Sure gonna put a damper on the weekend.

They won't even let us use portable propane firepits either. Typical May long week-end, rainy forecast for Calgary. At least no snow.

That's what I don't understand, they say alot of sites are closed around Calgary because of the water shed and being to wet, then impose the fire ban. I can understand up north, but down here?

I was camping last weekend just SE of Calgary, and it was pretty dry.

I don't understand banning the propane fire places though. I bought mine just because of fire bans. I just don't see how they are any more dangerous than a propane BBQ.

I heard from 2 media sources that the propane fireplaces are okay. I was in kananaskis last weekend and wasn't to dry. Their fire rating was low according to their signs. Still snow there.

The official site contradicts that.
The fire bans prohibit the use of all wood, briquette and propane/natural gas fires, including those contained in designated fire facilities and portable fire pits.
