in the "no snoring" room.

Well IAB you know I'll be on that ride with you!!! I'm sure the others will be glad to hear that! I'll have to dig out a special pint glass for ya!
:cheers:
I honestly don't know how long my rides will be but three hours is probably going to be stretching it.

I'm thinking the loft is going to be the better option, right above the wood stove.
The wood stove is part of the reason we're opting for bunks. I sleep better in cold rather than heat.

Will anyone be joining me at Bromont on Sunday? If driving home from there is a concern, I have a place on Lake Champlain that I'll be staying at Sunday night, I can put up a couple people for the night if needed.

MBChickie and I are not sure what time we're arriving Friday. Could be noonish, could be 9:00ish. So, we may or may not be in for Trout River pizza.
